'Timeless'-Lasting, Classic, Ageless, Without End.

In July 2019 I released my 4th collection of designs 'The Timeless Collection'.

In this collection my air drying methods were put to one side and I have used another traditional method to capture dried flowers at their very best.This method retains their colour and shape, giving the appearance of fresh.Yet they are 100% dried.

There really are no limits to what type of flowers can be dried.But I like to use classic old fashioned favourites in my designs and I concentrate on neutral colour palettes that work well in any interior.

In this collection I have used my favourite flowers of the season, Peonies,Hydrangeas,Roses and many other summer blooms from my garden.These are the stunning focal points of my wreaths so I like to work with flowers that have unique textures, shape and colour.

As well as my larger designs, I have produced some miniature wreaths which are only around 6"these have been extemely popular and come in a stunning flower bag.

I typically air dry my florals for that beautiful vintage aged look.The flowers tend to close slightly and through the process change colour. Some times lightening or darkening.

Recently I have been using another natural process which retains their shape and colour. Giving the appearance of fresh flowers, when actually they are 100% dried.

They are slightly more delicate giving a tissue paper like quality.But look almost the same as before the process.

My new wreath 'The Joys of Spring' incorporates Anemones, Garden Roses, Statice and Lisianthus using this process. For those of you that love an untouched, vibrant look.

Good morning from a very spring like Buckinghamshire!

Since my last Blog Post I have been busy planning my garden for this years plants and flowers.I am very fortunate to have a third of an acre to grow flowers. It gives me alot of options for planting a variety of colourful borders and this year is the first year Im really thinking about it carefully so I can grow a flower garden that will produce all year round. Im very much a fan of the old fashioned varieties. I love creating a garden similar to my Grandmothers full of scent and colour. But suitable for picking and drying. You will see in my creations a very similar style and look through out. Creating a very classic english garden look. My favourites without a doubt are Mop Head Hydrangeas! Lovely to work with and come in a wide range of colours.Hydrangeas have just started appearing in local florists and shops but for drying they will not be suitable until the end of the year.

Did you know?...

Hydrangeas change colour (except for the white ones) based on the pH level of their soil. The more alkaline the soil, the pinker the flowers. To make pink hydrangeas turn blue (or to keep your blue ones from turning pink), increase the acidity of soil!
