It is true! Flowers make a house feel like a home. They bring colour, perfume and a freshness into our lives, and they hold memories of family and friends.
This inspirational seasonal guide to buying gorgeous market-fresh flowers is full of ideas to create magic in your home and work environment, and is a visual treat for anyone passionate about flowers.
This book is all about buying local and using what’s in season and includes a seasonal flower buying guide courtesy of United Flower Growers.
There are also tips and hints on getting the most from your flowers and step-by-step instructions showing how to create Carole’s famous ‘park posies’, jam jar posies and hydrangea bouquets plus how to make circlets and garlands.
“My market fresh flower van started as a vision to bring the very best quality flowers directly to my local community... I have become part of that community and my flowers have become an addictive part of their lives.”
