Making bouquets is also good for the plant. Here is why:
- removing flowers encourages more flowers.
- cutting flowers encourages a closer look - you might even find disease or insect issues earlier than if you hadn't been in search for bouquet participants.
- putting flowers together in a vase makes it easy to determine which plants should be neighbors in the garden.
- the more bouquets you make, the better you'll get at it and the more enjoyment it will give you.
