Florets - Floral Quote # 43 by Shane Connolly




"Cyclamen are incredibly popular winter houseplants. They deserve to be as they are so easy to grow and have a broad colour range. Large trays of flowery cyclamen plants seem irresistible, but a few lonely pots seldom look as good when you get them home. Then I discovered a new way of enjoying them: I harvest the flowers and use them for cut arrangements instead. They last very well; the plant keeps producing flowers on the windowsill out of sight; and I can have little vases to enjoy around the house. Somehow these small but intense clusters of flowers capture the enticing vibrancy of the potted version en masse."
