Make A Midsummer Hand Tied Bouquet


Fierceblooms shares the secrets of how to create a midsummer hand tied bouquet using ingredients growing right now in your cut flower garden.
Creating a garden grown midsummer hand tied bouquet when you’re lucky enough to have a garden full of flowers is sometimes trickier than you would wish it to be…….

Do you find it hard to know what flowers to cut to create a garden bouquet that you can arrange together easily, or even how to condition your flowers?

In this video I share the top 3 things to look out for when you’re next planning to make your own garden grown bouquet, including the ideal shape of ingredients to look out for, how to select a tonal colour palette, and the techniques to use when spiralling with garden grown stems that are not poker straight, so curved stems become an advantage rather than hindrance in your garden grown hand tied bouquets.

Also I discuss my top tips to guide your thinking about your own choice of flower to reflect “true seasonality” in your bouquets, so your hand tied bouquets reflect the garden they were grown in and season they were created.


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.
