FLOWERS & GARDENS

FLOWERS & GARDENS

For 4 years Daisy worked as a professional florist, trading independently as Flowers By Daisy - delivering flowers to homes and restaurants, running floristry workshops and styling flowers for large-scale events and photoshoots. She gained experience freelancing for top florists including Shane Connolly, Jane Packer and Jam Jar. She kept a diary of her life as a florist in the form of a monthly newsletter and the archive can be read here. Flowers, gardens and nature find their way into a lot of her writing.
