Favourite flower: Narcissus!
“I think the narcissus is such a happy, unique flower” says floral stylist Elize Eveleens. “Narcissus are not available all year round and hopefully it will stay that way. When I see my first narcissus, it makes me very happy. I also love the unique shape of the flowers and the scent – which is less well-known.”
– Store narcissus in a cool dry place (preferably in cold storage at 2C). Put them upright to prevent the stems from bending.
– The stems of the narcissus naturally produce slime, which may affect other flowers. Read more about how to use narcissus in a spring bouquet with no problems.
