THIS BUMPER SUMMER ISSUE of Flora is packed with step by steps and articles on all things floral. Death in Paradise is a TV program loved by all and when renowned UK set stylist Mo Holden told me she was off to Guadaloupe, or should I say Sainte Marie, I had to know more – about the flowers of course. Her article is on pages 60–61. Last September I created a carousel with Neill Strain for Belgravia in Bloom with four horses from the Mary Poppin’s film and a stray Jumbo elephant. It took weeks of planning and sleepless nights, but it was all worthwhile when I put my granddaughter Penny on one of the horses. Penny and some of the other installations are on pages 30–31. In 2011 Paul Burrell and I got together to cover William and Kate’s wedding for a television channel in the States. We stayed in touch and I am delighted that he has written a piece on Princess Diana’s favorite flowers for Flora. Turn to pages 22–23. We feature two very different weddings, visit Pat Hutchinson’s garden in The Dales and are amazed by Chrissie Harten’s For One Night Only story on page 59.
