Tulipina Rouge Bouquet

You've seen, probably, a half dozen cards on flowers that were created by the talented Kiana Underwood, of Tulipina Design. And if you've seen them, then you know that the designs I feature from her are ALWAYS decorative florals. Well, this is the FIRST Tulipina Design photo that is of a bridal bouquet. Go ahead and check, see if I'm lying. You can see all my floral cards here.
Even Underwood, who isn't a fan of red florals herself, couldn't stop gushing over this epic bridal bouquet! And it really is stunning.
If you know me, then you know WHY this design is so spectacular. It's all in the visual texture that I talk about all of the time. Don't just throw red flowers together. You want dimension and gorgeous texture. That means choosing floral varieties that make your eye work, to notice all the details. The shapes, the composition... The color is important too because you want to mix other reddish (and non-red) florals in the mix to make a red bouquet pop.
If it was just one shade of red or one style of flower it would be very one-dimensional and boring. Plus, it'd get lost in the photos. What you see here is compelling for all the reasons I mentioned in the aforementioned paragraph.
Take your time and really think about your bridal flowers. Don't rush through it. Get the most out of the money you're spending by truly understanding the flowers that are going into your wedding design. The colors. The textures. The mixes. All of it.
Always feel free to ask me questions and give your thoughts too!

Kỹ thuật trồng và chăm sóc dưa lưới bằng đất
Sau khi đã hạt giống đã phát triển lên 2 lá thật, bạn đưa bầu ươm xuống đất. Nếu dùng bầu ươm tự làm bằng bịch nilong thì bạn nhớ cắt bỏ bịch để rễ phát triển. Nếu dùng viên nén xơ dừa thì bạn bỏ qua thao tác này vì vỏ viên nén sẽ tan trong đất và cung cấp dinh dưỡng cho cây. Các thao tác phải thật nhẹ nhàng để tránh làm đứt rễ. Trồng cây dưa lưới vào đất xong bạn dùng tay nén chặt gốc cây để cố định cây. Sau đó tưới đẫm nước. Nếu bạn trồng ngoài đất, hãy đảm bảo mật độ gieo trồng. Cây cách cây 0,5m, hàng cách hàng từ 1,8 đến 2m để cây có không gian phát triển. Để hạn chế cỏ dại bạn nên dùng màng phủ nilong để phủ kín đất. Việc trồng cây nên được tiến hành vào buổi sáng sớm, khi chiều mát hoặc vào những ngày mát mẻ. Chăm sóc Mỗi ngày bạn tưới nước cho dưa lưới 2 lần. Khi cây được 3 lá thật bạn hãy bón phân đạm cho cây. Pha 1/3 chén phân đạm với 7 – 8 lít nước rồi cách ngày lại tưới cho cây. Bấm ngọn cây ngay khi cây được 5 – 6 lá và khi cây được 15 – 16 lá. Việc bấm ngọn giúp cây phát triển những nhánh nhỏ và tập trung dinh dưỡng nuôi hoa quả. Tiếp tục bón phân cho cây khi cây chuẩn bị ra hoa và kết quả. Bạn dùng thêm phân NPK để bón cho cây. Khi cây đậu trái non hãy tăng phân lân lên. Bạn hãy chủ động thụ phấn cho cây nếu không có ong bướm hỗ trợ. Việc thụ phấn nên tiến hành vào buổi sáng sớm (trước 8h sáng). Sau khi thụ phấn, bạn dùng túi buộc lại để đề phòng ong châm. Giai đoạn nuôi quả, bạn hãy chăm sóc thật kỹ. Mỗi dây dưa bạn chỉ để lại 1 đến 2 quả và cần 25 lá nuôi quả, còn lại hãy ngắt bỏ. Bạn nên ngắt phần ngọn và những lá già úa và cả những nhánh phụ. Nếu trồng dưa lưới tại nhà bạn nên là giàn cho cây. Khi cây được 5 – 6 lá thật, bạn hãy làm giàn chắc chắn cho dây leo lên. Nếu nhà có ban công, bạn có thể tận dụng hàng rào ban công để dây lên lên đó. Việc này ảnh hưởng đến năng suất dưa bạn trồng nên đừng làm qua loa nhé. Nguồn : avi.org.vn
