Combine autumn berries and flowers

Autumn is known for its beautiful palette of colors and abundance of fall berries. As summer turns to autumn, trees and shrubs undergo a metamorphosis that transforms the landscape into a vibrant and warm scene.

The autumn colors in nature are breathtaking and diverse. Leaves on trees and shrubs change from their usual green hues to a wealth of warm and vibrant colors, such as red, orange, yellow and deep red. This change is caused by the decrease in chlorophyll in the leaves, revealing other pigments such as anthocyanins and carotenoids. The result is a picturesque landscape that seems to reveal new shades every day.

Autumn is a time of abundance of flowers and berries in beautiful colors, the season invites you to make beautiful bouquets or a vase with a few berry branches and oak leaves, with which you can make the atmosphere in the house cozy and warm. It is a time when nature displays its artistic skills in color and life before the winter calm sets in.

Autumn, when berries and flowers meet in a dance of color, to paint the world with a masterpiece of seasonal splendor.”

As far as I’m concerned, a flower that really radiates summer, long stems with colorful waving flower clusters. The lupine announces summer with its cheerful inflorescence in early summer.
A summer bouquet with Lupine in it always looks cheerful, but it is a pity that the Lupine does not last very long in the vase.

Bouquet with Hydrangea flowers in it.

A summery hydrangea bouquet in your home will brighten up your interior. With these beautiful large round flowers in lush colors, these flowers bring a touch of elegance and charm to your home. Whether you are an avid gardener who grows them yourself or just want to enjoy their beauty in a vase, in this blog we will discuss everything you need to know about caring for a bouquet of hydrangeas, the different varieties, colors and types of flowers, and how to keep them fresh for a long time.

Caring for a bouquet with hydrangea:

When you receive or make a bouquet of hydrangeas, it is important to give them proper care to maintain their freshness and beauty. Here are some tips to get you started:

  • Cut the stems at an angle: Before you place the hydrangeas in a vase, cut the stems at an angle of 45 degrees. This increases the surface area for water absorption.
  • Remove Excess Foliage: Remove any leaves that would become submerged. This prevents them from rotting and affecting the water quality.
  • Place in clean water: Fill the vase with clean water and place the hydrangeas in it. Top up the water after a few days or change the water if it becomes cloudy. When you change the water, also cut the Hydrangea at an angle again.
  • Add cut flower food: This will help keep the flowers fresh longer and keep the water clean.
  • Hydrangeas thrive best in a cool environment. Avoid direct sunlight and place them in a cool place in the house.

Hydrangeas from your own garden:

If you have a Hydrangea plant in your garden, you can make a bouquet with your home-grown flowers. Hydrangea plants often give a lot of flowers, so cutting a few flowers for the vase is usually not a big loss in the garden. Hydrangea plants thrive in most temperate climates and don’t require too much special care. Here are some important aspects to consider when growing hydrangeas:

Choose the right variety: There are several varieties of hydrangeas, such as the popular Hydrangea macrophylla, Hydrangea paniculata, and Hydrangea arborescens. Research which species thrive best in your garden and soil type. Plant in the right spot: Hydrangeas thrive in partial shade or shady environments. Provide well-drained soil with adequate moisture. Water regularly: Hydrangeas like moist soil, so be sure to water them regularly,

Blog hortensia in een boeket 1,0

Be careful if you cut a few Hydrangea flowers for the vase. Don’t do this too quickly!

Wait until the flowers feel firm, as long as the petals are soft you cannot use the Hydrangea flowers for the vase yet. Wait until the flower is firm and colored, now is the time to cut a few for the vase. Tender flowers are not ripe enough for a vase and will droop quickly because they need more water than they can drink.

Preferably pick the hydrangeas early in the morning or late in the evening when the temperature is cooler

Using rainwater in the garden: Nutritious and Sustainable

In our pursuit of sustainability and reducing our water consumption, using rainwater in the garden is a smart and environmentally friendly choice. Instead of letting the precious rainwater flow directly to the sewer, we can collect it in a rain barrel and use this nutritious water to care for our plants. Plants in your garden do well on collected rainwater, including the Hydrangea.

Why use rainwater in the garden?

Rainwater is a natural source that is free of chemicals such as chlorine and fluoride, which are often present in tap water. This makes it ideal for watering plants. In addition, rainwater contains nutrients, such as nitrogen, oxygen and minerals, that help plants thrive and grow. By using rainwater, you can therefore create a healthier and more resilient garden.

Using rainwater in the garden is a smart and sustainable choice. Collecting rainwater in a rain barrel and using it to tend your plants offers benefits for both you and the environment.
