I wanted to try my hand at an all green arrangement, and all green I did! I was browsing through NY Topiary on 28th St and fell for Milton’s unique collection of ferns. I picked up seven different varieties and went home and started arranging away. I had so much fun layering the different shades of green and really began to see that even in a single pot there are different shades and stages of growth. From the ruffled edges of the Ruffle Fern to the variegated white and green of the Silver Ribbon Fern, there is so much to admire. The heartier varieties have held up beautifully in the oasis and my green arrangement is gracing our entry, perfect for these gloomy March days.

I just have to keep them alive in my dry New York apartment.

    Beth,

    You won’t believe this!! I just did a wedding last weekend whose theme was “a chic woodland fantasy.” The cake had a plethora of ferns, fritillaria, incl fiddle heads and wonderful insects. I will send u the pics as soon as I have them. Right now I only have the ones that document the making of the cake.

    All the best,

    Charlotte
