In spite of the north-east winds and constant frosts of late March scillas and chionodoxas are opening every day, some in the places where I want them to be and where I planted them and a good many in spots they have chosen for themselves. The first of all is the pale blue, very dwarf Scilla tubergeniana. The chionodoxas, with their white eyes, flower next, then the ordinary scillas. I know there are many more interesting scillas that one ought to grow, but I get great enjoyment from the common squill, surely one of the bluest flowers we have and so kind in seeding itself about that I think it is the most satisfactory of them all. The chionoscillas, which are paler and bigger, are lovely too. They are a cross between chionodoxa and scilla.

There are several paler scillas that flower later. S. messinaica is daintier and paler than the common squill and has great ideas about colonisation. In Mr. Hadden’s garden at Porlock it is turning large areas of the undergrowth into sheets of blue in April, and looks lovely with late winter cyclamen. S. bifolia is rather darker in colour and flowers in March and seeds itself well. S. azureus is not very different in shade but more akin to the bluebell.

I have one little clump of white scillas, the albino form of the common squill. I must have bought more originally, but only one little planting has survived. It comes up every year but doesn’t appear to seed itself, which is a pity because there are not many white flowers in March. In a good year my fat white crocuses, Snowdrift, are lovely, but we sometimes get late frosts which ruin their beauty.

For years I have grown the summer snowflake, Leucolum aestivam, which was given to me as a Bermuda snowdrop. I don’t know why it is called “summer”, because although it comes after L. vernum it is still spring when it flowers. It goes very pleasantly with small daffodils and is a graceful plant to grow among shrubs. I had a clump in rather a prominent place near the house. This was a good idea in early spring when that graceful clump of green was very welcome, not so good when a late frost bent the stems and ruined the outline, and not at all good in early summer when it was untidy, turning yellow but not decayed enough to be removed. Now I have transferred the ordinary L. aestivum to the front garden and have clumps between the hydrangeas and behind the “Lent Rose” hellebores. Here I hope it will escape damage from late frost and the other plants in the small beds will screen somewhat the last ugly days of its yearly span.

The superior form of this snowflake, L. aestivum Gravetye Giant, I have planted between stones in the ditch with other tall and graceful plants. It is here that I put the variegated and the double Solomon’s Seal and double camassias, the bronze-leaved montbretia, solfaterra and libertias. The plants that hang their heads on arching stalks get the highest places so that one gets the full beauty of the plant as a whole. The flowers of the snowflake are small for the long stems and thicket of leaves, so they look best with a leafy background.

But if March has a flower all its own I think it is the daffodil. We have daffodils in February, and there will be many still in April, but for the greatest display March is the month.

When we plant daffodils I think we should observe how nature does the job. Wild daffodils grow in grass and usually in clumps so that one can enjoy the outline of the flowers against a background of leaves. Many daffodils grown together need the backing of green if they are not to look garish as they do when spaced in serried rows in bare earth. The most ordinary types grown In their individual clumps with grass as a background are far lovelier than the rarest bulbs grown in a flower bed with nursery neatness. We are all grateful to the people who grow them like this under their apple trees, in their grass banks, at the sides of their drives or even in the grass outside their houses.

The first daffodil to flower for me is the little Tenby daffodil, Pseudo-narcissus obvallaris, only 8″ high, but a perfect miniature of a trumpet daffodil. Coming so early one is not critical of its yellowness. It is rather a deep color and later in the season I feel it is a little garish. By then the white P.-n. moschatus is in bloom and the poor little Tenby daffodil doesn’t stand up to the comparison.

In the same way we think the bold King Alfred a fine fellow until the white Beersheba and Mount Hood start to bloom. White daffodils can be grown in a flower bed, but the yellow ones definitely need to be toned down by grass. Thalia, which has two pale heads on one stalk, is lovely nodding under the shade of a tree and so is W. P. Milner, in palest sulphur.

One reason, I think, why we like jonquils is that the flowers are small and delicate and they have as background many dark, narrow leaves. In Captain Berkeley’s garden at Spetchley, near Worcester, there is a long narrow bed planted to the brim with jonquils, filling the air with fragrance and the eye with grace.

The really tiny daffodils, N. gdamineus, bulbocodism and other miniatures, need a really safe place where they can grow and hold their own. I have found a good place to plant them is in the peat garden among heathers, where they can be left in safety to come up year after year with a good background of foliage.

 

The principles of design are basic, fundamental truths to follow in creating floral arrangements. Although the principles for floral design were first outlined by the English during the Victorian Era, these principles are still valuable to us today. These design principles should not be regarded as mere rules; they are the foundation of every good design despite changing trends and new plant materials.

FLORAL DESIGN DEFINED

Floral design is the art of organizing the design elements inherent in plant materials, container, and accessories according to the principles of design to attain a composition with the objectives of beauty simplicity harmony, suitability, and expression. Flower arranging is another commonly used term for floral design. However, floral design is the more accurate term because the word design implies that the person arranging the plant materials is applying the principles of design.

MINICIPLES OF DESIgn

The principles of design (or art) are rules and guidelines to help a floral designer create a beautiful composition. The design principles are fundamental truths upon which to make accurate floral design decisions. The major principles of design are proportion and scale, balance, rhythm, and dominance. Other minor design principles include radiation, repetition, transition, variation, contrast, and focal point.

Not only learning the principles, but also using them well is essential in creating any kind of art, including arranging plant materials. The proper application of each of these principles will lead to artistic, pleasing floral arrangements. Each principle is important and interrelated to the others and can impact the entire arrangement.

PROPORTION

Proportion is the pleasing relationship in size and shape among the components in a design.

Proportion is the principle of art that is the foundation of all the other principles. Good proportion means the pleasing relationship in size and shape among objects or parts of objects. Scale is a part of proportion, dealing with relative size only among things, not shapes.

MIDDLE AGES

The flower arranging of the Middle Ages in Europe continued with the traditions of the Greek and Romans. Flowers were strewn on the floor and were made into wreaths and garlands. Although flowers were important during this period, very little information is known about additional uses, except for their use in food, beverages, and medicine.

ITALIAN RENAISSANCE

The Italian Renaissance period signifies a greater interest in the arts. This period is considered the beginning of flower arranging as it is known today. Flowers were placed in vases, urns, and bowls for their beauty and for their symbolic meanings. The rose portrayed love; the white lily meant chastity. The white lily became known as the Madonna lily because it appeared in so many paintings of the Annunciation, showing the angel Gabriel and the young Mary.

For church and state occasions, the floral design styles were colorful, large, full, and symmetrical with no stems showing. Casual arrangements for the home included short- stemmed, tight clusters of colorful flowers. Colorful arrangements of fruits, vegetables, and flowers placed casually on trays or in baskets were introduced during this period. Wreaths and garlands were still popular.

Influence on Today’s Designs

Today’s designs are greatly influenced by this period and the use of many flowers in a vase. Incorporating fruits and vegetables within flower arrangements is still a common sight for banquets, buffets, and other festive events. To some extent, people today still attach meanings to certain flowers. Roses are the flowers most commonly given at Valentine’s Day. Roses continue to signify love.

The Victorian era was named for Queen Victoria who ruled England from 1837 to 1901. The Victorian era contributed the most to establishing floral design as an art. The art of floral design was taught and thoroughly covered in books and magazines of that era. This era established many rules and techniques of floral design. Two design styles were popular large, abundant, masses of flowers and small, mixed, informal bouquets. The larger designs were generally round or oval with draping or trailing plant materials, such as fuchsias or bleeding hearts, to give a touch of the romantic. No obvious center of interest was created. Flowers of all types, especially new or unusual flowers, were favored. Foliage was prominently incorporated into designs, often at the edges to soften the framework.

The language of flowers was studied and used to convey meaning to communicate with others, especially during courtship. The tradition of sending flowers to ladies before social events was begun during this period. The Victorians were much more elaborate and thorough in attaching meanings to plants. Rosemary for remembrance was a Victorian example of a plant’s meaning. Roses varied in their meaning depending upon the color. For example, red was love, white was silence, and yellow meant infidelity. Heliotrope meant eternal love; larkspur was fickleness.

Popular containers were urns, vases, bottles, epergnes , tussie-mussie holders, wall pockets, cornucopias, and baskets. Glass was very popular although many containers were also made out of metal, ceramic material, and porcelain. The Victorians loved accessories, such as fans, figurines, shells, knickknacks, and glass paperweights.

Influence on Today’s Designs

The romantic look of the Victorian era is still a popular one today. Draping or trailing material added to soften an arrangement’s silhouette makes a beautiful contemporary romantic design. The addition of foliage is an important component of today’s designs. The Victorian era marked the beginning of floral design as an art form. Floral design became a creative field to study. The emphasis on the art and necessity of training during the Victorian era set the stage for the modern day florist.

AMERICAN STYLES

COLONIAL PERIOD

The European design styles greatly influenced the early American floral styles. American Colonial period styles were much simpler and also con-tained flowers and foliage that were native to the United States. The addition of grains, grasses, and dried flowers made American design styles very  unique compared to their European counterparts. Colonial ladies often arranged flowers of the same kind in bowls or baskets and then added filler flowers, such as baby’s breath. Other casual designs for the home were generally very colorful mixtures of simple naturalistic styles in vases, pots, or jars. Fan-shaped and triangular arrangements were very popular for more formal events for the home or church. Five-fingered vases, epergnes, urns, and stem cups were other commonly used containers.

Influence on Today’s Designs

The incorporation of dried materials with fresh flowers was introduced during this period and is still a popular technique today. Simple, naturalistic arrangements of one kind or simple colorful mixtures continue to be popular designs for the home.

Influence on Today’s Designs

The line mass style and the free form style added a new dimension to the florist industry beginning in the 1950s and 1960s. Variations of these design styles are still popular today. The space and linear component of the line mass continue to add vitality and drama to designs. Expressiveness is still important and allows for unique interpretations and uses of plant materials.

Sympathy flowers give a comforting presence to the bereaved person’s family at the visitation and funeral services. Typical sympathy pieces come in many styles and types, such as casket sprays, baskets of flowers, sprays, set pieces, and wreaths. A floral designer should be knowledgeable about design types and construction when designing flowers for funerals.

IMPORTANCE OF SYMPATHY FLOWERS

Sympathy flowers are flowers that are sent to a funeral home or a funeral service to honor the deceased or to comfort the bereaved. Flowers add warmth, vitality, and a softening garden-like presence to the uncomfortable atmosphere before and during the funeral service. Research by the American Floral Endowment and the Society of American Florists Information Committee concluded that flowers at the funeral home and funeral service serve the important roles of honoring the life of the deceased and giving comfort and some relief or softening of sorrow for the living

TYPICAL SYMPATHY FLOWER DESIGNS

Typical sympathy flowers include the family flowers, which are ordered by the family to honor their loved one. The family flowers typically include the casket spray, a casket inset piece (usually from younger family members), and sometimes a matching arrangement. A particularly attractive setting occurs when the family orders two matching arrangements for either side of the casket.

When the family comes to the floral shop to order family flowers, the tactful florist will find a quiet or private area for the family to make their decisions. Treat the family in a tactful, compassionate, business-like fashion to guide them through their decisions. Provide books and selection guides to make the process an easier one.

Other sympathy flowers include arrangements, basket designs, easel and flat sprays, and set pieces, such as wreaths, organization symbols, hearts, or crosses. Blooming and foliage plants as well as dish gardens are also typical sympathy expressions. A dish garden is a grouping of different types of plants potted in the same container. Flowers in water tubes, accessories, and bows are often added to decorate plants. The most popular expressions of sympathy vary from region to region. When sending sympathy flowers as a wire order to another area, check the selection guide to choose the most appropriate type.

CASKET SPRAYS

A casket spray is a floral arrangement that is placed on the top of a casket during a funeral service. A casket spray is ordered and sent by the immediate family members. The type of casket determines the size of the casket spray. Caskets are available as half couch and full couch.

A full couch is a casket with a one-piece lid, which may be closed or open. An open full couch has an inner lid on the right side. A full-couch casket spray is a large casket piece that is placed in the center of a closed full couch. A full-couch lid spray is a large casket piece placed in the center of the open lid of a full couch. The full-couch lid design is placed in a stand that displays the spray sideways or is attached to the wall by a bracket on the wall wide.

A half couch is a casket with a two-piece lid; the head of the half couch is open during the visitation services. A half-couch casket spray is a floral piece that is placed on the right side of a half couch. A half-couch casket spray should be at least a yard wide.

Half-Couch Casket Spray

The foundation for a casket spray is a casket saddle, a container with a rounded base, which fits the curving contours of a casket lid. Casket saddles are molded plastic and available in many sizes and shapes. The flowers and foliage should completely cover the saddle.

The shapes of a half-couch casket spray may be an oval, crescent, or triangular. These designs should be low to allow transporting by the funeral director. Script denoting the relationship of the deceased is often attached to the long streamer on the bow.

CASKET INSET PIECE

The family often orders a casket inset piece to coordinate with the colors and styles of the other family floral pieces. A casket inset piece is a small design displayed inside the casket lid. This design is traditionally sent from the younger family members—children or grandchildren. The casket inset piece may be designed like a corsage and placed on a satin pillow, heart, or cross. Some satin forms come with a floral foam mechanic attached to it. Other options are covering Styrofoam’ shapes (a cross or heart) with flowers by gluing or pinning. Another casket inset piece is a floral rosary, which may be used for the service of a devout Catholic. Rosary forms are available at the wholesale florist. The form has cone-shaped clamps to place around rose buds (or carnations). The floral rosary is draped and secured to the fabric in the lid of the casket by the funeral director.

ARRANGEMRNTS

Many sympathy tributes are arrangements designed in floral foam. The designs are typically oval, fan-shaped, or triangular. Symmetrical styles are the most common, but asymmetrical designs can also be tastefully created as a sympathy tribute.

The containers may be ceramic, plastic, papier-mâché, or baskets. Plastic containers with a handle are available and quite versatile. Papier-mâché containers come in various shapes and sizes and are made of a sturdy, molded, water-holding, paper-like material.

Many types of baskets are available and can be designed with a variety of design styles. A fireside basket is a curved, open basket with a handle A sympathy arrangement may be designed in this type of basket by wiring a small utility container (and foam) to the basket (like the cornucopia technique). The fireside basket may be designed in two ways, either as a centerpiece or a one-sided design. A centerpiece can be designed by placing the foam and container in the center of the basket. For a one-sided design, tip the basket forward and wire the utility container and foam to the front side of the basket near the handl Fireside baskets are often placed on the floor under or near the casket.

A floral designer must take care to design a sympathy tribute with sturdy mechanics. Floral foam should be securely taped to the container. For papier- mache containers, the tape should be stapled to the paper-like rim to secure it. Avoid filling containers with excess water or sending arrangements or easel sprays that are leaking water.
