I have just finished a busy Valentine's Day, sending flowers by post, flowers for local delivery and collection. I have had Cornish Tulips, Narcissus and foliages. Also Alstromeria, Corn and Oats from Suffolk and some twigs, foliages and buds from my garden and Somerleyton Hall. I have been so encouraged by the number of customers wanting my flowers and British grown flowers in general. It so heartening to think that people are starting to think about where there flowers have been grown and under what circumstances and by whom...The quality of flowers that came from Cornwall was fantastic. I will have more flowers and foliages for Mother's day and hopefully I will be cutting the first of my home grown scented Narcissus. Please enjoy your flowers and then come back for more!
My story in flowers started as a child growing a tiny patch of London Pride Saxifraga...also known as Whimsey or Look Up and Kiss Me! Fast forward to 8 years ago when I started a City and Guilds training in floristry. I qualified as a florist and then to deepen my growing knowledge and skills I trained in horticulture as well. I trained under a WRAGS scheme at Darsham Nurseries and at Somerleyton Hall. Developing a passion for both growing and designing/arranging British garden flowers, I planted a cutting garden. Having become increasingly concerned about where and how flowers are grown, coupled with a love of British grown flowers. and natural styling, I now specialise in growing and using beautiful British grown flowers to make romantic natural designs. for weddings, events, gifts and much more.
