Asparagus in Flower Arranging, Country Gardens Magazine

Artful Asparagus

I decided to repost this favorite project I created for Country Gardens. It's an idea that never grows old.. SO EASY to do!
I often say, "the arrangement is equally about the container!"

Asparagus is the vegetable of the season right now and it looks beautiful combined with flowers from your spring garden.

Wrap a runner band around a coffee size can. Cut asparagus stalk to 1" to 2" taller than the can. Place the stalks side by side standing straight up inside the rubber band. Tie with a ribbon to hide the rubber band. Add flowers.

VoilĂ  ... that was easy,... healthy fresh asparagus will last a week or longer (or when the flowers pass then you can cook the asparagus up)
