HAMDEN, Conn. (WTNH) —  This morning, we are Cruisin’ Connecticut to Hamden, home of The Garden House. We’re learning the dos and don’ts of floral arrangements.

The shop is a place for customers to experience a “vibe” of outdoor living… inside. Hence “Garden House.”

Succulent plants are trendy right now, as they’re easy to care for. You only have to water them every few weeks, and you can build a creative terrarium for the plants.

With Connecticut in bloom… here are a few tips to keep your floral arrangements healthy and vibrant:

  • Do change your floral arrangement water every other day
  • Do cut the stems at an angle so they can “drink”
  • Do not put pennies, vodka or other bizarre oddities in the water
  • Do not put ice cubes inside of your orchid plants – just use an equivalent amount of water

The Garden House offers custom arrangements, wedding flowers, flowers for events, and offers other gifts inside of their store. Visit The Garden House: 2468 Whitney Ave. Hamden, CT. 06518
