Florets - Floral Quote - # 140 - by Alethea Harampolis and Jill Rizzo



'Florets - Floral Quote' is a series of blog posts where I feature quotes by authors - mostly well known but you will also find some obscure ones.

All of them have written one or several books about flowers, gardening, interior styling or interior design. Many are experts in their field but what is the most important is that they are all passionate about flowers.

I love books and in my ever growing library I look for quotes that I hope will be both helpful and useful for everybody who is arranging and styling flowers.


"TULIPS
These spring beauties can sometimes be difficult to work with because of their bendy stems and ever-changing shape. They continue to grow after they are cut, so trim them a bit shorter than you normally would when you first use them in an arrangement. If you leave enough space in your arrangement to account for movement and growth, their opening process is a pleasure to watch."
