Florets - Floral Quote # 44 by Paula Pryke




"Using Moss. In winter I find myself using moss in far larger quantities than at any other time of the year, both as a base and as part of the design. For the flower arranger there are several important types of moss. The clump-forming bun moss or looser flatter carpet moss are great for covering bulbs or mechanics in arrangements. Sometimes we use decorative green bun moss as part of the design, as its deep green velvety texture adds depth to arrangements."
