About My Business
Hello, my name is Annie Thompson and I live in Skirling, a small village in the Scottish Borders close to the border with South Lanarkshire and approximately 24 miles south west of Edinburgh. I am an artisan flower grower selling beautiful seasonal, scented and fresh British home grown cut flowers for any and all occasions including birthdays, christenings, weddings, anniversaries, corporate events and memorial/funeral flowers. The garden here has evolved over the years since we moved here in 2003. I started growing flowers for cutting and arranging in 2014 and garden on about 1/3rd acre, however I am using more and more garden for cut flowers, you can never have enough! Our seasonal flowers, foliage and herbs are available from April through to October, weather dependant. The majority of the flowers used in our floristry are grown here in the garden although I can where necessary source British grown flowers from other suppliers around the country. Our style is rustic and natural with a picked straight from the garden feel. The variety of flowers we grow from both the cutting garden and polytunnel offers a colourful, vibrant and country cottage nostalgic feel. Your flowers will be unique to you and quite different to those available on the High Street.
If you are planning a DIY wedding I can supply the flowers for you to create your own beautiful and unique wedding flowers following your style and theme. This DIY option is great for creative people who want to try their hand at arranging their own flowers or for a talented family member who wants to be involved in your big day.
Alternatively you can do the posies for the tables and we can provide bouquets and buttonholes.
We are honoured to be asked to arrange natural floral memorial/funeral flowers for a loved one and would be happy to discuss your wishes to create a natural and sympathetic arrangement and, where possible, use flowers from their own cherished and much loved garden.
For florists interested in using seasonal, locally grown flowers for your customers please get in touch with me and I can arrange for you to receive a regular wholesale availability list.
If you are looking for a simple yet beautiful posy or hand tied bunch of flowers as a last minute thank you instead of the usual gift of a box of chocolates, then there is a small flower stall outside our house in Skirling during the growing season.
Please get in touch to discuss your flowery needs.
