Red, White, and Blooming
Just in time for summer holidays and cookouts, Senior Garden Editor Kate Karam has created a simple and patriotic arrangement.
1. Line a tiered basket with a layer of sphagnum sheet moss.
2. Cut stems of flowers to one length and at an angle. Remove any leaves that will be below water level.
3. Fill plastic or glass cups two-thirds full of cool water, place in basket, and add flowers; surround with moss to cover cups.
4. To ensure a lasting arrangement, change water daily. If flowers start to wilt, give the stems a fresh cut to reinvigorate them.
