Here are some information pages from around our shop – these are articles not shown in the main menu.
Dried flower bunch
Choose a dry bunch by colour – our catalog is listed by colour as well as flower type to keep things simple!
Dry wildflowers – informal blooms which give that natural meadow look. Cottage garden bunches – dried flowers with a traditional feel.
From our own Sussex workshop – we dry a lot of flowers ourselves during the summer months – best choice May to October.
Choosing a bunch – blooms, grasses and seed heads for home decor, weddings and your own hand-tied bouquets and arrangements. Hand-tied bouquets – we have reduced our range of these but some bunches still make a great gift – just add ribbon!
How flowers are dried – find out more about how your bunches and petals were produced, and how much is doable at home.
Choosing dry lavender grains – we think our lavender is some of the best you can get for making lavender bags, sachets and potpourri. It mixes well with soothing chamomile or relaxing hops for aromatherapy, or even rose petals for a fragrant confetti.
