Bea cre­ates nat­u­ral­is­tic flower ar­range­ments for events and runs work­shops in floristry. She is a hor­ti­cul­tur­ist at heart. “I have been work­ing with plants and flow­ers for more than 20 years, but us­ing them in flo­ral dis­plays has opened up a whole new world that I am still ex­plor­ing,” she says. Bea worked as head gar­dener with Sarah Raven at her East Sus­sex farm, Perch Hill, where she was lucky enough to in­dulge her en­thu­si­asm for grow­ing a wide va­ri­ety of flow­ers and ex­per­i­ment­ing with de­sign. More re­cently, she set up Botanika, a small flo­ral de­sign stu­dio in Has­socks, West Sus­sex, where she cre­ates dis­plays that re­flect the sea­sons, us­ing wild el­e­ments, var­ied tex­tures and nat­u­ral colour com­bi­na­tions.
