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.
Floral Classes For 2022
.....our canalside wild garden LIVE online classes have finished for now.
Thank you if you were part of the "Nature and Nurture" flower class series 1H 2021. We loved every single class from everlasting dried Valentine's Wreath's, and wild garden style bouquets for Mother's Day, Easter and Spring with the final bouquet class on the summer solstice.
We don't have any further classes right at the moment, but we are finalising our programme for 2H 2021 right now so check back soon or subscribe to our newsletter to be amongst the first to hear!
We are plotting and planning, exploring and investigating floral classes for 2022.
Always, our fierce focus 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.
2022 is our 3rd 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.

I felt like I was there. I just couldn't reach out and stick my nose in the flowers. It was as if I was sat in your front room watching your creativeness.
