About the Author

Anna Potter is the florist behind Swallows and Damsons, based in Sheffield. Her flower shop has 156k followers on Instagram. A very luxe and wild feel that uses containers of all sorts and moves beyond the confines of blooms in her decoration - incorporating foliage, fruit and vegetables, sea shells and most things that grown out of the ground.
