FLOWERS AND NATURE have given so much solace over the past 12 months. As I write, gardens are blooming, birds are nest building – even pesky pigeons have a place in my heart (but a very small one) – and Flora has been given a bright and cheerful new look that reflects this feeling of hope for better times ahead.
In addition to this new design that I love, there’s lots of new content. Howard Franklin writes engagingly about his training in Floristry and Flower Decorations at Constance Spry, and I can’t wait to hear more of his floral adventures at Court.
As well as the private schools teaching floristry, many colleges across the country give structured training of the highest quality. With the help of teachers and students, in particular Capel Manor College, I’ve put together what I hope is the ultimate guide.
Gorgeous herb designs by Jonathan Moseley, flowers for cutting from Chrissie Harten, Jane Austen’s garden and a lot more besides – Flora is packed full of stimulating articles and design that you enjoy!
