Video How-To: Make the ultimate hand-tied bouquet

Wave goodbye to sorry-looking bunches of flowers wrapped in cellophane - it's time to get all tied up and create the ultimate bouquet!

In the second of our how-to flower arranging videos (you can catch the first one here), we tackle creating the perfect hand-tied bouquet. The great thing about hand-tied bouquets is that your arrangement is held together with rustic string, so you never run the risk of your creation coming undone. Perfect as a present, for a special occasion such as a wedding, or simply to bring some spring colours to your own home, our simple step-by-step video will help give your flowers a professional-looking florist touch every time.

Never tried hand-tying before? The hardest part is stopping your flowers from slipping as you turn the stems to create the circle base. If this is your first time, why not try selecting flowers with fine stems which still have a bright and beautiful flower, such as roses or hydrangeas. This way you'll find the bouquet is much easier to handle.

So why not get started? Choose a couple of your favourite flowers, and press play:
