“Fleur McHarg is one of the most in-demand florists and floral arrangers for Australia's great and good. You could say that flowers have been an obsession since she was young – as a nineteen year old she was arrested for stealing magnolias from Como House in Melbourne, in fact a whole magnolia branch! Fleur’s distinctive arrangements are built on her great instinct for colour, and her belief that every flower has it’s own personality. In her book she shows you how to create breathtaking displays, looking at 30 of her favourite flowers, showing you what works and what doesn’t. Lauren, who looks after our craft and design books, thinks this is the best flower arranging book we’ve seen for several years.”
“The Melbourne-based style icon brings artistry to her arrangements, as well as her flower photography. Her sophisticated use of color and proportion is anything but ordinary.”
