As our design staff works on custom pots and boxes for our customers, it’s sometimes hard to choose from the myriad of materials available. Today’s post shows just a few of the options available for supplies and styles. It’s just a taste of what you can create to decorate your porches, decks and the outside of your home.
Supplies we have available in the store: Oasis blocks to keep cut greens fresh; twigs in red, white, or natural golden colors; silk holly, berry sprays, frosted twigs and flowers; living topiary, small evergreens, and hellebores; pinecones, lights and artificial fruit; cut greens, foliage sprays, and birch poles; wire, floral tape and other materials to hold your creations in their containers despite the Cape Cod winter sea breeze.
Supplies that are likely to be available on your property: cut greens such as Leyland Cypress or Eastern red cedar; lichen-covered branches; shells you’ve gathered at the beach over the summer; flower pots or metal watering cans.
Spray finished cut arrangements with Wiltpruf to help the greens stay fresh into January. Water your oasis once a week if it doesn’t rain.
