Boho wedding flowers are in demand

Tuesday, 10 September 2019 12:53:37 Europe/London

Brides are seeking out a rustic look for their wedding flowers - and bouquets, buttonholes, table centres and floral displays all work well with this natural style!

As florists, we are often asked to create arrangements with a casual, ‘just-picked’ style for wedding flowers and event space decor. If you want to go boho, our advice is to be quite flexible on flower varieties for your big day. Start by finding out which flowers will be in season around the date of your wedding before making any decisions.  It’s a good idea to involve your florist early, so we can advise you from the outset. 

Autumn is probably peak season for the boho style, simply due to the flowers, berries, seed heads and berried foliage around at this time of year, as they lend themselves perfectly to an informal look. The colours in Autumn are also very muted and romantic - but if rustic is what you are looking for at another time of the year, don’t worry - an ‘unstyled’ look can be achieved anytime.

What to plant and grow in shaded areas

Tuesday, 25 June 2019 13:44:28 Europe/London

What can I grow in a border that gets very little, if any, sunlight? It might surprise you that some plants and shrubs love the shade!

When planting in shaded areas, as well as sunny spots, you need to choose the right plants. Different species can cope with varying degrees of light - and so you also need to consider what you are dealing with: eg. dappled, light, partial or complete shade etc. Your soil is a consideration, too: does the shaded area you want to plant in have dry or damp soil? Once you know what the conditions are, you can plant accordingly.

Wednesday, 12 June 2019 13:26:29 Europe/London

Special occasions call for special touches! Whether you’re attending a wedding, a prom or another event, an eye-catching fresh flower corsage will really finish off your outfit.

What is a corsage?

While people often immediately think of corsages as a small arrangement which is pinned to a dress or jacket, there is so much more choice available to you! Our advice is always to tell us about your event outfit in terms of both colour and style, so your bespoke flowers can be designed to complement your look.

If you want to tone with or contrast the colour of your outfit we can help guide you on which flowers will work best. Here are some corsage ideas that you may not have considered:

Celebrating International Women’s Day!

Wednesday, 6 March 2019 15:53:03 Europe/London

It’s International Women’s Day this Friday (March 8th). I’m sure you’ve heard of it because it’s an important global celebration and has been observed annually for over a century, recognising the long fight for women’s rights.

You may know that many people mark the event with flowers, giving a gift to the inspirational and important women in their lives - but you might be surprised to learn that International Women’s Day is the biggest flower-giving event across the globe, even ahead of Valentine’s and Mother’s Day! This is because one of the enduring traditions of this worldwide event is the simple act of giving flowers to show support and appreciation - and to acknowledge women’s achievements and strength.

The first celebration is said to have taken place in 1911 across Europe, with demonstrations calling for suffrage and equality within the workplace and society in general. Flowers became part of the celebrations early on, however, they became truly ingrained in the festivities after World War II, when Italian feminists selected the Mimosa flower to symbolise strength, sensibility and sensitivity.
