A Garden Bouquet - bringing the outdoors in

There is no doubt that Summer has arrived in the UK, we have had weeks now of good weather which is certainly benefiting the garden. Although if it continues for months I am sure you will hear me complain that my vegetables are bolting and the water butt has run dry!

With so many wonderful flowers in bloom in the garden it a shame when some of them are hidden away, whilst others are on display for all to see. So this year I have decided to bring more flowers into the house, if the garden can spare them of course.

Having watched The Big Allotment Challenge on BBC2 earlier this year, I have tried to remember some of the tips given by floral judge Jonathan Moseley, and then I have probably ignored them.

Flowers in my first Summer garden bouquet are:

  • Lavender
  • Penstemon
  • Canterbury Bells
  • Sweet Williams
  • Lady's Mantle
  • Erysimum
  • Jacob's Ladder

If anyone has any tips for flower arranging please feel free to share them with me.
