The Flower Press is botanical indulgence with a side of relevant issues.

We are flower and garden lovers with a penchant for words and pictures, for meeting people and finding unique experiences that light us up, botanically speaking. 

We’ll celebrate the art of floristry, gardens and garden design and find all the good stuff from workshops and travel ideas to accommodation and products.

Occasionally we’ll post about some of today’s challenges and issues that intersect with nature.  

As our societies become more urbanised, the term ‘Nature Deficit Disorder’ among children (and adults) is a bit of a concern, as is sustainability in the floristry / cut flower trade sector. 

Expect an informative read, gorgeous imagery and inspiring people. x
