In the market, in the gardens, and even in grocery stores, pots of temptingly brightly colored spring blossoms are everywhere now to be bought. Just because the wonderful word “springtime” can only be read in the calendar on March 22nd, you should grab it! Because it will take a while for daffodils, tulips, hyacinths, lilies of the valley, lilacs and all the other favorite flowers of the most beautiful season to bloom in your own garden. Fortunately, the range of pre-grown plants is very large – so you could spread the spring mood on the terrace and balcony or in the little garden in front of your front door. So you will not only please yourself, but also everyone else who takes a look at it as you walk by!
When buying onion or other spring flowers, always make sure that they still have many closed buds so that they will bloom for as long as possible.
You could put the plants in common containers such as terracotta boxes, ceramic pots and amphorae, or you could go to the flea market to find unusual and nostalgic objects that can be converted into plant containers, such as pretty tin cans, small zinc containers, old-fashioned chamber pots, buckets or wash bowls. If possible, you should only make a few holes in the bottom of the container so that the irrigation or rainwater can drain off after a heavy shower.
Hundreds of years ago onion flowers cost a fortune. Back then it would have been unthinkable to just throw them away after flowering. Today it is customary to treat plants like disposable items, which is a shame, because there is no reason to carelessly dispose of spring flowers after they have bloomed. It’s so easy to let them live on by planting them in a garden and letting them run wild, so to speak. When the next spring comes, they will delight you, your friends and family again with their beautiful flowers.
Small wreaths of fresh green leaves and flowers in strong or delicate colors are a delightful decoration for the breakfast or coffee table. This will inspire your guests and ensure a good mood in the room. You should choose the flowers to match the dishes, for example pink daisies (bellis) with a pink service or blue hyacinths and forget-me-nots with blue-patterned china. If yellow is a better match, there are yellow tulips, primroses, or daffodils to choose from. Ivy leaves are ideal as a green accessory. Spring invites you to start over and is the best time to try something new. Why not with flower decorations you put together yourself in your home ?! Let yourself be inspired by our picture gallery!
