Floral Media # 13 Thinking of Spring Flowers!




Charlotte Andersson is a fellow Swede who writes the blog Trädgårdsflow. I've followed her amazing gardening blog for years and since April 2013 is the gardening editor of the Swedish magazine Lantliv. She has also opened a web shop, Garden Flow Shop, where she sells stylish things for the garden. 

Sweet Pea Erewhon

Erin Benzakein from Floret Flower Farm has put together a blog post called My Favourite Sweet Peas - where she tells us how she picks out her special sweet peas to grow on their flower farm in Skagit Valley in Washington. 


Here is a pretty image of spring tulips by Linda Lomelino - the Swedish cake lady - I know I've featured her many times - but I just can't resist her photography and her cakes....!



A few potted spring flowers by Minna Mercke Schmidt from Blomsterverkstad  - another favourite Swede of mine! Minna is not only an amazing photographer but also a general styling guru for anybody who likes working with flowers.



Erin Boyle from Gardenista shows you a quick and easy way to disguise a plastic pot Using a simple brown paper bag and ribbon it becomes a chic and stylish gift to give away this spring.



If you are ever in Copenhagen in Denmark - go and visit Martin Reinicke and his shop Blomsterskuret in the Vesterbro district. Martin is a florist and a potter and his charming shop has beautifully arranged flowers in baskets outside the shop. Featured on Gardenista by Alexa Hotz - who asks the question - World's Most Beautiful Flower Shop?

This last link is for all you gardeners out there - a quiz - The Daily Telegraph has put together 80 questions to test your general knowledge about gardening. Mind you it's quite challenging! Good luck - all the answers are at the end - so don't cheat.......! Well, whatever way you do it - you learn a lot - I certainly did!
