Students will be able to identify and value the importance of protecting cut-flowers from spoilage.

The tips of your fingers and finger tips contain oil depositories and in contact with pastel coloured or white cut-flowers, the browning process on the petals will start automatically which in due course means the cut-flower is infected and the aging process is now accelerated.

Prevention is better than cure as it is said, so the prevention here is wearing of gloves when it comes to handling pastel and white cut-flowers.

TIP - Make sure your hands are dry before wear, as it makes applying on the gloves easier.

Whatever your preference is Gloss or Mat results on your foliage, they both look blooming fabulous.


Not all foliage does well under spray, especially grey coloured foliage. Green and burgundy coloured foliage performs the best under leaf spray application.


I will recommend the best foliage that performs best with leaf shine spray, that you should consider when wiring your floral buttonhole.

Foliage

* Camellia

* Little Gem Magnolia

* Viburnum

* King Protea & Banksia


P.s. Grey coloured foliage such as Eucalyptus, Lambs Tongue and Dusty Miller are foliage's to avoid leaf shine spray.

+ DIY Water Crystals

Water damage when it comes to cut-flowers can be costly when your working with premium cut-flowers.

Accidents do happen a lot when your flower arranging and the hazards surround you without fail.

Especially when it comes to electricity and water, they certainly don't mix and the outcome can be fatal.


Prevention is certainly better than a cure & that's why water crystals are making a big impact in the florist workshops.

Fill up your floral vases with water crystals to prevent accidental damage to your cut-flowers & to keep harm at arm's length.

P.s. Don't need to worry about changing the floral vase water everyday as water crystals keep for 1 week plus, providing the stems of your cut-flowers are leaf free and clean.

Click on the DIY Water Crystals workshop video to learn how.

+ Introducing the Male Cut-flowers
1 lecture 03:14

Male Cut-flowers come from Bulbs, Tubers, Corms & Rhizomes (refer to photos)

The straight across cut on the stem of the cut-flower i refer to as Male cut-flowers wear 'Sneakers' (Trainers).

Male cut-flowers like to drink their water slowly compared to female cut-flowers the diagonal cut

'Slip on the heels' as i refer to.


Q - Why do male cut-flowers like to drink slowly?

A - Male cut-flowers have enough water depositories in their stems, so if you cut a male cut-flower

      diagonally, you will be forcing the male cut-flower to drink faster than required and that the reason

      why Mr Tulip and Mr Iris droop at the side of a floral vase.

      Slipping on heels on male cut-flowers forces the cut-flowers to become drunk and it accelerates the aging

      process of the cut-flowers.

Below is the list of Male Cut-flowers - “Slip on the sneakers & no hairy legs in the vase” (no leaves)

* Mr Hyacinth

* Mr Tulip

* Mr Freesia

* Mr Gladioli

* Mr Iris

* Mr Cymbidium Orchid

* Mr Dahlia

* Mr Dendrobium Orchid

* Mr Daffodil

* Mr Lily of the Valley

Male Cut-flowers wear SNEAKERS!
