I am starting to make wreaths for Christmas and this week have collected my first bags of moss. I make traditional mossed wreaths coverd with cutting garden holly and ivy. Last year I decorated with fennel seed heads and hydrangeas. This year I am using seedheads including fennel, poppies and love in the mist, also rosehips and dried lavender. The wreaths cost £20 and are all individually handmade.
As I am making my Christmas designs I will be posting regular pictures on my blog to help you choose what you would like to order.
My story in flowers started as a child growing a tiny patch of London Pride Saxifraga...also known as Whimsey or Look Up and Kiss Me! Fast forward to 8 years ago when I started a City and Guilds training in floristry. I qualified as a florist and then to deepen my growing knowledge and skills I trained in horticulture as well. I trained under a WRAGS scheme at Darsham Nurseries and at Somerleyton Hall. Developing a passion for both growing and designing/arranging British garden flowers, I planted a cutting garden. Having become increasingly concerned about where and how flowers are grown, coupled with a love of British grown flowers. and natural styling, I now specialise in growing and using beautiful British grown flowers to make romantic natural designs. for weddings, events, gifts and much more.
