Cost-Free Flower Arrangements
Experts at The New York Botanical Garden give you the basics of making flower arrangements with materials gathered from your own garden.
Special Care Flowers
Daffodils exude a clear sap that can kill other flowers. Cut these flowers and soak them separately in a vase for one hour before adding them to your arrangements.
Plants with stems that tend to bend, such as tulips, are best bundled together and left to sit for several hours before being placed in an arrangement.
