A lovely selection of Spring flowers were cut by the ladies at our April workshop ...
After a cup of tea and introductions in the polytunnel, we discussed flower selection, timing of cutting, conditioning and storage. The participants were then taken around the field and shown how to cut the various stems for their bouquets... Ranunculus, Anthriscus, Narcissi, Lilac, Tulips, Viburnum opulus, and foliage.
A demonstration followed, and coaching for the ladies to make a lovely hand-tied bouquet.
After cake and tea in the workshop, we went on to make wrist corsages with more of the fresh-picked flowers.
