Wiring Succulents For Wedding Bouquets Made Easy
Wiring succulents properly is essential if you are planning to include them in a wedding bouquet or other type of floral arrangement.
If you have never used succulents as cut flowers before, then you’ll want to check out this step by step guide by garden photojournalist Debra Lee Baldwin, the author of “Succulents Simplified.”
It takes you by the hand and shows you a simple technique you can use to wire succulents and prepare them for use.
Even if you’ve never worked with succulents before, this short video will get you up and running quickly. It also addresses some of the questions that you might have about working with succulents.
It’s a video I think you are going to like and put to use, especially if you are the hands-on type. Watch it and see.
I’m hoping this video was helpful. Keep in mind that this method of wiring succulents is not the only way that’ll work.
If the succulent you are using is heavy and needs more support, you could run a heavier gauge wire up the center of the stem into the head itself about a 1/3 of the way, then cross-wire them and tape them to a wooden pick or hyacinth stake.
Or use an artificial flower stem instead if you want something bendable. Check out this video for more wiring tips.
In the video, succulent plants are used. A great selection of varieties and sizes can be found at Amazon.
If you only need a few succulents, I suggest checking with a local florist, garden center or nursery in your area. Always my preferred choice!
At this point, I’d better say hello. My name is Greg Johnson, owner of Greenfield Flower Shop, and the person responsible for this website.
I’m here just to share some truly helpful information with you. That’s it. That’s the only reason I’m here now.
There’s a big ol’ “but” though…
So look, before we proceed, a confession is in order. To be perfectly honest, I really created this website for me. I love floral design tutorials videos (like the wiring succulents how-to video you just got done viewing), and I honestly just wanted a place where I could continue to check out all of my favorites under one roof.
I also believe that opportunities abound online, which is another motivating factor in my decision to create this site. Why lie?
Hopefully, you won’t hold it against me if I’m able to generate a little side income from sponsorships and/or product recommendations.
I’m a pretty straightforward person if you couldn’t tell. But make no mistake… I’m not here to sell anything. If something being offered here appeals to you, that’s fantastic! If that’s not the case, I certainly won’t hold it against you. It’s just really great to have you here.
I just want you and I to be able to check out some cool and informative floral videos together!
So that’s why FlowersFloralFlorist exists. It’s basically just a place for people who care about flowers and plants to get together and watch some cool videos. Sound good? Great! It’d be great to have you over again sometime.
