The New Covent Garden Flower Market plays an integral part in Simon Lycett's life as a florist and has done for the last 25 years. Originally opened in London's Covent Garden in 1670, the Market moved to Nine Elms in Vauxhall in November 1974 and became known as the New Covent Garden Flower Market. Now after more than 40 years it is moving again, to a new purpose-built site in Nine Elms. In The Flower Market Year, Simon Lycett's witty and down to earth observations and Michelle Garrett's stunning photographs, taken over the course of a year of very early mornings in Nine Elms, combine to create a unique record of this historic and idiosyncratic market. Includes images of many beautiful arrangements of seasonal flowers and foliage sourced from the Market.
