I have been a big fan of Sarah Raven ever since I did a workshop with her at The English Gardening School back in 2001. By that time she had already written two books, The Cutting Garden and The Bold & Brilliant Garden. Two books that have been part of my garden library ever since they were published.
Since then she has written several cookbooks as well as books on vegetable growing and cutting gardens. She writes a regular gardening column on Saturdays for The Daily Telegraph and was a presenter on BBC Gardeners' World for many years.
Her latest book was called Wildflowers; all about celebrating British wild flowers.
Sarah is married to the author Adam Nicolson, grandson of novelist Vita Sackville-West, who with her husband Harold Nicolson created the stunning gardens at Sissinghurst Castle in Kent.
Sara lives with her family at Perch Hill Farm in East Sussex, where she runs courses on food & cooking, floristry & flowers, wildlife, gardening and growing vegetables.
Sarah also has an on-line shop where she sells seeds, plants, bulbs and lots of other things for the garden and the home.
This beautiful floral wrapping paper is from her shop. The stunning photography of the flowers is by Jonathan Buckley, who also does all the photography for the Sarah Raven catalogue.
These coloured luggage tags are also from Sarah's on-line shop. They come in five different colours so you can colour coordinate your presents.
I customised the tags by adding washi tape and using rubber stamp lettering. Perfect for Christmas as it is a quick and easy way to make it individual and unique.
The lovely flowers are very large heads of Chrysanthemums in a gorgeous dusky pink. I arranged them in a light blue 1930's vase with deep ridges on the outside.
I am part of Sarah Raven's affiliate program and make a small commission from any sales.
Thank you very much to Alissa at Sarah Raven's office for sending me the items to review.
Have a lovely day!
Thank you for visiting and I will see you back here soon.
