Greening a Holiday Basket
For a moment we put our botanist hat on while filming a podcast for YouTube and explained the different plant matter that can be used to decorate/greening a basket. Starting with wet oasis, we build up with branches of leyland cypress, pulling them apart and putting the longest at both bottom ends of the basket. You can see dried hydrangea for red, bronze nandina, yellow variegated wiegelia, oregano, strawberry leaves, variegated sage, and yellow tipped euyonymous. That’s just on one side. What you’ll find really interesting in the post tomorrow is how little flowers we’ll need to make a fun looking arrangement.
