About the Velvet Daisy

There is just something about an English garden

I love the lavish colours, the wonders of an herbaceous border, the slightly wild collections, winding through stone steps and archways, the potential to control something that is so wild and carefree.

My start in flowers began when studying horticulture with the Royal Horticultural Society in London, then moving on to luxury catering and eventually floristry. I have also lived in the States and in the UK, which reflects in my fresh approach. I’ve worked with Prue Leith, Design Council and Jane Packer to namedrop just a few! I’m now 18 years in the flowers world and I couldn’t be happier!
