An Introduction to English Garden Style Flower Design

A once niche style is becoming a lot more popular as the move for more natural “everything” is the trend these days. The English Garden Style type of arrangement, once mostly used in weddings or more formal occasions, is a design now coveted by everyone – and we don’t blame them. It’s a gorgeous, abundant display of all seasonal blooms arranged in a manner as nature intended. It’s as if you just cut fresh flowers from the English Cottage garden you were just walking through.

English Garden Style Components

When picturing the lush abundance and colorful variety of plants and flowers in an English cottage garden, you’ll notice its irregular, overflowing shape and how Mother Nature has paired things that grow well together. This is the essence of the English garden style. Composed of only plants and flowers that bloom at the same time, this style captures the essence and beauty of things “left alone.” In opposition to the formal and stylized gardens of Victorian estates, the English cottage gardens are overrun, irregularly-shaped, and overflowing with nature’s glorious bounty of blooming plants, flowers, herbs, and vegetables. 

Give someone an enchanting journey through an English garden with a charmingly natural blend of flowers in a classic clear glass vase. They'll be thanking you for weeks for such a grand gesture.

Typically including large, burgeoning blooms such as roses, dahlias, and peonies, along with flourishing vertical accents like larkspur, foxglove, and delphinium, the English Garden style arrangement also has plenty of greenery to add to the lushness and “just from the garden” look. Placed in an oval or round shape, the flower colors range from bright and varied to mostly from a pastel-palette.
