Dahlia wreaths, autumn online classes and planting our Cheshire canalside cut flower garden.

Whenever you are in the world, hello.

I am making wreaths. Not just any old wreaths mind you. Wreaths with dahlias from our cutting garden. Preference and Labyrinth and the fun girl Totally Tangerine are the dahlias that are flowering still. Dahlias chosen for their beautiful autumnal colours. Dahlia varieties chosen for their strong stems and blooming habit. Dahlias that I never leave in our solid clay soil. I love then too much!

Not just any old wreaths either in terms of their mechanics. Straw and string are our sustainable friends for making. There is always a joy to making when there is no issue with having to think about what to do with it afterwards. Created without floral foam or florists wires, ours can go straight onto our compost bin.

We’re now in mid Autumn in our Cheshire canalside cutting garden. There’s a nip in the air and Jack Frost has yet to visit. Lichen covered branches tumble from our beech tree, and we’re avoiding the horse chestnut as he showers us with conkers. All of these things influence our aesthetic. Now is the moment the spindle berry tree is adorned with her bright pink and orange berries. She knows she will match the dahlias.

All the seasons are fleeting. The light is shifting and we look to the Southern Hemisphere for their light as they looked to us what felt like only a few short summer moments ago.

Online when the southern hemisphere dials in to our classes, you can see the light pouring into the window, just as our dark seeps through ours. There is always ying and yang. There is no light without the dark.

And while the light is not the only thing that feels like it is profoundly shifting, we’re more determined than ever to keep planting our garden and to keep making sustainable wreaths and creating with sustainable seasonal flowers.


Fierceblooms is a environmentally sustainable floral business. Guarded by our ancient horse chestnut, our canalside cutting garden grows herbs and flowers while the wild edges hold magical medicinal plants here for much longer. Our hand crafted wild garden style wreaths and florals capture the seasonal moment and are created exclusively with British everlasting and fresh flowers.

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.
