Arranging Flowers For A Small Vase

How to arrange flowers for a small vase: Florist Trish Haunton shows you how to arrange flowers for a small vase. See how to arrange red roses in a small vase using an aspidistra leaf and bear grass.

You will need:

Step 1:

* A small clear glass vase- 3/4 full of water,
* 12 short stemmed flowers
* one aspidistra leaf
* bear grass
* a ruler
* scissors
* a vegetable knife
* a dash of household bleach
* and a bucket of warm water

Step 2: Remove using the knife. Remove all the thorns also remove any leaves that will be below water level in the vase. Leaves rot in water and will make the flowers wilt more quickly causing the water to smell.

Step 3: Prepare the vase. Ensure you vase is clean filled with fresh cold water and add a small dash of household bleach to keep it nice and fresh. This may sound unlikely but it really works.

Step 4: Line the vase. We're using an aspidistra leaf, you can you any long leaf that is available.

Step 5: Cut stems. The flowers should stand 6 cm taller or half the height of the vase. We want them to float over the top of the vase. Always cut stems at an angle, this allows as much water as possible to be drawn up to the top of the head of the flower. With woody stems such as roses, slightly split the stems 2 cm up middle as well.

Step 6: Arrange flowers ensuring they are all the same height and are evenly placed. Using the bear grass put one end in close to the edge of the vase and loop it over the flowers and in the other side. Repeat 4 times to give a stylish finish to your arrangement.
