Meriel Bradley: What is the latest that is happening in real estate, we are here today with Dan Cooper. And now Dan whom I visiting today? Dan Cooper: You are going to visit with Elaine Martin who has a very great little shop in the Distillery District in Toronto it’s called the Vintage Gardener but what you really does is she knows how to stage homes with decorations and she really takes the spring, let’s say for example it’s spring time. So she’s going to talk to you how the theme or complete post for the spring season. Meriel Bradley: Love that subject matter, now you make sure you stay tune, you are watching Daily Web TV. The spring season is definitely a favorite and we are here today with Elaine Martin from Vintage Gardena and now Elaine what are you going to do today? Elaine Martin: We are going to start off right off the back with a really simple arrangement using potted bulbs and I’ve got some presents right here and you will see we have a problem. Meriel Bradley: That too big to go in that part. Elaine Martin: Right so we have to deal with that, so the first thing we do is we take the bulbs out of the plastic container to have less mess I do that right over top of the pot. I give the bottom in that pot a little of squeeze to loosen it up and I just pull the highest and right out and we will them to do that the really rope bound and so what we’re about to do is going to be helpful to the plant that once to have it root some tussled up a little bit. I’m going to pop this in here and we are going to reshape this a little bit and what kind about with the roots. Meriel Bradley: That just by squeezing? Elaine Martin: Just squeezing making it into a little bit of a cone then I’m going to pop this in and then I’m removing the soil at the top exposing the bulb which makes it look more like a flower arrangement and you know like a designer had done this. Meriel Bradley: Yes as go to day has that real design element. Elaine Martin: Yeah. Now this is great for things like home staging and really bringing that hopeful spring experience. Meriel Bradley: Exactly, exactly. Elaine Martin: To complete this one what we are doing is I’m removing the soil away and then I’m taking some moss which is moisten up then and I’m just going to tack it around and that gives it that finish look and in each flower arrangement using potted bulbs throughout the house we are going to have a moss theme with blue flowers. Meriel Bradley: Now what other ideas do you have with the moss? Elaine Martin: There is a magical idea; same I do pull a pot right working with the blue fasten, blue theme but this time trying to have a bit sparkle to the house using glass the way they did in the Victorian times. And what I’m going to do is take moss that moss red. Wrap it around the soil and slip it into this. Watch you have to be brave. Meriel Bradley: And let it go? Elaine Martin: Yeah, and then you just tack it all back in around and then you are going to rip some of that off and what happens is that this works very like a little green house. So now the bulbs is going to grow up magically hereby the time they’ll finish will be up about this tall and it is sort of unique it’s a unique little look. Meriel Bradley: Gorgeous. Now what is this here? Elaine Martin: Same I do for a that effect very much use this idea in the Victorian era to hasten the growth of something and that’s the close and it would it been use to put over a bulb or a little Furner a tropical plant to help it grow so it will be like that. Meriel Bradley: Beautiful. Elaine Martin: I think that’s really pretty on the desk so on dance desk that would be great. Meriel Bradley: I love all of this projects but what is this here? Elaine Martin: This is a bad bass it’s a really gravy one and it has a little elbow you would normally put a bud through there stem of the tulips or something but that’s we’re not going to do and set that here take the highest in instead of taking a whole thing out I’m just thinking an individual one pulling it right there. Then I’m going to wash the roots off, I’m going to take some moss and give it a little color that helps hold it up and I’m going to stick the roots in here and it’s like a bud boss use as a for single. So, you have to full to this one because they will think that you start with the above that wasn’t spreading up yet. Meriel Bradley: Right. Elaine Martin: Yeah and then the roots is grow all the way down into the bars with shading yeah. Meriel Bradley: I love all of this projects and I love the facts that you have that moss red going up so we really encapsulate that great theme to your house.
