Many of you, I am sure, will have been inspired by Monty on Gardeners World Friday night to have a go at your own flower arrangement. A fabulous flower arrangement can breathe life into any room in the home.
I am no florist, nor have I ever participated in any floral workshops and I urge any of you in the same position not to let this put you off! Get out there and get your noses into your pots, beds and borders!
Having recently moved house and inherited a garden with it, my choice of plants to create an arrangement were limited to a handful of hardy perennial do-gooders who have stood the test of time in a somewhat neglected garden. My offering is a modest arrangement of mainly lavender and fuchsias which have certainly lifted and brightened my studio this cloudy Sunday afternoon.
