Seasonal British flowers

Flowers grown on your doorstep will be picked when they are at their very best, just before your special day. Each season offers a very different selection of flowers and foliage and can add impact on a large scale at a great value.

As there is none or very little packaging and transport involved, this ensures absolute freshness and minimum carbon footprint. Let’s not forget the choice of many unusual and heirloom varieties of flowers available from British growers, many of which have beautiful scent.

Floral design on the wild side

Because we like our floral designs to evolve with the seasons, we can often be found foraging in the surrounding countryside, gathering hedgerow goodies such as scented blossoms, herbs, wild fruit and berries, twigs and vines. Add to this, arching branches of autumn leaves, flowing grasses and interesting seedpods you get an idea of the distinctive, natural style that defines Botanika.

If you are keen on using foliage and flowers from your friends’ and family’s gardens, we would be happy to incorporate these into your display. This can add a wonderful personal touch when it comes to large scale and abundant designs.

Our Sussex flower plot

I am growing a selection of plants with interesting foliage, texture or trailing habit to add interest to our arrangements. They are perfect for creating that natural, flowing, just picked look. The wish list for our favourite unbuyables is ever growing and we are planning to further develop our nearby plot. Please check our blog for updates on this soon.

Botanika and the environment

We reduce the environmental cost of transport by growing our own flowers, foraging responsibly and using local growers where possible. All our flowers and foliage are grown naturally, without the use of chemicals and we recycle all green waste created in the design process. We are keen on using florist materials from sustainable sources.

We love adding sustainable products to our flowers from other small British artisan makers, such as hand dyed, organic silk ribbons that so beautifully complement our natural bouquets.
