Bring the beauty of your garden inside
A garden filled with a variety of colourful flowers and plants is truly a treat for the eyes.
Sways of fuchsia, bellis, peony, primrose, and just about any variety of blooming beauties act as symbols of care, attention, and hard work.
The wonderful aspect of many varieties of flowers is that they can be cut and brought inside to spark some natural life to your interior décor.

Know before you grow – the basics of cutting flowers
Many varieties of cut flowers will last for weeks inside, so take every precaution you can to get as much life, and enjoyment, out of your flowers as possible.
Try to pick your flowers either first thing in the morning or later in the day, as this will reduce the risk of them wilting initially.
After cutting, place the stems of your chosen flowers straight into water and allow them to recover for a couple of hours, before placing them in a vase to display.
Make sure you change the water in your display every few days, to keep them looking healthy and happy for longer.
To further increase the longevity of your display, you could even add flower food to the water.
