This one here is an old greed bottle that was given to me. All I used to set it off was 2 solid green Hosta leaves and one deep blue Delphinium spire. The sunlight playing off the bottle add an extra dimension to arrangement.

This ones a simple grey vase I picked up. Its terracotta so it wouldn't be waterproof but would be great for dried flowers!

If you start them now they should be flowering in August. Thats how it went for me last year which was my first year growing them, but of course my soil isn't very good and last year was an awful summer. So they very well might grow and bloom faster for you this year!
