On a quiet Dickensian cobbled yard in Kennington, South London, the passionate team at Jam Jar Flowers pull seasonal flowers into relaxed and natural arrangements for clients such as Chiltern Firehouse and Spring restaurant in Somerset House. Individuals can also order bespoke bouquets. Owner Melissa Richardson, known for her relaxed arrangements in pickle and jam jar containers, believes in the beauty of natural flowers.
At the workshop in Kennington, Melissa runs a number of evening and day classes. These fun workshops teach technical skills: how to cut, arrange and look after flowers. This is where to go if you’d like to learn how to manage flowers and gain a general understanding of how to make flowers look great.

We’ve rounded up a few of our favourite arrangements from Jam Jar Flowers to inspire you in these spring months.
