Flower Hack: Dried Hops Garland

 

Autumn is just around the corner, which means it’s hops season! And back with another flower hack is Shelley Anders from our Carlsbad Branch!

 


 

Dried Hops Garlands

 

A dried hops garland can be the perfect unique element for any event. For a dried hops garland, it’s best to hang the garland now while it’s fresh – the key is to hang it where you want it to go then DON’T touch or move it or else it will SHATTER. Dried hops garlands make a great arch display, so pre-attach it to a form now, and when your event is here, move the dried, shaped garland to the arch!

Flower Tip: Lily of the Valley

Lily of the Valley Flower Tip

 

Here’s a fun little tip to start off your week, brought to you by our very own Judy of Mayesh Orange County!

To get her Lily of the Valley to open better, she puts them in a cup of water and bags them with her smallest sleeve. Due to the Greenhouse Effect, it forces the blooms to open almost all the way to the top, producing huge, gorgeous blooms.

Like Judy’s tip? Try it out for yourself and let us know how it goes!
