With Spring in full swing, the days getting longer and the sun slowly thawing our wintery bones, we're finding solace from lockdown through the incredible imagery and flower arranging ideas from our favourite independent florists.
We can't get enough of Willow's IGTV videos where she regularly shares tutorials, tricks and tips for getting the most from your flowers. This week in advance of the long weekend, she teaches us how to make a woodland Easter garden in a basket - and if you scroll down you'll discover her secret tips on making your supermarket tulips look more whimsical, ideas for the best looking tablescapes and how to make a gorgeous spring wreath. On her site you'll find even more inspiration, workshops that she's hosting and her shop where you can find anything from hand-tied posies, vases, books and the most stylish secateurs we've seen.

If you're looking for a spectacular (but completely unpretentious) and unique display that incorporates sustainability and style, then this is your girl.

Relatively new to the game, owner Siana's style provides a unique and fresh take on traditional bouquets that can often feel a little overcomplicated. Colourful and simplistic, these charming displays feel like a wink from Spring herself, adding life and zing to our instagram feeds.
