Its great when something like this happens, it creates a buzz and excitement in the shop. There is also a degree of nerves, hoping we get it right and select the right flowers for the man himself! I knew that he did not like certain flowers and foliages but the choice of the biggest of the 8 arrangements was left to me! I knew that he liked spring flowers but of course in June that is not an option! I decided to select traditional, fragrant English country flowers including peony, stocks, roses and hydrangea, and thankfully they were very well received!
