We are always incredibly proud of our Head Gardener Penny Hemming's floral creations which decorate The Field Kitchen restaurant. It's the thing our guests comment on most often, second only to the food. Which is why we are delighted that Penny is going to share her wealth of knowledge in this hands-on practical floral workshop, where guests will create a beautiful fresh flower arrangement to take home with them at the end of the day.
Guests will have the chance to learn some handy tips and tricks to help create stunning fresh flower arrangements using flowers gathered from The Riverford Field Kitchen garden, before getting hands-on to create a fresh arrangement to take home.
