Summer Flower Combo Idea

A current favorite flower combination includes cinnamon basil, cornflowers, and cowherb or Vaccaria hispanica (you could get a similar look with Gypsophila elegans). Cowherb is actually a native, endangered plant where I live so I was happy that it was included in a wildflower mix I recently planted. Planting cutting, and replanting and saving seeds of native flowers is a great way to practice sustainable floral design.

Incorporating Plant Cuttings into Floral Designs

In the search to reduce the footprint of one vase of flowers, I am always looking for new, more-earth-friendly ways to approach floral design. 

Recently, I’ve been creating compositions with floral and plant cuttings. The stems grow roots in the vase and after go on to grow into plants and even offer food in the way of herbs, blossoms, or fruit to the owner.

I’ll be sharing this concept in a new hands-on workshop:

-Walk away with a list of plants you can use for this more circular design method

-Learn how to design with cuttings

-Learn how to use the cuttings after the floral arrangement has faded

-Make a floral composition using stems that will grow roots easily in the vase.

I am so excited to design with you in this new workshop on September 17th! All of our career students are automatically enrolled into the course.

If you’d like to book this single workshop, book here! You can also book it as part of our September Flower School Bundle by August 16th to save over $50!
