About My Business
At vervain we hold the belief that flowers are not about ticking a box on a check list but are about who you are, inspired by something meaningful to you and indicative of the atmosphere you want to create on your wedding day. Vervain provides bespoke wedding flowers, DIY flowers and classes on wedding floristry. Using homegrown seasonal flowers is central to India’s ethos as a florist, where possible it allows her to source the most unusual and beautiful flowers and plants. India has been surrounded by homegrown plants and flowers all her life so it seemed like a natural avenue for India to take when she started Vervain.India grows her flowers on a working nursery with the help of glasshouses, polytunnels and outside beds. All of this enables her to grow a wide and unusual selection of flowers throughout the year. We think homegrown flowers have a unique quality with each twisted stem, bi-coloured or slightly misshapen flower adding character and interest to an arrangement, something that can only be achieved in this way. Each year the patch has grown along with the varieties, new to the patch for 2017 was an old empty polytunnel that has been transformed into a garden full of roses and climbers, along with 8 new long flower beds being created to grow a wide range of perennials and annuals. 2018 will see the launch of a horticultural work experience scheme at the farm from people to come and gain hands on experience of growing flowers, along with numerous exciting floristry classes for all abilities.
