With Chelsea Flower Show on this week, I feel I should be constantly adorned with my favourite floral fancies at all times.

However, bar putting a flower pot upside down on your head, it can often be very hard to the keep these decorative plants in place on your barnet. Cue the fab florists Blossom and Twigs and there top tips for keeping those pretty flowers in place all day!

1. Cut the flower stems to two inches (you can always trim later if they are too long) just before you put them in your hair, and cut the stem at an angle. Give the flower a quick spritz of hairspray and they will stay fresher and more vibrant in your hair for longer.

2. Pin large flowers to the thickest part of the hair if it’s an up-do, or behind your ear or to the side with a kirby-grip if your hair is down. Clusters of smaller flowers are best worn with hair that is up, and should be attached with a grip to follow the curve of the bun or ponytail.

3. Red flowers work well with black hair; lighter coloured flowers go with brown hair; flowers with green stems and centres are good for red hair and blue-toned flowers work with blonde hair; but remember that the flowers should also complement your outfit.

4. Don’t overdo it! Flowers in hair should make a statement, but should also be elegant. You should not look like a walking hanging basket.

I think a quick trip to the florist is in order…
