In a big bouquet care has to be taken with conditioning your garden cut flowers so that they have stiff enough stems to stand and support the weight of big flower heads.
Then there is the mechanics of making this very large bouquet, not just in terms of doing this sustainably, but also just the actual practicalities of working with ingredients and stems so long especially with small hands!
Then there are the ingredients. Late summer scent is sometimes elusive but here, bulbs and perennials added to long tendrils of sweetpeas ensure there is a memorable visual and olfactory moment!
In this video I take you through ingredients, sustainable mechanics and my step by step process in making a very large hand tied bouquet with your seasonal garden grown flowers which can be given as a gift.
We're an environmentally conscious local floral business rooted in our wild Cheshire canal side cut flower garden, inspiring our weddings, workshops and creative digital online classes. 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.
Floral Classes For 2022
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.
