The people, products and places creating a buzz this month
Impressively grand and unbelievably realistic, we love this glorious display of faux stems. Ideal to see you through the winter months when local fresh flowers are naturally less abundant, modern artificial stems are a revelation, with intricate changes in colour and subtle shifts in texture adding authenticity to the petals, leaves and stems. You’ll find a variety of ready-made arrangements at Fox Flowers, with prices starting from £100. Or if you prefer, you can select individual stems to create your own display from a choice of blooms and foliage, from £9 a stem. If you are feeling extravagant, treat yourself to the made-to-order Hydrangea Galore (below), an impressive arrangement of 45 stems featuring hydrangea blooms and mixed foliage, including eucalyptus, willow and fig leaves, in a handmade vase, H98xw90cm, £1,690 including delivery, foxflowers.co.uk.
