Florets - Floral Quote by Shane Connolly



"Fact: you can never have too many containers. The containers you choose for plants or flowers are almost as important as the plants or flowers themselves. A container can emphasise peculiar natural qualities by holding the stem in a particular way; or intensify a flower's subtle hues with its own lustre. 
Containers also link the flowers to their environment and help them look like part of a particular décor. They can also help create a mood or theme for special events."
