Rachel Siegfried

Rachel is a flower farmer and floral designer who has been growing and arranging flowers for her business Green and Gorgeous for over ten years. She arranges her seasonal blooms for weddings as well as running courses at her farm in Oxfordshire. Her naturalistic style is illustrated in her book 'The Flower Book'.

My approach to teaching is immersive and hands on, I like to teach outdoors in the garden and always include practical sessions in propagation, harvesting and arranging.

My work is inspired by the changing seasons and surrounding countryside. I am influenced by my horticultural background and am interested in how plants grow and reflecting this in my floral designs.
