Spend a relaxing morning in the Gardeners Bothy learning how to make your own beautiful hand tied posy. we will be using gorgeous autumnal flowers plus seasonal delights. You will learn our top tips for the spiral technique, widely used by professional florists but straightforward to master. This technique keeps your flowers in place when they are dropped into a vase.

I had a truly wonderful morning, with six other lovely ladies who all had their own reasons for being on the workshop. Louise was a great tutor and showed us how to make a posy using a spiral technique. Then it was our turn to try the technique before selecting the flowers for our posy to take home. The variety and wonderful perfumed smells of the flowers was just heady. I will certainly be booking onto another and recommend the crafty gardeners workshops for anyone who just loves flowers.
