Thinking about flowers every day is my absolute passion, whether I’m making up a beautiful bridal bouquet or cutting a posy for my kitchen table.

I constantly see things that spark my floral imagination. From the romance of wild meadow flowers with their delicate, fragile petals to walking coastal paths surrounded by valiant native species braving the elements.

The beauty and variety nature creates constantly amazes me, wonderful patterns and colour combinations which are just some of the influences that inspire my style and guide my approach to designing and arranging.

I get excited when I see the first Spring bulbs with their bright jewel colours and heavenly scent and the pastel shades of Summer garden roses, deeply perfumed and blowsy. Brilliant, show stopping Dahlias, and the rich colours of Autumnal leaves and berries, even Winter branches covered in lichen. I adore them all.

Foliage is also a vital element of the quintessential wild and natural English garden style I am renowned for. The abundance and texture it brings to an arrangement is glorious. I like all my flowers to have that just gathered look, whether they have been cut from my garden or travelled from afar, so the result is natural and loose, and the effect is gorgeous.
