About

Ruth Oversley Flowers

Warwickshire flowers – locally grown

Hello I’m Ruth – I have a flower plot and a little dream. I love to work with the seasons and the wide variety of British flowers to bring fresh flowers to local people and local businesses!

When I am most happy is in the flower field in my welly boots, digging, sowing seeds, selecting and picking flowers, observing and reacting with nature.

My passion for flowers has developed more than I ever envisaged, I love being creative with flowers.

Flowers can be collected by arrangement from the flower plot in the heart of Oversley Green, Alcester (B49 6PG)  near Stratford upon Avon, Warwickshire or delivered locally.

Seasonal, scented and home grown British flowers

A wide variety of summer flowers and foliage are specifically selected  so they last well in the vase, have a lovely long stem length, include the English country garden favorites and some interesting new varieties and colours.

Flowers are at their best in the right conditions, often influenced by day length and/or temperature.

So in the British climate in cool temperatures of spring it is the tulips, narcissi, ranunculus and anemone are at their best.

As it warms up and we have lovely long summer days cosmos, snapdragons, cornflower bring a riot of colour.

At the end of summer and the autumn draws in the rich autumn tones dahlias, zinnia, strawflowers and  chrysanthemums

The flowers are carefully selected to ensure  there is a beautiful collection of colours, scent and textures  throughout the season from April through to the frosts in October.

sustainable flower growing

Eco-flowers

I am passionate about the environment and believe strongly in sustainability, biodiversity and low carbon and low travel miles. It is my pleasure to grow flowers without any chemicals – no herbicides, insecticides, fungicides or artificial fertilisers. My plot is a haven for bees, butterflies and ladybirds and allows nature to keep the balance.

Our two bee hives share the flower garden, they too like the variety of flowers and benefit from no chemicals – and on good years we will also be able to share the honey!

Care for the environment

The business practices are being refined and improved all the time to reduce any impact on the environment;

  • minimal packaging which can be composted or recycled
  • sustainable floral designs without using floral foam or cellophane
  • organic growing methods are used on the flower plot without artificial fertilizers or chemicals
  • care for the soil with all green waste material is composted on site and put back onto the flower beds the following year
  • dried flowers are naturally dried without bleaches and dyes
  • flowers which are locally grown, not flown
  • local delivery by electric vehicle

Please save your large coffee jars and pickle jars….. I can recycle them!
