John,  the one box we have is made of plywood and has holes to hold a set of identical small glass jars/vases. The neck of each vase is fairly small as I recall, so it holds a single flower well without the falls touching.

If you get the right size PVC pipe you can drill holes to match the external diameter and use that for each "vase" with a cap on each. I use a similar setup with longer pipes (12") to hold stalks for transport...

Subject: [iris-photos] SHOW: English Boxes


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.
