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
- 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!
