Welcome to Dove Cottage Flowers.

The smell of sweet peas as you walk past; peonies just before they bloom; Lily of the Valley and apple blossom.  These all make my heart sing.

Whilst working in the City, I long dreamt of setting up my own floristry business.  I relished the time I spent visiting Wisley, Kew and the Isabella Plantation whilst gardening in whatever free moments I could capture.  Then, an arresting brush with cancer, made me rethink my priorities.  And since then, I’ve focused on creating a business that both gives pleasure to others and provides much more fulfilment to me than working in the City ever did.

I run Dove Cottage Flowers from my home in Ampthill; with chickens and tortoises roaming free in the garden and a dovecote in pride of place.  My floral style is to create blends of colours into arrangements and bouquets which enhance a home.  Pinks, blues, whites and lime greens are my ‘go to’ colours, and I love to integrate herbs, such as fresh mint and rosemary, into my bouquets.  But I always work with a customer to choose what most suits them and the occasion for which they are choosing flowers.

Do get in touch if you would like to have a conversation about any floral arrangement or planting for your garden or window.


With best wishes
