It is important that you follow the instructions that are printed on the Pdf and first score the card before you cut it. (Scoring is pressing a dull edge of a knife, like the back of a butter knife, along the line where the card will be folded. The score line bruises the paper so it will easily fold on that line.)
A scored line will give a neat clean fold.
Lily of the Valley are a low to the ground fast spreading perennial. I have a patch in the corner of my yard and keep my eye on it so it doesn't spread into the rest of my garden.
Since I love having it in the house I find that if I pull up every second plant when they bloom I have enough flowers to make arrangements with and I keep the bed in check so it doesn't get out of hand. While I love the scent I find it too overpowering to have on my bedside table but it is just perfect to have in the bathroom.
I also love putting an arrangement of Lily of the Valley in the hallway as the scent wafts through the house and reminds me that spring is now arrived.
