We are going to focus our attention just on the ‘Herbaceous Group’ of plants which are the most common seeds that you will buy to grow as cut flowers… 

HERBACEOUS PLANTS (WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?)
Herbaceous plants do not develop a woody stem or structure and their stems usually die down in winter…

Kelly and Tommy

A Midsummers Night Dream. Surrounded by trees and nature, Kelly and Tommy made their vows in the woods…Kelly made all her own floral arrangements from the Bridal Bouquet, Buttonholes, Bridesmaids Bouquets and Flower Girl Posy’s, they kept things simple with elegant silk flower crowns….With Jam Jars waiting filled with clean water, once the Ceremony was over Kelly used the bouquets to add to the table arrangements….The bouquets and table arrangements blend seamlessly together…
