We find out what makes interesting flower folk tick in a quickfire Q&A.



Chanel de Kock is the lady behind the Flower Council of Holland PR activity in the UK. An inveterate traveller – often to be found either diving or on the back of a camel, Chanel used to work In the fashion industry before making the move to floriculture where she brings her love of style, creativity and sometimes barking mad interpretations to the world of flowers. Her highlight of 2016 was probably the massive installation Chanel organised outside the National Gallery, which was featured on The Billion Pound Flower Industry TV programme on Channel 4.
