I always get excited about this time of year when sitting outdoors becomes an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon, and wild flowers start to appear in the garden. As garden flowers make for such a nice display, it would seem a shame not to make the most of them. Decorating with flowers can be an effective and inexpensive way to offer an additional burst of life, colour and scent into a room. I have put together a few examples of imaginative ways to display your garden plants and flowers, even if only a single stem!
The Bowl Shelf, a new component of the innovative String shelving series, is made of plastic with three compartments and is perfect for displaying and growing plants indoors!
The Bowl Shelf, along with other ‘String’ components can be found at www.skandium.com, at £90 per unit.
This charming Hanging Blume Tube by Rowen & Wren is a great way to make an attractive flower display with a single stem.
Available at www.notonthehighstreet.com, at £14 for a set of two.
Here is another simple way to display a single flower. Two Vintage Style Mini Bottles by The Flower Studio, from www.notonthehighstreet, £8.99.
The Woolly Pocket company do a great range of breathable table and wall planters, which are suitable for indoors and available in a variety of colours.

Woolly Pocket’s breathable wall planters are particularly fun, and allow you to create indoor living plant walls. I recommend you take a look at their online inspiration gallery, where they showcase many inventive ways to have indoor wall gardens.

This quirky, unconventional Light bulb Vase by London Garden Trading makes for a striking flower display, from www.notonthehighstreet.com, £12.95.
These Two Metallic Plant Pots from Rocket St George would be a stylish way to display your garden plants. Available at www.rockettstgeorge.co.uk, £45 for a set of two.
So make the most of this spring, and bring the outside in.
