Sarah Raven - How to Create a Hand Tied Bunch of Flowers

Sarah Raven is one of my favourite gardeners. To begin with she trained as a doctor then as a florist before becoming a gardener, a BBC Gardner's World presenter, a teacher, the writer of many both gardening and cookbooks and she runs her own business. I have done some of her workshops and I can tell you she's also a lovely lady and lots of fun.

The video I want to show you is one where Sarah makes a hand tied bunch of flowers in a little bit of a different but very clever way. I adore her sense of colour and also have many of her inspiring books that I keep going back to.

This is the second in a series of videos about flower arranging. You can have a look at the first video called How to Care for Your Flowers. 

I hope you like it and I hope you can pick up some useful tips on how to do a hand tied bunch of flowers.

Thanks for visiting and for making lovely comments. 

See you back here very soon.

Xoxo Ingrid

She makes it seem so easy! One thing I don't do is cut long enough stems. I can see why it is such a key point in arranging.

Thanks so much for sharing this, Inrid!
