Vanessa’s witty flower tips

Macclesfield Express - - WILDLIFE -

PREST­BURY Flower Club’s June demon­stra­tion, ‘any­thing will do’, was given by Vanessa Wel­lock from Ilk­ley.

Her ‘witty’ per­for­mance con­tained ad­vice on con­di­tion­ing flow­ers for ar­range­ments – cut­ting on wood stems not soft green for hy­drangeas and bud­dleias so they take up wa­ter.

Lesley Stafford, pro­gramme sec­re­tary, said: “Her work­load over the May bank hol­i­day was a breath­tak­ing 15 wed­dings but the brides were right to choose her as the roses she brought and dis­played were amaz­ing.

“And noth­ing was thrown away, there must be a flo­ral re­cy­cle in there some­where.”

Vanessa judged the Jessie Kite pe­tite award for ar­range­ments within a nine inch cube.

The win­ner, with ‘Pot of Gold’ was Mar­garet De­laney.

The next ses­sion is David Robert­son’s ‘The Glory of Sum­mer’ on Wed­nes­day, July 1.
