"Welcome to Blooms at Borrowdale"

Working from my home, "Borrowdale" & garden workshop based on the fringes of the Lincolnshire Wolds in the village of Holton Le Clay, 

I run my Floristry business & passionately teach all aspects of 

Floristry & Floral Design


Winning many awards for my floral designs including an RHS GOLD Medal and having qualifications and many years experience in horticulture, floristry, teaching and demonstrating, my life really does evolve around flowers.  It's a wonderful world to be a part of, what could be better than designing with floral materials and bringing pleasure to others, whether customers, students or members of an audience.  

Spreading the joy is really what it's all about, enabling people to get in touch with their creative side and igniting interest and enthusiasm.  

There are so many ways to enjoy flowers and get involved so why not start your own journey today.....you never know where it may take you.

Love to Learn

Teaching is my passion and is a large proportion of my weekly life, I meet new people and continue to enjoy the company of those that I have taught and continue to teach in many aspects of this craft.

As a tutor I also Love to Learn and I gave myself the opportunity to travel to Belgium to attend workshops with three International Floral Designers, Annick Mertens, Geert Pattyn and Moniek Vanden Berghe. 

 This was a truly amazing experience that I will never forget and hugely inspiring.


It is very important for me to continue to work hard to learn new skills and gain inspiration from many places. 

 It keeps things interesting and the creative fires burning!


Following the trip ECT asked for an interview with me to discuss all things floral
