Fleur McHarg is a florist in the true, traditional sense of the word. Guided by the eternal wisdom of Constance Spry, the trailblazing early-20th-century British florist, Fleur believes in letting flowers be the stars of the show by working with the natural shape of a flower or branch. When it comes to beauty, you can’t beat nature – but you can learn how to showcase it for startling impact.
As the daughter of milliner Wendy Mead and great-niece of British Vogue fashion editor Madge Garland, it was inevitable that Fleur would become an artist of some kind. From art school and her first exhibition aged 19 through to today, Fleur has cultivated a lifelong obsession with colour, beauty and flowers. Here, she shares her astute flower philosophy, including:
– Over 30 of her favourite flowers and how to use them
– Why some combinations work and others don’t
– How to select a base and blend colours for a flower arrangement
The Flower Expert is a stunning celebration of Fleur’s artistry and her ability to fuse modern and classic to create a style that suits each occasion.
