A beautiful bouquet exudes good mood. It looks even better if you bind the bouquet yourself. If you have already laid the foundation for a wildflower meadow in the spring by applying a seed mixture, you can even tie a colorful bouquet in the summer. We'll show you how it's done.
Freshly picked are marigolds, zinnias, phloxes, daisies, cornflowers, bluebells and some cut green for binding a bouquet of flowers. Before binding to the bouquet, the stems are cut with a sharp knife and any leaves that would otherwise be in the vase water are removed.
How to tie a bouquet of flowers
Always put flower stems in the same direction
Ringel and cornflowers form the beginning. Hold each new flower at the bottom and place it diagonally on the already existing bouquet. The flower stems should always be in the same direction. This keeps the flowers almost by itself and a good supply of water in the vase is thus guaranteed later. Add all the other ingredients in this way, always turning the bouquet a little bit further. Finally, check that the bouquet has a harmonious shape.

When the bouquet is ready, it is tied tightly with a 20 to 30 centimeter long bast band. Use a pair of sharp scissors to shorten the stems to a uniform length so that they stand well in the vase.
