When it comes to making flower arrangements with the cut flowers in my garden, I’m very much a novice. I have absolutely no floral training, and I’ve never really made bouquets aside from family and for friends. So, when new-to-me flowers are in bloom – it’s the perfect opportunity to try to learn more about putting them into cut flower arrangements.
For this arrangement, I wanted to start out with some base flowers of alyssum and mint. The main reason I chose the alyssum is because of its beautiful, sweet smell. The mint also adds a really nice hint of green.
The next flower that I wanted to use was the white ranunculus. Since the weather has gotten hotter, the ranunculus are almost finished blooming. I’m determined to make the most of the last few ranunculus stems of the season.
This is the ‘Milas Mix’ agrostemma that I bought from Baker Creek. Agrostemma looks so beautiful in the cut flower garden. The way that the delicate purple flowers sway in the breeze is absolutely magical. Best of all, the vase life seems to be really great so far. So beautiful!
I think this bouquet totally rocks. I love how the white in the middle of the agrostemma perfectly compliments the white ranunculus! Though I’m not certain it will happen, I’m really hoping that the rest of the agrostemma buds will start to open up in the vase. Does anyone know if this happens?
That’s all for this post. Hopefully, you liked it! As always, I’d love to hear all about your experiences growing agrostemma in the comments section below. I hope you’re having a great day!
