Finally, what are some of your favourite flowers?
This is such a difficult question! I think I would answer it differently every day of my life depending on my mood, or the season. Within the floristry calendar, there are definitely some showstoppers - I do love a peony or an Icelandic poppy, but then again who doesn’t? Passionflower and snake’s head fritillary both amaze me and are great fun to photograph - I love the alien beauty of passiflora and the movement of the fritillaria. I’m always learning about new varieties at McQueens Flowers so I really could pick a new favourite every day. I think if it came down to it I would say that my favourite flowers are the small posies (picked from my parents garden) that my mum still puts in my room when I go home to visit, because flowers are so emotive, and the small kindness of giving them can mean so much.
