The Best of the Bunch is a new venture for RHS Gold medal wining garden designer Louise Bastow. Combining her intimate knowledge of flowers gained from many many years of making gardens with her finely tuned color sensitivity she loves sharing her passion and nurturing other's floral creativity through her workshops.

She offers a whole range of FLOWER WORKSHOPS in beautiful venues in and around Bristol. Come along to the stunning walled garden restaurant at The Ethicurean, enjoy the modern rustic chic of Oak Tree Barn or soak up the vintage charm of Cox and Baloney tea rooms while you have fun playing with flowers. The combination of being in inspiring surroundings and enjoying delicious home cooked food make these workshops a truly memorable experience. An ideal treat for either yourself or for someone special, we even have gift vouchers if you can't choose straightaway.  

For those who have caught the floral bug and are looking for ways to play around with flowers on a regular basis Louise holds monthly Kitchen table workshops from her home in Redland. It's a great way to try out lots of different seasonal flowers and foliage plus you get to create a whole host of beautiful floral decorations for your home. 

Or what about having your own FLOWER PARTY  to celebrate maybe a special birthday, baby shower, hen do or just a fun thing to do with friends? Try making hand tied posies, floral crowns or seasonal wreaths in the comfort of your own home. 

For each workshop Louise sources stunning flowers from both local growers and flower markets, choosing each bloom for its scent, form and colour. She also cuts herbs and foliage from her own kitchen garden plus gathers seasonal treats from hedgerows to use so you are sure to take home a stunning floral masterpiece. Don't worry as no previous experience is needed, Louise will clearly demonstrate what to do and then is on hand to help you whilst you have a go yourself.
