A Sustainable Easter Bouquet Of Fresh Seasonal Spring Flowers

Summary

Fierceblooms discusses the inspiration for the sustainable mechanics in this Easter bouquet using some fresh Spring flowers grown in her canalside cutting garden.
Easter Bouquet
The Spring garden provided the inspiration for sustainable mechanics I used in this Easter bouquet.

I need no alarm now we are in British summer time. The dawn chorus is enough to wake me. Miniature wrens with the loudest songs of all join in my daily chorus.

The duck is still hanging on in there, literally, on the 4th floor of the horse Chestnut. The expectant father is patrolling on the stretch of canal outsider our kitchen window. Nesting it appears is sometimes a perilous pastime.

Their beautiful nesting songs and the ducks have me thinking.

There’s quite a few conversations right now about sustainable flowers. Quite a few discussions on “green washing”, that activity where businesses appear to be environmentally friendly as frankly it sells more.

There is here though, in the quacks and chirping of our canalside cutting garden, a fierce heartfelt desire for authentic sustainability. I want each of my wild garden style floral designs to be at the very least reusable, if not completely biodegradable. No chemicals or wire, just eco friendly mechanics that anyone can feel happy to compost.

That’s where the idea for the nest came from. Those beautifully crafted, woven homes, places of shelter and safety for the birds that create them. Our Easter bouquets are made using that inspiration, and only locally grown British flowers.

About

A 19th century historic wharf and Cheshire canalside cutting garden is the inspiration for our wild garden style ethos. I root my floral design in every precious fleeting seasonal moment, growing and creating only ever with local seasonal scented British flowers.

If sustainability matters to you, if you care that floral creations are as kind to the environment as they are beautiful, then I am a kindred spirit.

We share our artisan florals in our live online virtual flower classes, and with our flowers, create bouquets and undertake a few intimate Cheshire weddings a year.

Floral Classes For 2022

Sadly …

.....our canalside wild garden LIVE online classes have finished for now.

Thank you if you were part of the "Nature and Nurture" flower class series 1H 2021. We loved every single class from everlasting dried Valentine's Wreath's, and wild garden style bouquets for Mother's Day, Easter and Spring with the final bouquet class on the summer solstice.

We don't have any further classes right at the moment, but we are finalising our programme for 2H 2021 right now so check back soon or subscribe to our newsletter to be amongst the first to hear!

We are plotting and planning, exploring and investigating floral classes for 2022.

Always, our fierce focus is to share how we create our signature "Wild garden Style" floral designs using local, scented, seasonal and sustainable flowers.

In fact. we only ever use local, garden grown (in our case) British flowers. Our desire is in every class to inspire you to create your own planet friendly, environmentally conscious floral designs using ingredients that reflect your season, your flora and your locale. 

Rather than a constraint, we believe creating with your own seasonal garden grown flowers encourages you to make floral art that truly embodies your own unique floral signature.

2022 is our 3rd season of live online classes.  We look forward to continued conversations with sustainable floral enthusiasts from the far flung Scotland Highlands, down to Devon and Cornwall, across to Wales, and way beyond to North America, Australia, New Zealand.
