Green & Gorgeous are a cut flower grower and florist based on a small farm in South Oxfordshire. Since 2008 they have been cultivating a diverse range of English country garden flowers on their six-acre site and arranging them in the adjoining flower studio. Whether it is to celebrate an event or just to enjoy at home, all of their flowers come straight from the border to your bouquet.
Their freshly picked bouquets reflect the natural beauty and abundance of the cutting gardens whilst their home grown seasonality offers a very different floral experience to conventional florists fare. Their flowers really are a ‘green and gorgeous‘ alternative to the many air miles, damaging pesticides and demand on natural resources that imported flowers can incur. They are grown sustainably alongside vegetables, fruit, chickens, bees and lots of wildlife!
Grower Rachel Siegfried and florist Jo Wise have a partnership that enables them to be inspired by each other and guides them in the range of flowers they work with.
They favour traditional garden varieties filled with perfume, nostalgia and vibrant colour. These fabulous ingredients, combined with their plant knowledge and creativity always results in something refreshingly different and very beautiful.
Their flowers can be enjoyed in lots of different ways: from natural and unique arrangements for your wedding day using their large selection of vases, china, night light holders, cake stands and other bits and bobs, which are all also available for hire.
For the DIY bride they also sell buckets of flowers for you to arrange yourself. Doing this alongside hiring their containers can offer a very cost effective way of achieving an ‘English Country Garden’ style for your wedding or party.
If you want to go even further and grow your own wedding flowers then Rachel can help you learn how to grow easy and productive flowers, timed to be at their best for the big day. They have launched a brand new course which will guide you through the process and give you an opportunity to create some arrangements with our garden flowers to go home with.
Green & Gorgeous are the ultimate florist for brides looking for traditional English flowers and perfect for those who want to DIY their flowers. Check out their website for more information.
