Saskia Havekes is at the forefront of artistic flower arranging in Australia. Grandiflora is an oasis of beautiful blooms, sculptural branches and lush swathes of foliage at Potts Point in inner-city Sydney. Saskia's large-scale installations and breathtaking arrangements are luxurious and bold, stemming from a deep love and appreciation of nature.

In Flower Addict, Saskia shares some of her favourite floral moments, photographed by Nicholas Watt, who captures all the passion and originality of her work.

Caroline Baum's review

If you love flowers, nature, beauty or art start dropping hints now for Christmas if you want to get your hands on this magnificent book by Sydney-based A-list florist, Saskia Havekes, and her team at Grandiflora.

Dipping flowers in wax or encasing them in blocks of ice, Havekes is always experimenting and pushing the limits, whether working on a small bouquet or on a grand scale for a special event. Her bold ideas about colour, composition and texture demonstrate why she has developed a devoted following in the world of art, fashion and design.

Writing expressively about her vocation, she pays generous tribute to her suppliers, growers and collaborators, her clients from brides to glossy magazines.

This book, covering a year's projects, is a lasting way to extend the pleasure of flowers long after the blooms have faded.
