Fan of florals? Then you already know the best bouquets are grown, picked, and packaged a mile down the road – lucky for you then, Coombe Bissett Blooms, based just outside Salisbury, crafts super-luxe beautiful blooms.
Flower grower Caroline Welfare plants and nurtures every seed into a flower without using pesticides (though admittedly, with the help of a few bees), then styles them into creative wreaths, wedding garlands, tabletop bouquets, and even stunning flower crowns. The first thing you’ll notice about Caroline’s arrangements, after gawking at how gorgeous they are, is that no two bouquets are the same. And that’s no accident – she grows each batch seasonally starting with Springy bulbs in March, then popping peonies in Summer, transitioning to autumn’s dahlias and winter’s Chrysanthemums. This isn’t like store-bought all-year-round roses, Caroline’s process is sophisticated and super sustainable.
Sending thank you cards in 2023? Get with the times, lady! You can collect fresh ‘thank you’ flowers directly from Cross Farm or opt for delivery straight to your home. Even better, Caroline offers weekly, bi-weekly and monthly subscriptions for as little as £25. You can spruce up your interiors without lifting a finger.
Bride to be? Well, why didn’t you say so? Coombe Bissett Blooms is a powerhouse in the wedding world and recently nabbed two Hitched awards for their stellar arrangements. Book a consultation to map out your vision (everything from colours, form, style and quantities), and Caroline will sort the rest – even if that means growing that perfect flower just for your big day.
Finally, do not miss her brilliant wreath-making workshops (book asap or suffer FOMO) on Sat 2, Sat 9 and Sat 16 Dec, with two slots every day (10 am and 3 pm) for £40.
