This was a very special wedding for me as Alana was one of my students when I first started lecturing (in that pesky other job I have!). Despite getting married in Canberra she was very keen for us to make her bouquets and with a colour palette of eggplant, blacks and greys as if I … Continue reading Wedding: Alana & Blake

That’s pretty much a wrap on our Spring subscription season! It’s so lovely to see the season unfold in our weekly blooms. We started with fluffy double daffodils and anemones and are ending with roses, amaryllis and foxgloves. A season of flowers brings such a lovely awareness of the season and garden. Spots are starting to fill … Continue reading Spring Subscriptions 2
Huzzah! We’re rockstars! Beth’s amazing floral scarf was selected by floral royalty Holly Hipwell to be a finalist in the Tesselaar Rockstar Florist comp! That’s a national comp folks! It’s made from flowers from our farm or foraged items (Yes even the orchid is ours!) and it’s such an awesome thing for the slow flower … Continue reading Rockstar Finalists!

Shannon approached us to make her ‘wearable’ blooms and, because her father in law is an ex florist, we supplied matching wholesale blooms for him to create the reception arrangements. This is one of the many truly … Continue reading Wedding: Shannon & Will

Half way through and the ranunculus … Continue reading Spring Subscriptions
As Spring turns in to Summer the pastel blooms are coming to the fore. Roses are the show pieces but are being backed up beautifully by nigella, queen annes lace, cornflowers & sweetpeas.
A just for fun arrangement that I made for a friend. With all those gorgeous blush ‘Albertine’ Roses it was all becoming a bit girly – so I added some spunk with the dark prunus foliage and these fun little seedheads (which if anyone can ID for me I’d be most grateful!) Albertine Rose, William … Continue reading Pink & Spunky
Through chance and sheer good luck I met the owner of Sunshine Iris nursery the other day. In fact she had dinner with my family! The Sunshine Iris nursery website has many images gracing my “Flower Farm” pinterest page. How to choose just a few bearded Iris?! Luckily for me this Iris farm is only an hour away … Continue reading For The Love Of Iris
