They can brighten up and add the finishing touches to just about any space you can imagine, even fields and pastures! The World Equestrian Games, soon to take place at the Kentucky Horse Park. But the road to preparing the event was not all smooth sailing. Around mid-summer organizers of the event found that their floral budget had been cut. Luckily with a helping hand and generous donation from the UK College of Agriculture, the games will not be short of flowers. Volunteers involved in solving the problem also found themselves short on time to grow the flowers. So they had to approach the problem from a different angle. Flowers that hadn’t been sold, or were on their way to dying were tended and brought back to life. The volunteers made their way through several greenhouses, salvaging whatever they could find. With a bit of fertilizer and some re-potting the flowers were ready for their trip across the ocean. The flowers will be used to decorate the park and jumps for the games. All it takes is a little innovation and creativity to really make an event memorable and enjoyable. This is why at Todich Floral Design we enjoy helping you decorate and organize your events.

Tweet 0 Posted in General, Lifestyle, news, Plants, Todich Floral Design News | No Comments » November 30th, 2009 The Snap Dragon is a flower that often escapes our thoughts, but with the development of breeding, this little beauty is becoming hardier by the year. Hybrids of this flower are less susceptible to heat, tough against the cold, sturdy and available in a new palette of colors. No matter what the climate is like in your area, the spadragon can make itself at home at some time in the year. Usually, it is a gardener’s favourite complement for the pansy during autumn. Where winter is a bit colder they are planted at the end of winter or the beginning of spring, filling gardens with color through summer. The botanical term for this bloom is Antirrhinum majus. Breeding of this plant has taken enormous steps forward, making it a tough little addition to the garden. The Sonnet and Liberty variety are especially favoured, in the garden they grow to a nice The Snapdragon Tougher Than Ever flowersreception pedestal flow ers restaurant flow ers rose roses Season for w edding flow ers Secret Rose Garden spring flow ers for w edding Spring w edding flow ers summer w edding flow ers summer w eddings w edding w edding bouquets w edding bouquets london w edding flow ers w edding flow ers london

This means that they do not need structural support, both in the garden or in a flower arrangment, making them nearly hassle-free. The snapdragon is also available in dwarf varieties, with the Tahiti and the Montego being especially praiseworthy types. The Montego is a bit more sturdy in nature, and unlike the Tahiti it does not have a tendency to fall over. These flowers are bit smaller reaching a height of only 12 inches. If you are looking for something a bit off the beaten path, the rare coloring of the “Twinny” offers something more unique. This is a double flowered version of the snapdragon, its peachy color gives off an air of nostalgia to any garden or arrangement. The hybridization of a the Spanish Antirrhinum hispanicum and A. molle lead to the introduction of trailing snapdragons, opening new doors and looking for new solutions from designers. This development also lead to creating a more heat-tolerant version of the flower. Those who are planting this flower at this time of year are taking a bit of a gamble, but it is still possible that this flower is in bloom in many places, meaning that it is still a possible option for flower arrangements. There is something whimsical and lighthearted about the snapdragon, it can soften the harder edges of any arrangement. With specialized breeding there is quite a palette of colors to choose from. Using this flower as a part of your next design idea can add an element of originality, as well as take you back to childhood years to the time when many of us would gently press together the head of the flower, to see the ‘dragon’ open its jaws.

pdfcrowd.comopen in browser PRO version Are you a developer? Try out the HTML to PDF API Sometimes it can be hard to define, what exactly we find beautiful on the cold stormy days of winter. When taking a closer look, howling winds and below zero temperatures could mean the source of inspiration for the next floral centrepiece to adorn your table at a special event. Gales carry with them what nature has discarded cones, needles, branches, seed pods and other beautiful, natural pieces of art. When working with the right floral designer, nature can lead to the formation of magnificent pieces of botanical art, using city streets, country lanes, or a farmer’s field for as the source of inspiration. Some have even made this their craft, those who use natural resources for their floral design have been given the title of wildcrafter. As their line of work requires it, they lead a life completely immersed in nature, developing a keen eye for possible material in the outdoors.
pdfcrowd.comopen in browser PRO version Are you a developer? Try out the HTML to PDF API This type of designer will be very unlikely to create the traditional Christmas wreath, made of pine or cedar, instead other materials are used making a less obvious reference to the holiday. This kind of approach can be far more refreshing, a bit of originality can just as easily capture the spirit of the season, perhaps even more so, than a green wreath with a red bow that is a mirror image to the one hanging on the neighbour’s front door. One wonderful example is the use of blackberry, rose hip or birch branches to create a wreath. When birch is in question, branches collected in early spring are fairly malleable, and they can simply be wound around each other, until the desired thickness is reached. Then it is up to the designer to decide what is to be used as further decoration. This can be flowers, bark from from other trees, berries or whatever you like best. Using nature as a source for ideas can have more than one positive aspect. Natural design and decorations can act as a reminder to stay green, while using nature’s creations will guarantee that you stay unique. In the following few months we will all be spending a considerable amount of time going from house to house, event to event, or perhaps organizing one or several get- togethers of our own. Wouldn’t it be rejuvenating to see one unique decoration scheme after another? Our own homes or events could also see some refreshment with a little boost from the outdoors. There is no need to start wandering through the woods collecting branches like a wildcrafter. But the next time you consult with a floral designer, don’t forget to think back to the last winter walk you took. With a little help from our designers you could be on your way to creating design that is earthy, yet spectacular and original.

Predictions such as this highlight the importance climate change has in the floristry industry. If temperatures continue to rise, it is almost certain the price of cut flowers will increase. The varieties of flowers will change and the current seasonal flowers will be in different seasons. The worst hit areas are likely to have oceanic climates, such as Western Europe, the US east coast, New Zealand, Chile and North Africa. Working with a natural resource such as flowers means we need to have an even stronger outlook. We as an industry must ensure we do our utmost to reduce climate change and prevent the effects of global warming by reducing our carbon emissions and waste material, reusing as much as possible and recycling everything we can.

pdfcrowd.comopen in browser PRO version Are you a developer? Try out the HTML to PDF API The Gold Medal Garden at Tatton If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to create a gold medal garden in two weeks, look no further. Philip Dugdale and Alan Burns, have recently won the gold medal for the Best Visionary garden 2009 and have been kind enough to share some of the pictures of development with us! Recent graduates of Leeds Metropolitan University, these two young landscape architects have surpassed any expectations held of them. The garden took two years of planning, 6 months of non-stop work (including growing all the plants themselves), 3000 flags of ethically sourced Indian Sandstone, 283 wire cages (gabions), 17 tonnes of stone, 3 tonnes of steel and a collective weight loss of 3 stone between the duo! They describe their concept as, “Fusing

And unique they are! Tatton is the show that aims to “break the mould of garden design and show innovation and foresight”, which is taken entirely literally in the case of this magnificent cubed garden. “Some of the plants are 30-50 years old – the gunnera came from a plant more than 100 years old,” Alan explained. “The judges couldn’t believe we weren’t gardeners. We have an eye for what works, including in nature.” Philip, of Marton Moss, labels himself as a new generation “Mosser”, and concedes he’s influenced by the local coastal, urban and rural sprawl of the area, and concludes: “Now more than ever we need to have more ecological sustainability within our surroundings – and that’s key to the Cubed ethos.” The garden will be on display in Liverpool at the Kirsty Doyle Store from the 25th of August.

We are now buying all of the compost created from our organic waste back from Aardvark and replacing our old brand of compost with our own! This means we’ve got a chain of recycling directly in our organisation, from start to finish! For the last year, we have been recycling all of our flowers with Aardvark Recycling which they turn into compost alongside other organic waste they receive. This high in demand compost is used for various projects around London, including inner city roof gardens, compost for community groups and compost for the Garden Museum. This organic waste is created mainly through our contractual flowers for hotels, restaurants and offices. Each week, we replace our old vases with fresh, new flowers. These flowers are then taken back to our warehouse and sent over to Aardvark. So we are absolutely pleased to announce our new initiative with our recycling partner and hope this is another step forward of many to come! Our existing recycling policy can be found on our partner website here.

Their musical success in Faith No More stemmed their careers further into the musical business after their split in 1998- Mike Patton, lead singer, has been involved with the incredible vocals in one of my personal favourite bands, Lovage, as well as stepped in as lead vocalist for the Dillenger Escape Plan for recording of ‘Irony is a Dead Scene’. His versatile singing voice has lead to critics calling him “one of the most talented singers in rock music.”

Our passion for floristry has allowed us to truly push forwards and become an appreciated part of the florist industry in London. Flowers24Hours.co.uk (our gift and flower delivery service) is the company that paved the way for all UK based internet florists today as the first automated same-day flower delivery replicating an offline shop in an online environment. Company founder and florist Todd Todic discovered a massive gap in the market in 2001 and utilized new technology to aid his quest of supplying flowers to London. Promoting solely in our early stages through SEO marketing, we were quickly one of the top search results for a large variety of keywords. The beauty of our service lies in the absolute efficiency of our service. Mr. Todic developed a hi-tech web-solution to resolve the error of human mistakes that can be made with vast paper based orders whilst tackling the emerging issue of carbon reductions. This solution extends into our delivery software which optimizes driversâ€™ routes for the day. This, alongside keeping our vans serviced to mint condition, allows us to reduce our carbon emissions significantly whilst keeping optimum efficiency. This software also extends to our customer service, where customers can track their orders online and see exactly when the driver delivers their item, and if it was left with a neighbour, which neighbour it was left with. Whilst we were delivering many bouquets and vase arrangements as gifts, Todd realised that this website wasnâ€™t generating enough interest for weddings, events and corporate flowers. This was due to the fact Flowers24Hours.co.uk didn’t match the target market of this audience. Mr. Todic then launched Todich Floral Design, a website designed to cater precisely for this audiences needs. Unlike Flowers24Hours.co.uk, it does not do same day or next day gifts for the general public, only events; weddings; restaurants; hotels and corporate. This allows us to cater for both markets separately and successfully. We now have an extensive range of corporate clients and provide flowers for weddings and events on a regular basis! We provide a valuable and efficient service to our customers at a fantastic value for money. We target our audience carefully to ensure our channels of communication are comfortable for our separate target markets. We consider the environment fully and utilize technology aptly to aid us in our service. Posted in Events | No Comments »
