Garden basket full of radiant roses

A rose is a rose is a rose… They are available all year round, but with their splendid colours and flair, roses are real eye-catchers during springtime! FLEUR florist Ann Desmet mesmerises with pastel-coloured Avalanche roses and creates a design that will definitely sparkle in your garden!

What do you need?


  • Rosa ‘Avalanche’, mixture of soft pastel and peach-coloured roses
  • Dianthus ‘Green Trick’, moss carnation
  • Matthiola incana, hoary stock
  • Hedera helix, ivy with long vines

Other materials:

  • OASIS® floral foam
  • A large and a small basket

This is how you make the garden basket with roses:

Place pots of ivy along the edge of the large basket. Then insert a smaller basket in the middle of the large basket and fill it with floral foam.

First you arrange the roses over the moistened floral foam. Try to get a dome shape. Add some volume to that shape with some salmon-coloured Matthiola. Then add some green carnations and moss.

Weave some ivy between the flowers so it looks like there is a connection between the flowers and the plants. And your garden basket full of roses is ready! Enjoy!
