In the next few weeks I will show you a series of videos about flowers and flower arranging.
In this first video, Floral Stylist and Interior Designer Nico de Swert demonstrates how to care for your flowers and make the best of your flower arrangements.
We all have different tastes and the kind of flowers that are available to us vary depending on season and where we live - but I felt that we can always learn something from people who work with flowers every day.
It is the same advice that applies whether you buy your flowers from the florist shop, farmers market or you have picked in your own garden - you want to look after them the best you can and make the flowers last as long as possible in the arrangement.
Here are some more Flower Arranging Tips.
