Description
 

The Geranium can be made for use in a variety of settings. for example, if you Geranium is being used in a wreath or swag, it is usually made using only the wires from the bud to form a short stem so the need for wrapping the stem with floral tape is eliminated. However, for bouquets, arrangements, a pot of Geraniums or a single bloom, a longer stem is necessary. Although there is a little added work involved, stemmed Geraniums feature leaves which are as showy as the bloom itself. This pattern contains patterns and detailed instructions to make

  • a bud (2 petals)
  • a single blossom (1-3 buds)
  • a sprig (4-9 buds)
  • full blooms with or without stems and leaves

Supply List for Blooms
