It’s a special edition of “Backyard Blooms” as we film our tutorials in lockdown this week!

Lady Of The Night – Waratah Arrangement

with Stocks, Tulips and After Dark

The nights are getting just a teensy bit balmier, we’re staying out of bed just a smidge later, and this weeks box will have you up all night staring into its moody depths. Purple and red are generally seen as a colour combo no-no but we say bring it on! One of the reasons we can’t get enough of Spring is the multitude of colours available, and these lush, pomegranate and passionfruit tones are just what our inner goddess ordered.

It’s a virtual magic carpet ride with rich red Waratahs, deep purple, velvety Stocks and deluxe tulips. All set on a background of our favourite dramatic foliage After Dark.

So smooth on some deep red lippie, pour yourself a glass of red, channel your inner night-goddess and get your hands into this lushness! Stay classic with a standard glass vase, go full-on cave of wonders with a vintage brass jug or vessel, or slip these babies into some sleek black glass to really ramp up the dark glam.

Here’s what you’ll need.

  • 2 Waratahs

  • 3 Tulips

  • 2 Stocks

  • After Dark Foliage

  • clean vase and fresh water

  • sharp scissors or flower shears
