On 18th May 2024, I am delighted to be talking with The Herb Society about creating a sustainable cutting garden. I’ll be sharing idea’s on how to be more sustainable in your garden, the flowers – and herbs – we are growing for fresh and dried arrangements, and a demonstration on how to make your own “Tussie Mussie”.

I would be so pleased if you joined me, and delighted to be in the company of two other speakers – John Cullen who holds the RHS national collection of achillea, and Elisabeth Brooke, herbalist and author, speaking about the magic of herbs.

As luck would have it, a few solstices ago now, a medicinal herbalist arrived at my door to collect her dried flower wreath. Her name is Kate Huet and I learned later that she chairs the Herb Society. A few moons later, I am delighted to announce that I’ll be giving a talk to The Herb Society, a 97 year old charity that promotes the use and enjoyment of herbs.

Live from our 19th Century Cheshire wharf built by Thomas Telford, we’ll be sharing the ideas and inspiration we’ve followed in creating and growing our own sustainable, scented, seasonal cutting garden with both flowers and herbs.

In addition, I will be providing practical tips on how to be more sustainable in gardening practices and will give a live demonstration of how to make a Tussie Mussie, that captures the beauty of May, in it’s purest, most seasonal moment.

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.
