When it comes to using vegetables to enhance her floral arrangements – Chardstock woman Charlotte Heavisides certainly knows her onions

She was amongst a group of local ladies who celebrated the start of autumn at a flower arranging workshop at Combe St Nicholas Village Hall.

Making a colourful harvest festival design, their arrangements featured rich autumn colours, foliage, berries, fruit, vegetables, seed heads and more.

Before starting work, the group watched a step-by-step demonstration by their tutor Jackie Nicholls.

Amongst plenty of fun and laughter, she showed them the latest techniques for using fruit, flowers, foliage and vegetables within their arrangements. She also gave lots of useful tips and tricks from the trade.

Charlotte Heavisides said: “I was really pleased with the design I made. I enjoyed learning how to use fruit and vegetables in my arrangements and will definitely be recommending these workshops to my friends.”

Jackie, from Ashville Design, in Somerset, who runs the workshops said: “Charlotte continues to build on her flower arranging skills and had great fun adding fresh chillies, cherry tomatoes, sprouts, radishes, apples and lemons to her design.

“I’m so proud of everyone who came, they all did so well. I can’t wait for the festive fun at our Christmas workshops!”
