Culti-Vate Homemade #009 British Flowers
Inspired by it being British flower week last week I took to the garden and collected some beautiful blooms to get creative with. I didn’t want to just collect flowers I wanted, but ones with unusual and interesting foliage. Each small arrangement has a limited colour pallet to show each of the flower varieties off. All of the arrangements I made are quite natural and informal, quite messy maybe! I much prefer the natural style to perfectly precise placement of flowers as it reflects the environment they have been grown in.
Matching my flowers to my table! Below are some of the flowers I used in the small arrangements.
Variegated horseradish leaves ar one of my favourite leaves, they are so elaborate with their colour and size!
Horseradish leaves for that something different, Angelica seed heads, Lovage for base foliage, Foxgloves for height, frilly background Cow Parsley, Aquilegias & Delphiniums to add height with the Foxgloves. I loved creating this vase of flowers, it was fun to go big after playing with small arrangements all day! Horseradish is definitely a plant I will be featuring more of soon, it’s just so attractive!
