Welcome to Flower Power Friday!!
If you love flowers then you have certainly come to the right place. EACH FRIDAY — we are going to be releasing a new how-to floral video as part of what we are calling FLOWER POWER FRIDAY!
Let’s face it who doesn’t love flowers?! I remember in one of my very first apartments, I could barely afford a decent piece of furniture, but each Saturday I would purchase a fresh bouquet of flowers to bring home. Honestly, I remember the flowers made me feel brighter and just in a sunny mood. I loved the way they smelled and the color they added to my space.
In this very first video in what will be a 20-part video series with yours truly and master florist Kenji Takenaka, owner and Master Florist of Noir Hanna International, a boutique floral company based in New York City we will be teaching you how to make Window Sill Flower Plants.
How to Make Window Sill Flower Plants
Whether you live in the city or the suburbs and even the country, window sills are a wonder place to place flowers.
Tip 1: In creating a window sill flower plant, first pick the flower you want to plant. Be sure to consider where the pot will sit. If your window gets a lot of sun, be sure to get a flower that likes the light. Perennials are a great choice because they will bloom year after year. You might also consider how the color of the flower will match your house.
Tip 2: Choose a pot that has enough room for your flowers to grow, and make sure the pot has holes in the bottom to allow excess water to drain. Add some potting soil to your pot, but leave enough room to put the flower completely inside. Take the flower from the container it came in and loosen the soil around the roots.
Tip 3: Finally, put the flower in the pot so that the top of the root ball is about an inch below the rim. Add more soil to cover the roots completely and then water it well. You can place the flower pots on your window sill, or if you have a window box, just put them inside. This is a great alternative to planting the flowers in the window box because it’s much easier to change the soil.
