Summer is here… Hooray for the wildflowers!

 

Wild flower patch

This year I’ve adapted the Posy plot a little and just added a wildflower ‘strip’. It’s by far the easiest allotment job I’ve ever undertaken. in the Spring I weeded and raked a bit of ground at the edge of the dahlia bed and just scattered a box of British annual wildflower mix, no weeding as such, no tending that was it! and they really are the most beautiful flowers. Poppies have indeed come into their own this year too. It seems we had the right amount of rain early on .

Wildflower patches are the increasingly popular not least because of the ease but for our insects and pollinators, the perfect habitat. I love to incorporate wild flowers into my British grown flower bouquets for brides. It adds to the wild natural style I love.

Grasses too are incredible this year, I’ve been collecting them along with seed heads for my annual Autumn foraged wreath workshops. I will announce dates after the summer.

I’ve been busy with a subscription service too. I’ll happily deliver British homegrown flowers every week to your home  if you’re local. Please get in touch, we can have a chat about what suits!

So on with the Summer…long may the sunshine continue. I’ve wedding flowers to create and deliver!

Floral centrepiece workshop

 

There has been lots of activity going on with Posy over the last few weeks. I was busy with Floral wreaths and table centres over the Easter break and also had some exciting conversations with fellow creatives. In particular I’ve been lucky enough to collaborate with the lovely Louisa Canham from La-Eva, her beautiful Studio really is a Mecca for people like myself.  I’m thrilled to be hosting my first floral workshop of the year at the beautiful home of  http://www.la-eva.com.  Art of Organic Beauty.

Come and play with springtime flowers and foliage, get creative in a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere. You will be able to choose from a selection of vintage kitchen ware and crockery in which you can make yourself a beautiful arrangement to take home and be proud to have as your table centrepiece!

All flowers and foliage will be *locally grown and foraged as as much as possible. I like to run small intimate groups therefore giving everyone help and attention, and because it’s just nicer that way!

I’ve no doubt that working with beautiful seasonal blooms will bring you much joy.

There will be some yummy refreshments and happy chat and all the materials you’ll need will be provided .

Please email me to book your place!

March 2018

I’m excited to tell you about Posy’s latest collaboration with Styled by Nina, Drift Wellness Therapies & La Eva .

Saturday 3rd March ,Woodstock, Oxon…….  come along and say “Hi!’

 January 2018

This quote from Gertrude S Wister –  renowned  American Horticulturist, is completely appropriate to how I feel at this time of year. February is the shortest , coldest month but there is so much happening in nature after the quiet of January. Underneath the snow and ice beauty is in abundance… the days are getting longer and Spring is just around the corner .

Snowdrops, Aconites, Hellebores and Crocus all have centre stage.

The Hellebore ( Christmas or Lenten rose) is probably my most favourite flower at this time of year.

It’s beauty and fragility are almost unrivalled, especially when working with them as a cut flower. They are notoriously hardy but when cut they have a mind of their own, best admired either in the garden or simply snip the heads and put in a bowl of water as floating blooms. I’ve learnt a great deal from these beauties this last month and quite honestly have become a little obsessed!
