Although invented in Japan for use in Ikebana arrangements, you do not need to know Ikebana in order to use a kenzan. These wonderful, weighted pins will hold your stems in place, meaning anything you have at home that will hold water can be used as a 'vase'!
Ever wondered how to create those lovely arrangements you see flowing impossibly out of a low dish, or how to get your stems to stay upright in a vase that doesn't hold them properly? Well, time to meet our secret tool - the kenzan.
They are very user friendly and are designed in Australia to last a lifetime without rusting or wearing out. Use our kenzans at home with any cuttings you have in your garden (or neighbourhood!).
They would be suitable for softer/smaller stemmed flowers like poppies, bluebells, hellebores, garden roses, geraniums, narcissus (daffodils, jonquils), kangaroo paw, tulips, etc.
The small size kenzans are 5cm in diameter.
