Essence of Nature Flowers (formerly Orchard Oast Flowers) grows vibrant, colourful British flowers organically from seed, with much love, to share the wisdom, spirit and energy of flowers and nature through seasonal bouquets, meadow style jam jar posies and free spirited floral designs. We also style flowers for special events, weddings, sacred ceremonies and all sorts of occasions. Our flowers are wildlife friendly, beautifully scented and fill your heart with joy. We blend our seasonal flowers with natural elements such as seed heads, herbs and foraged foliage, combining them with Shelley's many years of studying the healing essence of flowers and the wisdom of nature, to make each order and event completely unique. Our flowers are available from April to October, depending on Mother Nature and her weather. Shelley's unique flower therapy workshops and one to one floral experiences deepen your relationship with flowers, and inspire you with an understanding of nature's healing intelligence. We have won Silver Gilt at the Kent County Show 2018 and 2019, designing a 6m wide x 3m deep display of our British flowers each year. Follow the links on our website page for full details of these displays. We are a private garden in a rural Kent location, delivering locally. Unfortunately, we are not able to have visitors dropping in, but we do welcome guests for one to one flower therapy workshops and bespoke floral days with Shelley.
