Seeds in envelopes as beautiful as their contents
We don’t need flowers. They exist only for beauty and the bees. We need flowers. We mark births, deaths, happinesses and sorrows with flowers. It has been so forever. The only thing better than flowers is seeds. Seeds are the potential for glorious beauty. My cut flower seeds are packed in hand-printed, recycled cotton-rag envelopes. Perfect for giving, sowing, or just for cherishing.
As a psychologist, I understand the emotional connection we all have to hand-made, tactile and natural materials, to colour and textures, to the possibility of growth. An understanding of how humanity needs soil and beauty now more than ever.
My studio was built to house the shelves of seeds and brick-mould boxes of envelopes. It stands at the end of the garden of my 16th century thatched cottage in the Blackdown Hills. I pack my seeds looking out over my orchard and my meadow-planted flower field.
