Artistic Floral Arrangement Show

I am very excited to offer an opportunity to experience a floral demonstration by artist, Mimi Lipps from Sante Fe, NM. I met Mimi last summer and immediately we shared our love for flower arranging. The show will take place this SUNDAY at 2pm. Mimi will demonstrate her design styles in several different vases and will teach us classical Japanese techniques for cut flower preservation.  She is encouraging attendees to bring a vessel from home to take home an arrangement by her.

She will highlight her concepts for design which include:

“Simple, good or happy color harmonies, space or balance, pleasant to flower or flowers are talking or smiling, and talk with nature. The nature has taught me about them, always.”

I love thinking about the flowers talking or smiling in an arrangement, looking forward to seeing you at the farm!!

Call me if you have any questions, 970-759-0318.

What’s in your fridge? Conditioning Flowers

WHAT’S IN YOUR FRIDGE?

Techniques to make your cut flowers last.

Tips for Conditioning Flowers offered by the New York Botanical Society:

  • The most important rule for conditioning flowers is to let them stand in a cool place out of direct sunlight in tepid water for several hours–preferably overnight. Add some cut-flower food. This will extend their bloom time by several days.
  • Cut all stems on a 45-degree angle. You are increasing the surface area for the water to get to the flower.
  • Woody stemmed branches from flowering trees and shrubs need to have the ends of their stems split. Split the bottom of each stem by making a 1/2 to one-inch vertical cut.
  • For long-lasting hydrangeas, submerge them in a bowl of cold water (head down) for one hour to help firm their petals. Let the flowers drip dry, cut their stems at a 45-degree angle, and place stems in warm water overnight.
  • 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. Warning: the sap can be a skin irritant.
  • Cut off the thick white section on the bottom of the stems of bulbs for better water absorption.
  • Some plants such as spurge, blood flower, and poinsettia contain a milky sap that can also be a skin irritant. To condition these flowers, sear the end with a match or dunk in boiling water for 15 seconds.
  • Plants with thin stems that tend to bend are best bundled together and left to sit for several hours in water before being placed in an arrangement. Tulips are a classic example.
  • Another tip for tulips if they start to droop is to take a pin and prick a small hole in the stem just below the flower. I gave this tip to my mother and she now swears by it.
  • Some flowers such as delphiniums, lupines, and amaryllis have hollow stems. Place a thin stick or wire up the stems or fill the stems with water and cover with a cotton ball at the base bound by a rubber band.
  • Cut carnations between the nodes on the stem for better water conduction.
  • Floral preservative always helps to extend the life of your bouquet. For a homemade recipe try 1 teaspoon of sugar, 1 teaspoon of household bleach, and 2 teaspoons of lemon juice per 1 quart of lukewarm water. The sugar is food, the bleach keeps it clean and the lemon juice keeps it acidic which helps with the uptake of water.

Bouquets For Mercy

What a pleasure it was to bring a dozen bouquets to Mercy Medical Center to be enjoyed by all who visit the hospital’s main lobby, breast care center and cancer center – generously donated by horticulturist and good friend, Jeff Wagner. You have put smiles on hundreds of faces at Mercy. Thank you, Jeff!

The first smile begins with Karen Midkiff, Chief Development Officer for Mercy and local cut flower enthusiast.
