Little Wild Flower was started by me, Gemma in 2020, but it is very much a family business. Flowers have always been a big part of my life and I have been growing my own cut flowers for about 10 years.
I am passionate about British flowers, with their wonky stems and unique look, I love that no two are ever the same. Growing each flower from a little seed and watching them flourish into the ingredients that go into our bouquets is a real joy.
Being sustainable is very important to us and it is something we are always educating ourselves on and striving to improve. Our flowers are grown in peat free compost or homemade where possible and we do not use any pesticides in an effort to protect the surrounding wildlife. It's fascinating watching the bees buzzing around our blooms, I could sit for hours.
My floristry style is natural and very much inspired by the seasons. Foam free techniques are used in all of our designs and our bouquets are wrapped using hessian, which is biodegradable and compostable. The jars that we use for our jam jar flowers are ones that we recycle, so they will always have that individual look but still be bursting with blooms.
