Sustainable Floristry

I had an inspiring day at the Flowers From The Farm Annual Conference yesterday. Shane Connolly delivered a fantastic talk and demonstration on sustainable floristry using seasonal foliage to create beautiful designs without floral foam. Many florists, including myself, are trying to avoid the use of floral foam in designs with alternative methods such as foliage branches to support arrangements and wrappings that can be recycled. Floral foam contains plastic and is not recyclable. It is good to see the RHS are backing sustainable floristry with a ban on the use of floral foam in their flower shows from 2021.
