Today I filled a vase for a regular customer. It included a late second flush of roses, rosehips, cosmos, leaves and the last of my chrysanthemums. Why is it colours never look them same in photographs? It was a mixture of burgundy and apricot with a little white and dusky pink. Anyway I have to admit that these are the last flowers I will cut for the season and now it is Christmas all the way!
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.
