Flower Studies 1937
Phillips Flowers and the Garden Flower Studies 1937 Flower Studies 1937 M30 - If you are good at growing flowers you will know that the growing is only half the battle, the real challenge is arranging them. Don’t just shove them in a vase - why not get this set and pick up some tips on how to display these plants to accentuate their shapes and colours. The colour pictures on the front show you what they should look like and the backs give tips on how to achieve this. For instance Anemones should be arranged in bowls and make good dinner table decorations, ornamental grasses or bronze foliage are the ideal background for Dahlias, Violets must not be mixed with other flowers and if floated in shallow bowls will scent an entire room, Roses require a simple arrangement without other foliage and care must be taken to select colours that don’t clash, Nasturtiums should be cut in long sprays, Sweet Peas should be arranged in crystal or glass to show up in any light, Gladioli must stand at eye level and they need foliage to hide the stems etc. A lovely set size 60 x 53mm.
