From the Farmer
Calla curve: When cut, your callas may have a tendency to curve. Patrick Zweifel says this is normal and can be minimized by storing the cut flowers (heads down) in a box overnight. Also, once they are cut and placed in a
vase, leave the curved flowers toward the container’s outside rim. The callas will naturally straighten up toward the center.
NOTE: Each Sunday of this year, I will post my photographs, “recipe” and tip for that week’s floral arrangement, created for my new book, Slow Flowers. Enjoy the floral journey through 52 weeks of the year~
