I grow cottage garden flowers. Many of the varieties are things you don't find in florist's shops, supermarkets and other places selling flowers. This includes Wallflowers, Sweet Rocket, Honesty, Forget Me Nots, Verbena Bonariensis and Cosmos along with other cottage garden favourites such as scented Narcissus, Larkspur, Sunflowers, Dahlias and garden Roses. My posies contain flowering shrubs for example Forsyth, Winter Jasmine and Honeysuckle.
The flowers I use are true garden flowers in that they are grown in my garden. At busy times I top them up with other British grown flowers.
The result is unique, scented posies, bunches and bouquets which bring a country garden into your home or business or to decorate your event. What could be nicer!
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.
