Meet Gretel

seed sower. flower grower. nature lover. 



'Doing the flowers'

My first love was nature. It inspires, heals and brings joy to every day.

After years spent teaching young children, I found myself thinking of open spaces, quiet corners and the need to re-connect with nature.

My floral creations are inspired by the flowers and foliage that each season brings,  creating floral arrangements that are a true reflection of what is happening on my cutting patch and in my garden. I also buy from trusted local flower farmers who grow on a larger scale, and understand my style, giving me a greater choice of flowers and foliage.

I use traditional techniques which gives a fluidity to arrangements and avoids the use of floral foam.


In addition to my own floral commissions, I work as a freelance florist, enjoying the variety this brings and making good friends along the way.

I am a member of 'Flowers from the Farm'. This nationwide organisation promotes a low carbon approach to floristry and supports small and independent flower growers and florists who take a 'slow' approach.

If you are looking for a sustainable florist for your special day, who will listen to your ideas, and translate your floral dreams into reality, then contact me for a consultation.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Testimonial: Jenny May & Matt
"Thank you so much Gretel for making my flower dreams a reality. You totally understood the brief and gave brilliant advice on which flowers were in season, and how to pull the look together. I loved my bouquet and the flower crown was just perfect. The table flowers were amazing and thank you for the extra flowers for our cake."
