An inspirational flower arranging book that uses Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter as a guideline. Flowers in urban and country settings are shown, with useful information on growing techniques and recycling, preparation tools and containers. A deliberate use of faded, archaic backdrops to move away from white, modern styling usually employed in flower arranging books. Shane Connolly has many high-profile and international clients and works by Appointment to HRH The Prince of Wales. He designed all the flowers for the Royal wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in April 2011. Stunning pictures by Jason Lowe, one of lifestyle publishing's leading photographers.
