Rebecca Cole - Flower Arranging Video



This is the fifth in a series of flower arranging videos. Links to all the other videos are at the end of the post.

In this one the American florist, designer and author Rebecca Cole shows you how to condition your flowers. Every florist has a few different tricks up their sleeve - so you can always pick up new tips and new ideas. 

Sometimes I don't agree with every single thing they do and say but it is always just as interesting to see different ways of doing things and then try them out. That way you can figure out what works for you.  

I like how she says to treat your flowers like ice cream - once you've bought them, don't make any more stops and get them in water as soon as possible - just like you need to put the ice cream in the freezer - pronto!

This video is 3:57 min long. Why not grab a cup of coffee and watch all of them. Enjoy!






Here are the links to the previous four videos:

1. How to Care for Your Flowers presented by the American florist Nico de Swert - 6:26 min. A lot of very useful hints.

2. How to Create a Hand Tied Bunch of Flowers presented by the British gardener, writer and presenter Sarah Raven - 10:15 min. It's long - but she shows you a different but brilliant way to make a hand tied bunch!

3. Flowers Every Day presented by the British florist and author Paula Pryke - 3:53 min. Just lovely!


4. LA in Bloom presented by the American food and lifestyle blogger Heather Taylor and the florist Holly Vesecky - 5:44 min. 


I hope you liked the latest video and that you were able to pick up some useful tips.




Thanks for visiting  and I'll see you back here very soon!
