Garden Trends

Every year a new trend comes out that is a little bit different, a little bit inventive that people suddenly go crazy over and “have to have”, and next thing you know it’s everywhere.

Way, way back it was garden gnomes. More recently it was iridescent glass insects that you skewered into the ground. I try not to get caught up in that stuff since I much prefer a plant to be the eye catcher in a garden.

However at Canada Blooms this year I saw a trend that I may just jump on the bandwagon for.

What intrigued me was this variety of stand-alone vases that help showcase individual cut flowers as opposed to big bundles. Some of these vases were tall columns with individual test tube size glasses at different gradations of height while others were long and horizontal cylinders in different lengths.

What a brilliant idea for flowers like Calla Lilies and Gerbera Daisies that don’t need fillers like ferns or baby’s breath because they are so beautiful all on their own. With their contemporary glass cuts you could choose to add rocks, gels and sands for even more interesting looks.

I haven’t jumped yet but these vases look like they could be around for a long time.
