At Christmas, I was asked to create some festive displays to Birmingham University’s Winterbourne House and Gardens. This arts and crafts treasure, open to the public, is the residence which forms part of the university’s botanical gardens and which will, in spring, host one of the finest bluebell woods in the area.

In Winterbourne’s blog, you can read more about the history of the house and how its gardens have changed over the years – and in the latest post, you can see how the movement towards locally grown and British flowers, ties in so well with the ethos of Gertrude Jekyll – stellar flower arranger and garden flower champion – who would doubtless be an active member of Flowers from the Farm if she were around today!

Read about Gertrude Jekyll’s philosophy, my Christmas installations and winter gardens here on the Winterbourne Blog.
