Wired Wood Picks
Wood Picks are an essential aid to the floral designer with a multitude of uses. I
use wood picks to cluster grasses for a single insertion into floral foam. If I am
working with a very thick stem such as a Bird of Paradise and limited foam space I will
attach two wood picks to give greater stability to the insertion. Wood picks can be used
to secure a bow in an arrangement and are great for securing fruits, vegetables, pine
cones and pods in a floral design.

Crowning Glory is like a hand lotion for flowers. It helps to seal the surface of
the blossoms and leaves of cut flowers, thus slowing the transpiration and water loss of
the flowers. Crowning Glory is excellent for use on corsages and wedding
flowers. It will also help to prolong the life of vase flowers. To use, you
simple spray a fine mist of Crowning Glory on your arrangement or corsage. Allow the
flowers to dry at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes.
Fresh Flower Food / Preservative
This 10 ounce tub will provide you with enough preservative / food for 30 quarts of
preservative - water solution or approximately 24 vase arrangements of fresh flowers. A
good Floral Preservative / Food is essential for maximizing the vase life of arranged
flowers. There are three primary ingredients in floral food / preservatives which
work in harmony to extend the vase life of cut flowers. The primary ingredients
include a sugar which provides nourishment for the cut flowers, a biocide which
inhibits the growth of fungi and bacteria, and an acidifier, which lowers the pH of
the water. Review our pages on Flower Care & Handling
for additional information.

We jokingly call Waterproof Tape the "Duct Tape" of floral design. It is
used to secure floral foam into a container or to create a "grid" on a floral
vase. Waterproof tape is a grand design material. It is very strong and when
affixed to a clean dry surface holds tightly even when submerged in water.
price, $4.50 single roll
These water tubes taper to a pointed and barbed end. I often use them for
short-stemmed blossoms like cymbidium orchids, setting the water tube into the floral foam
with the other flowers in a design. You can tape the tube to a dowel or plant stake
and create an extender for short stemmed flowers. To add delicate blossoms like
violets to a wired and taped bridal bouquet, I insert the blossoms into a water
tube, then wire & tape the water tube and add it to the bouquet.

Commonly called "wet foam", floral foam is the primary material for making
modern floral designs. Floral foam is designed to absorb and hold water in it's capillary
structure. Flower stems properly inserted into floral foam will be held in place and
can draw water up into the flower stem from the floral foam. Before designing an
arrangement, floral foam should be allowed to soak in a solution of water and floral
preservative / food. Each brick is 9"x4"x3".
