Today, I held the first of my flower workshops for 2016. The ladies were such good company, it was a great fun, relaxed morning. They made some awesome bouquets and I am hoping this has given them the confidence to try growing some of their own flowers and make some lovely handtied bouquets for family and friends. The next date is Tuesday 19th April when we will be making Tulip bouquets, do come and join me.
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.
