Say it with flowers

Ever wished you could put together the perfect personalised bouquet. A one-off Saturday event in mid-May at Embassy Gardens will show you how

A pop-up bouquet-making workshop will be held on the roof terrace and orangery of the Embassy Gardens marketing suite where people can learn floristry skills while overlooking the linear park and new US Embassy ornamental lake.

From 11am and 4pm on Saturday, May 19, residents and guests will be invited to find out more about life at Embassy Gardens while taking part in horticultural masterclasses and two hand-tie bouquet making workshops, courtesy of Lucie Mason Flowers (email events@ecoworldballymore.com to book a space).

Meanwhile a cart stocked with beautiful spring posies will showcase Embassy Gardens in full bloom. Seasonal sweet and savoury treats, all incorporating floral and botanical elements, will be available throughout the day.

The pop-up workshop is part of the 7th Chelsea Fringe Festival which is staging a huge variety of hundreds of horticultural events in London and throughout the UK, all exploring the great British love of gardens and gardening.

Independent of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, though acting with its support, the Fringe encompasses everything from grassroots community garden projects to avant-garde art installations.

An open-access principle governing the Fringe means that just about anything goes – as long as it’s interesting and legal, and on the subject of gardens, flowers, veg-growing or landscape - showcasing a wide range of work from professionals and enthusiasts, both from the gardening world and beyond. Contributors create installations, events and experiences, exhibits, talks and walks.
