Arranging Flowers Wild Garden Style At RHS Flower Show Tatton Park

It has been a hectic but exciting July. Yesterday I was talking and demonstating at the RHS Flower Show Tatton Park on a topic about which I am passionate - arranging flowers wild garden style.

I was cutting with the bats fluttering around me the night before to take the best of my canalside cutting garden to Tatton, inspired in part by the dry weather but also influenced by my floral heroine Constance Spry, pioneer of using her own home grown garden materials.

I also sourced some beautiful british flowers from Usk Valley Roses in nearby mid-Wales to use as a focal flower in my demonstration floral bouquet.

In my talk, I expanded on my theme of the 5Fs of wild garden style floristry which I have described in detail before on the fierceblooms blog and elsewhere.

In demonstrating to the audience the art of arranging flowers wild garden style, I created three arrangements including a wreath of dried grasses. This latter creation illustrated one of my 5Fs - following the seasons. The wreath in fact acknowledged this particular unusual season with a look and feel almost more autumn harvest than midsummer. But dear readers, that is what I am seeing out of my window when I look at my cutting garden right now.

Arranging flowers wild garden style at the RHS Tatton Flower Show was an absolute privilege and I would sincerely like to thank the RHS for giving me the opportunity to do so.

I will be attending RHS Tatton for most of the rest of the event (which finishes on Sunday 22nd July) so if your are at the show, pop along to the Flower School tent where you will find me in the Flowers From The Farm (FFTF) space, alongside other fellow FFTF North West members, running workshops.

It was an absolute privilege to indulge my passion for arranging flowers wild garden style by talking and demonstrating at the RHS Tatton Flower Show.

Come along and make a flower crown, buttonhole or jam jar posy and I will see you there!

Online Floral Classes

Always, our fierce focus in our unique online classes 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.

2023 will be our 4th 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.

Online Flower Class Testimonial

The wreath class on Sunday was excellent. It was fascinating to watch your technique step by step, to hear you explain so carefully how passionate you are about sustainability, and always so cheerfully and with such an appreciation for nature.
