Making a Posy

To make a posy (a classic English hand-tied bouquet), Gayle uses long-stemmed flowers such as snapdragons, roses, tulips, and lisianthus. Eucalyptus and viburnum add various shades of green. The clear glass container showcases the posy’s distinctive spiraled stems.

Step 1: Starting about 8 to 10 inches from the top of the flowers, remove all foliage from the stems. Carefully strip off any thorns with a sharp paring knife.
