  • Florence Kennedy of Petalon Flowers talks us through her beautiful floral arrangement for British Flowers Week. Using the front section of a bike (built by her husband), she has created a truly stunning display. Lupins, sweet peas and delphiniums combine to create a pretty, country-style arrangement. “I love carnations, the really lovely thing about these ones from Cornwall is the shades they come in”, she says while strolling through the New Covent Garden Flower Market. Florence chose pinks, creams and whites hues for her arrangement and mixed in peonies and black cornflowers. “I don’t like everything to look to straight..nothing is very rigid”, she says about her arrangements. New Covent Garden Flower Market’s British Flowers Week runs from Monday 13th to Sunday 19th June.
