Saved by the Bud
Saved by the Bud is for guys in trouble who would consider giving flowers to bale them out. It's funny and quite helpful for almost anyone. For example, it advises "Choose the flower, or flower combination, that suits the occasion. If you have to make a tough choice, err on the side of simplicity.... Never buy anything large enough to make you sweat carrying it in from the car. No one likes a sweaty guest. Okay, that's too severe and does not account for life's diversity. Let's say that few people like a sweaty guest."

In the demonstration video "Welcome to Buds in Motion!" Sally Ferguson, director of the Netherlands Flower Bulb Information Center/North America, shows "how easy it is to make a big splash with cut and potted flowers." Enjoy!
