Urban Flowers: Creating abundance in a small city garden Hardcover – 6 Apr 2017

Carolyn Dunster (Author)

Creating colour and interest in a small urban garden by growing a range of flowers and other decorative plants brings with it many rewards. Carolyn Dunster shows you what to grow and how to use your own blooms, leaves and berries in a range of indoor displays and hand-tied bouquets. Locally-grown flowers in season is a significant and welcome trend in floristry, and just as eating a tasteless strawberry in December pricks our consciences, so too does purchasing a bouquet of tulips in September, however stunning they may be to look at. The most local, seasonal flowers, which are the most satisfying to give and to display, are the ones you have grown yourself. Carolyn Dunster shows you how to do this in the smallest of spaces.

Carolyn Dunster trained in floristry with Jane Packer and now works as a florist and planting designer, running her business, Urban Flowers, from her home in north London. She has written for several magazines including House & Garden and Country Homes & Interiors. She exhibits regularly at garden shows and flower festivals in the UK, and recently co-designed a small cutting garden at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show behalf of Katie’s Lymphoedema Fund, which won the People’s Choice Award. She designs planting schemes for small urban plots and grows as many flowers as possible in her own city garden to use in her floristry work.
