One of my favourite things about Moth Orchids is their long blooming period. You can usually expect a good four months of blossoms out of a healthy moth orchid. But what about when the blossoming stops? Are you doomed to a petal-free mass of leafy greens and orchid spikes? No, I say! No, you are not! To

Patio weather has arrived in London, which, in my books, means cocktails! This spring I’ve been feeling cistrusy.

This is one of my favourite bouquets to date, a blend of Purple tulips, orange peony-tulips, freesia, and some shy blue hyacinth, still tinted in green. I have to admit, I went a bit crazy with this one, price wise, but I love it!  Can’t help but think of one of those lavish nights out–

I am fascinated with both language and flowers, so naturally I absolutely love the Victorian concept of a language of flowers. And so, in light of the arrival of Spring, here is a sweet posy-filled infographic on which flowers say what!
