This reference guide to flower arranging begins with the tools of the trade and the basic principles of flower design. It shows how these are used for classical and contemporary arrangements of all sizes from a simple bouquet or formal table arrangement to a flamboyant display for the entrance hall. Packed with innovative ideas for celebrations such as Christmas, Valentine's Day, weddings and anniversaries, the book also offers advice on choosing flowers which should last and preserving them for permanent arrangements. Season-by-season suggestions reveal how to make the best use of flowers from the florist, the garden and the market, as the year progresses. All the necessary techniques and tools are described in detail, and international contributors bring ideas from around the world. Judith Blacklock has won the Lindley Medal at the Chelsea Flower Show.
