How to Arrange: Beyond The Sea

Happy we’ll be, beyond the sea… crossing seas, crossing continents or just crossing your fingers for sunshine at home, this arrangement is a picture postcard from a superb summer. Take in the view of some rather lovely lisianthus, sedum, santini and gladioli. 

Meet lisianthus

This week we’re loving Lisianthus. It’s an absolute beauty of a flower and has lots of amazing stories to tell. 

Watch Freddie’s video above to find out more… 

Other top tips about this arrangement…

Remember to always trim your stems and remove any leaves below the waterline. Then, be sure to change the water every few days to keep things really fresh.

Sedum is a seasonal favourite. You’ll notice its thick, verdant leaves – this is where this stem stores water, making it extra fresh (and very popular with tortoises). Because it stores water like this, it doesn’t need much water. It was once used as insulation for roofs – although sedum thatched cottages are slightly rare these days. 

You might know them as Chrysanthemums, but we call them blooms (because Freddie couldn’t say chrysanthemum when he was little). This iconic flower is one of the oldest cultivated in the world. Different coloured blooms carry different symbolic meanings, but love and trust are represented by them all. To keep them safe, our blooms will arrive in biodegradable nets made from sea kelp. Gently remove the nets from the bottom up. You’ll be so impressed with how long they last!

  • The flowers from last week have been stunning as ever. But this time the Gladioli and lilies have been super lovely. Thank you

  • […] Lisianthus – The beautiful Lisianthus has cowboy roots in the Wild West, which is where it originates. The seeds germinate best on freshly-turned soil, and the hooves of roaming herds of cattle, bison and horses churned up the prairie earth to create the ideal environment for lisianthus to thrive. Which is why it’s also known as Texas Bluebell or Prairie Gentian. It’s perfect for snipping off its lateral stems and popping into a bud vase too. […]
