OK, so you might not have a field of wildflowers outside your window. But a few DIY details like a loosely arranged vase of flowers, bursting with interesting stems can still bring wildflower magic to your home!
This week’s box features a quirky delicious mix of blooms:
Pincushions – native to the forests and mountain slopes of South Africa (although yours are grown locally!) these structural blooms last ages and come in a range of firey colours.
South Australian daisies – tiny and delicate, and work well as a balancing filler in your arrangement.
Snapdragons – these blooms are geotropic (the tips always bend upwards so they create great shapes in a vase!)
Golden cascade – long and whispery and indigenous to Western Australia
Emu grass – a native grass with a hint of silver, great for adding lots of texture.
Follow along with the tutorial or get your freestyle on! And don’t forget to tag your photos on social media with #bloomsituation or tag us @bloomboxco so we can find you!
