Maurice Wynne is the award-winning designer at Mad Flowers, which offers creative bouquets for all occasions. The business is in his blood. His grandmother sold flowers on Dublin’s Moore St, while he remembers helping out in his parents’ florist, Wynne’s Flowers in Drumcondra, from the age of six.

“Flowers have treated me well,” says Maurice, whose achievements include medals at Chelsea, Hampton Court and Bloom. “I’ve taught or demonstrated or worked in over 40 countries.”
