Joanne wants me to build some English Boxes for our show this
Saturday. The construction is not very difficult, but I have some
questions that are not really answered by the Judges Handbook.
Do the blooms rest on the top of the English box or are they held
above the surface. (The JH says "English Boxes are designed as a
means of displaying collections of single flowers without stem,
foliage or the presence of buds.")
So if they are to be held above the surface (which makes sense so
that the falls are displayed naturally) what do the stems typically
sit in? Is there water in what they sit in?
Any help (or designs if you have them) will be greatly appreciated.
