MONTHS of planning fell in to place for Vanessa Wellock who travelled to London on May 19 to exhibit in the Floral Design Studio at The Chelsea Flower Show. The title for Vanessa’s design was “British Born and Bred” - with all elements within the design made, manufactured or grown in Britain. The stand was made locally, the wool was local to the area, all the flowers were British, sourced from Lincolnshire, Norfolk and Cornwall. Vanessa is the in house florist for The Devonshire Arms Hotel, Bolton Abbey, where she had permission from the Duchess of Devonshire to visit The Private Walled Garden on the Devonshire Estate to pick beautiful plant material for her exhibit. Vanessa will be demonstrating her floral designs on Monday (June 10) at Ilkley Flower Club at the Clarke Foley Centre, Ilkley. Doors open at 7pm with the flower demonstration at 7.30pm.
