I have three main passions, which are watercolour painting, gardening, and cooking, so one day I thought why not combine them. I discovered watercolour painting nearly 3 years ago and I had no idea how much it would affect my life. I have started to look at nature and its colours in a different way, which has made me more aware of how beautiful things are often missed around us. Along this journey, I have gained more confidence and a new direction in life.
Back in April, due to lockdown, I could not go to the garden centre like I normally do to pick up my usual flowers to make my garden look nice. Instead, I had to find an alternative. I have bought loads of herbs and flower seeds and planted them into pots. I realised it brought me so much joy and happiness to see them grow that I wanted to bring in this exciting new experiment to my brand as well.
I want to live a more conscious, sustainable life and with this in mind, I have started to get frustrated with the number of cards that end up in the bin as we can't keep them all right?! I have decided to look into an eco-friendly option, which led me to find the plantable paper embedded with wildflower seeds. Since the launch I have never looked back, people just love the idea that they can give a card and gift at the same time. I also wanted to make most of my cards made to order so people can customise the wording to suit their needs, to make it even more special.
As I'm a huge bee-lover and I would like to help to increase their population in as many ways as I possibly can. I'm constantly thinking of developing new products so I can offer a wide variety of plantable products for people who are looking for an eco-friendly gift to give to their friends and family for birthdays, Christmas or just because they want to let them know that they are thinking of them. My latest editions to the shop are wildflower seed bombs. They make the perfect favours for people that are having baby showers or weddings soon and want to surprise their guests with a more meaningful gift. It could also make an excellent thank you gift for your customers to make them feel even more appreciated if you are a small business owner. It would also be ideal for people who are not confident gardeners and would like to try growing wildflowers n an easy way.
