A perfect gift for Mother’s Day, and equally someone just starting to study floristry or work in the industry, is this newly published book, ‘The Flower Book‘ by Rachel Siegfried.
Taking you through the seasons, the book shines the floral spotlight on sixty flowers, with key facts about each type. You’ll find detailed information about what to look for when choosing your blooms at a florist or flower market, gardening tips, how to prepare and care for individual flowers, as well as advice on how to display them.
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen my Instagram Story over the weekend where I shared photos and videos from A Most Curious Wedding Fair in London. Taking place in the Old Truman Brewery in Brick Lane, it’s one of my favourite events to attend to discover new up-and-coming florists.
There were a few people who’d exhibited the previous year and lots of new faces too. And one of them was Rowan from Rowan Blossom, pictured above. We’d connected a few months ago via Instagram and it was so lovely to finally meet in person!
Last April, I had the pleasure of visiting ‘The Floral Escape’, run by Sabine Darrall at Hellens Manor in Herefordshire. And today, I’m delighted to share with you some of Katie Spicer’s stunning photographs of the event.
