Spring Urns at the TBG

I love copying, I am a thief of ideas, although my mother always said ‘Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery’. Here are a few ideas of spring urns at the TBG, that are worth copying.

When I was working at East of Eliza flower shop, I had an order for a sympathy plant arrangement. I took a lilac in flower, would a flowering clematis up its stem, and added forget me nots and violas at the base. I love using trees or shrubs for height in containers, especially spring where the plants are shorter than those flowering later in the season.

I can’t wait until I return to Canada full time, and I can have spring urns of my own.

    They do an amazing job at the TBG with their planters thanks to the genius of Paul Zammitt. He has such a good eye for these things.

    one of the great pleasure of my early market mornings is a chat with paul we are both always on the fly and often courteously competing for the same plant material ( but we play nice and share!)
    but he is just such a bright light in horticulture and and fine fine human to boot!
