Hi, I’m Victoria.

Flower farmer/ floral designer at Origin. With a love of all things local, sustainable and seasonal. Wild and natural flowers are my passion with every bunch and bouquet having that ‘just picked’ garden look.  Specialising in weddings and floral classes with flowers grown in our flower field.

How It Started

I’m often asked if I always had a love of gardening or if I have always been into flowers. Thing is, it was growing vegetables that I really loved. After growing vegetables for a few years with the team at Origin, we realised that we needed to grow some flowers to attract pollinators.

So we grew some annuals in the polytunnel and when they were in flower I realised how amazing the scent and varieties were, like nothing I had ever seen in a supermarket or florist shop. I started giving bunches of flowers to friends and got hooked. Once you’ve grown your own sweet pea you can’t go back!

So my love of wild and natural flowers was born and each season I get excited to see what new varieties I will grow. There’s nothing more exciting than planting seeds in the polytunnel in February and seeing them in full bloom in July. Each year we grow more flowers, do more weddings and have more classes. From giving little posies to friends to running floral classes it’s been an exciting journey.

January is the month for all things planning and sorting. We don’t do posies in January, instead spend our time prepping for the year ahead. Our posies are available in mid-February again when the Spring flowers make an appearance. This could be slightly earlier this...

It’s been a while since I’ve written any updates but here’s to 2020 and keeping you all in the loop with all the flowery happenings at Origin. It’s now January, cold and grey & the Christmas lights seem like a distant memory. I actually love this time of year....
