Theme I : British Flowers
This theme highlights the environmental benefits of British flowers. Exhibitors must make predominant use of plant material grown in the UK.
Theme II : Preservation
This theme highlights approaches to waste minimal floristry and floral design, and how dried flowers, and plant material, are beneficial for the environment as well as for your garden. To inspire visitors to see the natural beauty of dried flower displays – championing the long-life qualities of the technique.
Theme III : Pollination
This theme highlights the sharp decline of the world’s insect populations, whilst also highlighting the drastic reduction in Britain’s wildflower meadows.
Theme IV : Beauty of Nature
This theme emphasises storytelling as its core concept. To encourage designs with a strong horticultural message, taking inspiration from the beauty of the natural world. The only restrictions being the boundaries of space and imagination.
