Funeral flowers


Natural funeral flowers / Sympathy flowers

Flowers for a funeral should be something special to celebrate and remember.

As an alternative to the traditional funeral flowers, I offer a garden-gathered, relaxed ‘wildflower’ style which really lets the flowers speak for themselves. Always fresh, natural and beautiful, my arrangements can be gentle and reflective or if preferred, lively, bright and cheerful.

A wonderful selection of traditional and delightful English garden flowers are grown on my flower plot. Blooms are selected from my flower plot when they are at their best and will reflect what is in season at the time. Where possible I use my own flowers but will supplement these in the winter and to suit your requirements or requests.

The funeral flower arrangements are sustainable and eco-friendly and suitable for green funerals, eco-funerals, woodland funerals and humanist ceremonies.


Choice of arrangements

If you have ideas and preferences I will be pleased to talk them through with you or send you a leaflet with examples of options and designs available.

The designs are all eco-friendly and will be made without using floral foam. Please let me know if the flowers are for a natural or woodland burial.

I don’t have a shop or studio, just a wonderful plot in Oversley Green, Alcester where the flowers are grown – and my ‘Flower Den’ where the arrangements and designs are made up. Oversley Green, Alcester, Warwickshire, B49 6PG
