Florist of the Year 2022
Elizabeth Newcombe of The Botanical Company, Bramley, Surrey has been crowned Interflora Florist of the Year 2022 in a nail-biting final at RHS Garden Bridgewater in Manchester. She will now go on to represent the UK and Ireland at next year’s
Interflora World Cup 2023, which is being held right here in the UK for the first time ever.
Elizabeth was buzzing with joy as the scores were announced, beating off stiff competition from four other very talented florists. Charlotte Davies of Hilary’s Floral Design, Abergavenny and Caroline Crabb of Fleurtations, Bodmin came in a very close second and third place respectively.
The final took place in front of a live audience with each florist having to complete four tasks devised to test their skills, push the boundaries of their art form and encourage creativity and innovation, all under the theme Growing Together.
Talking about the competition, Elizabeth said, “I can’t believe I’m Florist of the Year, next step is the World Cup. Tonight, we’re going to celebrate, catch up on some sleep and then we’re going to get the designs rolling and the ideas flowing ready for next year.”
