Funerals and flowers. I make natural funeral tributes either sheaths, mossed wreaths or even shapes using metal frames and totally natural wreaths made from willow. The shaped metal frames are usually used for topiary so can be planted up later as more permanent features. My customers tell me that these type of natural funeral flowers can be very difficult to find. I can also make tributes using flowers and foliages from the family's garden using plants which have special memories.
Funerals are by their very nature emotional and difficult times and I find that choosing and discussing flowers can be a very therapeutic part of the process. With Christmas coming customers are ordering my wreaths to put on graves. Again this can be a very difficult time for people who have been bereaved and choosing and buying a wreath can be a focus.
Please contact me if you would like to talk to me about a funeral or a wreath for Christmas time.
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.
