Fleur McHarg is a florist in the true, traditional sense of the word. Guided by the eternal wisdom of Constance Spry, the trailblazing early-20th-century British florist, Fleur believes in letting flowers be the stars of the show by working with the natural shape of a flower or branch. When it comes to beauty, you can't beat nature - but you can learn how to showcase it for startling impact.

Fleur has cultivated a lifelong obsession with colour, beauty and flowers. Here, she shares her astute flower philosophy, including:

- Over 30 of her favourite flowers and how to use them
- Why some combinations work and others don't
- How to select a base and blend colours for a flower arrangement

The Flower Expert is a stunning celebration of Fleur's artistry and her ability to fuse modern and classic to create a style that suits each occasion.
