MAKE IT YOURSELF: How to create a spring arrangement


By Spalding Today Columnist


The staff at Flowers 'n' Things in Red Lion Street, Spalding, show us how to use tulips to make a lovely display in this month's column:

This month we have decided to show you how to create a contemporary floral display to brighten your home.

All you need to get going is a clear glass bowl, some tulips, some willow (we’ve used pussy willow), and a drop of water – it couldn’t be easier!

Arrange your tulips and willow inside the bowl.

Once you've finished, sit back and enjoy your creation.
