1960s 1970s inspired bouquet

Posted: 11/03/2016 at 09:51

I'm looking for some suggestions for flowers that were popular in the 60s and 70s. I have had freesias and carnations suggested. Not to worried about the colour at this stage, but anything that goes with emerald green would be a bonus.  Any other thoughts?

Thanks

I use those plastic type green houses and get good results, just make sure it's secure. They have a tendancy to fly off.

Hi Edd, the sides were a 6ft pallet cut cut in half and the rest of it is held together with screws. The plastic roof and sides are attached by nails not hammered in flush but bent over.

That's tough not being able to get on with what you want too Gardengirl, I hope your energy comes back to you. Have you started sowing seeds yet? I haven't yet, maybe towards the end of this month

Thanks, it's huge but I'm hoping it's going to full of plants this year  and is always good to have some extra space. Sorry to hear that you've not been well, you always sound so busy and full of energy. That's a job that can wait anyway.

Not sure what OH will do with, I did ask him but he just said burn them! He likes bonfires.  Hope you feel better soon

Will this plant survive ?
