The Flower Council of Holland promotes flowers and plants to consumers in a number of European countries. In the United Kingdom this is carried out through the platforms Funnyhowflowersdothat.co.uk and Thejoyofplants.co.uk.
No life without plants.
We are simply inextricably bound together. Time to sing the praises of plants. Not just their impressive and sometimes fantastical looks; that would be doing them an injustice. Plants are so much more than just beautiful. They provide us with oxygen, purify the air and remove stress from your body. The endless variations of colour and leaves in all shapes and sizes create a calming and relaxed atmosphere: the perfect basis for a happy heart and plenty of creativity. It comes as no surprise at all to us that this inexhaustible parade of wonders has been a source of inspiration for the worlds of food, fashion, art, design and interiors for centuries.
Come on in and roam through issue two of The Green Gallery and observe, wonder and immerse yourself in green joy. Enjoy the gloriously informal and natural Gathering which is all about the simple things in life. Discover how all the variations of green inspired an enchanting botanical beauty shoot, read the views of the international trend watchers from Trendland about evergreen Hedera, lose yourself in the contemporary and breath taking interpretations of the fabulous historical ‘Day Dream’ by Dante Gabriel Rossetti and examine the moving self-portrait of The Borrowed Nursery.
Let’s all celebrate the beauty of nature.
