When you think of cut flowers, many people will picture colourful, summer blooming plants like dahlias and peonies, but some of the prettiest and earliest flowers to emerge can be used too.

Bring the magic of snowdrops inside, by picking a few to display in a vase. Keep things as simple as possible, combining the blooms with ivy or other small-leaved evergreens.

A clear, clean jam jar makes a great vase if you don’t have one that’s small enough to hold the dainty flowers. Keep them on a windowsill so they catch plenty of light.

Pick enough snowdrop blooms and ivy sprigs to fill out the container you're using. Try to use different lengths of blooms to give the vase some height.

Fill the vase with water and place it in a bright spot to be enjoyed.
