It is utterly gorgeous here in Bedfordshire (long may it continue).
I thought I would show you how I make a cottage style bouquet as it’s my favourite month for garden flowers.
I’ve picked everything I need the night before and left them to condition over night somewhere cool in a bucket of water right up to the necks.
I’ve picked lots of herbs, I always find mint works really well and lasts a long time, as does sage.
Then I went mad picking feverfew, David Austin roses, larkspur, snapdragons, scabious, cornflowers and beautiful ammi.
The herbs are the ground cover for my bouquet and the ammi is the flower that makes my look feel loose and natural.
The roses are the star of the show and the snapdragons are the filler.
Everything else tells a little story that brings the whole look together.
Tie with string and wrap it around and around.
