‘It’s All In The Vase’ – Autumn

Our favourite season for going big, as the hedgerows and orchard provide plenty of foliage and fruiting branches to create wild and lush designs. With over eighty varieties of dahlias and an array of late flowering annuals and perennials to accompany your foragings we will be scaling up for this floral class with a series of large vase arrangements to take home.

Rachel will show you how to pick and design your arrangements whilst exploring the floral possibilities in the tunnels, fields and orchard. Back in the flower studio she will demonstrate her ‘grown in’ style and philosophy, explaining how she selects the right vessel and its importance in the size, shape, mood and style of the finished design.

Capture the season in a loose, natural-style

Pick and condition flowers and foliage

Match your floral selection with the right vase

Support the stems with environmentally friendly alternatives to florists foam

Create a front-facing arrangement for a mantlepiece or sideboard
