Wild Flower Arranging and all things Informal with Brigitte Girling of Moss & Stone Floral Design


Jordan Kersten , San Francisco – Lost my Website AND charged me for it – They lost my website’s information, and then when I called to contest the billing they refused to issue a refund. They explained they could not ascertain the answer to my problem because ‘privacy protection’ prevented them from being able to inspect my website. My boyfriend suggested suing them but not worth $150. This business is completely incompetent and has stolen both my time and money. If I could give a worse review than one star I would give it.


If you think Floral Design is all about extravagance and cutting garden favourites, then allow Brigitte Girling – the genius behind Moss & Stone Floral Design – to show you her wilder way of #flowerarranging. Using the #wildflowers from her garden and some she’s grown from seed, she brings a celebration of nature to her designs which is in keeping with her love of the wildlife in her plot.

As Brigitte, Alan Gray (East Ruston Old Vicarage) and Thordis explore her favourite plants of the moment to add informal magic to designs, we also contemplate how formal lines in a garden can be softed by the planting around them.

    what Alan neglected to say was he wears a ladybird suit when moving the ladybirds to his greenhouse lol, Thordis the bees on the stachys could be carder bees but bees will go to the most supercharged with nectar plants at the time then move on once they have gone over, another great vid well done

    Great show! My Erecta looks great in it! The other hedera are cool, too! Very interested!

    Btw: the shrubbish hedera cut from the flowering part is handled under the cultivar name 'Arborescens'.
