Have you ever wondered how Gerberas stay up straight in a bouquet? We have a secret and it’s called “Wiring and Taping”.

Step 1- You will need:

  1. wire
  2. floral tape
  3. shears
  4. gerbera

Step 2- Poke the wire a tad at the base of the flower and wrap the wire around the stem.

Step 3- Wrap the stem and wire with floral tape.

Step 4- Bend the flower’s stem to either straighten it or give it a curve to accommodate for your arrangement.

Pretty easy!

Have you tried this yourself? Let’s us know!

Have fun playing with flowers 🙂
