Can't get to our Bloom & Wild flower arranging workshop? Don't worry, we've got some tips for you to tie your own posy at home.
1. Choose a jam jar or a selection of bottles and grab some floristry scissors (or secateurs) and twine.
2. Choose between 3-5 stems for your posy and don’t cut the stems down to size yet. Start by taking each stem and stripping the base of its leaves, when leaves get into the flower water they can cause the flowers to spoil sooner, so keep your stems clean. Place each stem in a pile so that you have all of your flowers laid out and ready to style.
3. Fill up your jar with fresh room temperature water and flower food. Flower food is fantastic as it keeps the water clean.
4. Now start by creating a tee-pee shape with your foliage, criss-crossing the stems in odd numbers to balance the posy. Then gradually start to add in your flowers in the same way, layering in wilder flowers with bigger blooms.
