“A very useful book for anyone wanting to learn good floristry techniques or refresh their skills. Having done Judith’s Wedding Flower course, I found this an excellent reference book for when I couldn’t quite remember how to do something like wiring an orchid. Lovely photos and very inspiring. Like all her books, they are essential for any budding florist who wants to ‘do it right’!”
