Rosie Holt’s top tips for creating a winter flower arrangement:

  • Start with miscellaneous foliage from the garden. Delicate leaves work really well, but anything that will add extra texture is perfect.
  • Choose two hero flowers (Rosie used parrot tulips and protea) and compliment with a few other smaller flowers.
  • Make sure the bottoms of the stems are naked before putting them in the vase to prevent bacteria forming in the water.
  • Before you start your arrangement, place some chicken wire (or similar) in the vase to use as a mould to hold your foliage in place.
