Summer Flower Arranging Workshops
Spend a relaxing morning learning how to make a beautiful hand tied posy using fresh Summer flowers bursting with colour and scent. With step by step guidance you can take your time, crafting your own unique bouquet of seasonal blooms. You’ll 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. We also share a quick and simple way to wrap your bouquet so that it becomes a perfect gift wrapped arrangement. I promise, you will never be stuck for present ideas after this workshop.

Westonbirt Arboretum is one of the most diverse and beautiful botanical collections in the world. The Walled Garden at Mells is a hidden gem and is found in the heart of this pretty Somerset village and offers many good walks nearby.
