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.


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.
