I order in flowers from Cornwall and the Dutch Auctions several times a week to meet my customers' specific requests. I am happy to create floral designs or offer wraps of flowers for you to arrange in your home. Listed below are some for floral gift ideas, below which are some beautiful "add-on" gifts to choose from all made by local artisans. All orders are available for no contact collection from my home or doorstep delivery (a delivery charge is applicable)
"SOMETHING FOR HIM" A special promotion from #artisanssupportingartisanssupportingartisans starting on Friday, 21st August until the end of September 2020. For every floral order accompanied by a gift (or two, or much, much more) from the beautiful hand crafted products listed below, 15% of the total cost of your order will be donated to ARC (a mental health counselling charity in Axminster).
I've added some photos of suitable floral & plant gift ideas for men too! Well, I would, wouldn't I? But, if you'd rather treat yourself to some flowers and your man to something else, feel free.

A LITTLE INSPIRATION?
I can provide any floral design you would normally purchase at your local florist but below are just a few staples that are particular to me - please ask if you have something in mind or use the slide show (pause to read prices, etc) if you need a little help in deciding.
IN A HURRY?
Perfect for when you need something here and now (but ideally the next day). A collection of floral gifts using seasonal flowers and foliage from my garden, home grown succulents and/or flowers that have been ordered in excess when available.
THE PLANT SECTION
I very rarely resort to anywhere but my own home or local plant suppliers within a five mile or so radius from my own home. All baskets are supplied by a small family business who take pride in offering only ethically sourced, tried and tested basketware.
A TOUCH OF SILK
For those who are looking for a longer lasting floral design, I make occasional quirky silk designs when inspired by an idea, container, etc.
I am now able to offer gift ideas to accompany your flowers or planted gifts. The items below are all made by West Country artisans I know personally and whose products I have used myself and love. All are individual or small family businesses working from home and passionate about their products.
Sue of The Vegan Organic Skincare Company (www.vosconline.co.uk) My passion for making skincare products is a very personal one. Due to ill health, I was compelled to make drastic changes to my diet and skincare products. As a chemistry teacher, I understand in depth the best combinations of ingredients to use without unnecessary additives, preservatives or chemicals which is why we only use the finest of ingredients. I initially started making bath bombs, body butters and face creams for myself. I shared these products with friends and family and from there interest in my products grew. Our skin is our biggest organ - it absorbs everything we put on it. I like to make sure I feed mine the best I can.
Jo of Beespoke Of Devon (www.beespokeofdevon.co.uk) Only natural wax is used (vegan friendly Soy and Beeswax) along with aromatherapy pure essential oils for my candles. Choose from a variety of aromas to suit your mood or an 'aroma free' candle. All beeswax is sourced locally and left for you to enjoy its natural 'honey' scent.
Liz of Love Earth. Love Me. (Instagram loveearth.loveme) My range of luxurious soaps has been custom made from a carefully balanced mix of nourishing plant oils and fragrances using pure essential oils. Created with respect for our environment whilst indulging our desire for a beautiful sensory experience - each time we wash.
Morgan of Poppy Melts (Instagram & Facebook "poppymelts") I am a young mum working from home in Otterton, Devon and producing, with huge passion, these pretty scented soy wax melts to fill your home or work place with their beautiful scent.
