Wild In The Garden By Alyson Reynolds - £13.99
Published - September 2015
In Wild in the Garden I wanted to concentrate on the background players so to speak, to demonstrate that although a great asset, you do not need to rely on large leaves and foliage to support an arrangement. With very few cutters - and most likely ones you will already have - together with a little creativity the subjects we often pass over can become the star attractions and give a whole new dimension to a display.
• Step by step written instruction supported with photographs at each stage
• More tips and techniques to develop your skills
• Details of cutters and colours to guide you together with full sized templates
• Beautiful photographs throughout
