Time To Change - Floral Installation by fierceblooms

RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2023 - Exhibit 37a
exhibit 37a RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2023

You are invited to our RHS Chelsea Flower show installation "Time to Change".

Rather than printing thousands of paper leaflets, we hope you approve of our sustainable approach.

This 'virtual leaflet' provides the traditional exhibit details, including the installation design and plants used. There's no paper handout just a modern sustainable alternative.

Spin the compass of our enchanted wild garden floral compass in our magical virtual leaflet. Every floral symbol has been chosen with a sustainable message for you.

A scroll down the page points you to other important sustainable changes the floral compass is telling you about today...

Design Description

fierceblooms - 'time for change' - Exhibit No 37a

An enchanted wild garden style floral compass points the way to a more sustainable floral future.

Inspired by the flowers grown and dried in the designers canalside cutting garden, the installation uses exclusively British grown seasonal flowers in purples, whites and blues, for sustainability and as a nod to the coronation.

Using innovative, reusable and biodegradable mechanics, string and straw are used to create a wreath and garlands that surround the floral compass.

The wren, the swan, the snail and their other wild garden friends invite you on your own sustainable floral journey.

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.
