YOU don't need to be a professional florist to enjoy creating floral arrangements using fresh flowers from your own garden, and this compact book of inspirational ideas is a good place to start.

Jane Packer's FlowersBased in London, Jane Packer is one of the world's leading florists. Her bouquets are always surprising, even though many are also extremely simple - such as this charming collection of old glass bottles with spiky sea holly and spires of pink veronica.

Flowers is divided into four chapters: chic City style; natural Country arrangements; ocean-inspired Sea bouquets; and clever ideas for special occasions in the Garden.

This is lovely little book to dip into achievable floral fun.
