Ingredients sheet

Locally sourced ingredients We are proud to do things differently at MeadowSweet, and our posy ingredients sheet is one of the differences that stands us apart from other flower subscription services. Each week our posies are delivered with information about what's inside and where it's come from (printed on 100% recycled paper of course!). Our customers and gift recipients find it informative and educational to see how many different and unusual British ingredients we use throughout the year. What's in the posies? Typically, our posies have around a dozen ingredients and our sheet will tell you what they all are and where in the UK they are grown.  What's fragrant? All fragrant or scented flowers and foliage are identified on...

As British as Barney!

Sophie at MeadowSweet is helping him out by making bespoke dog-friendly, non-toxic bunches of British blooms. If your pampered pet has a special occasion coming up, do get in touch!

It's going to be all white

 British flowers and foliage I thought I'd steer clear of Halloween themes with this calming bunch of neutral flowers and foliage. If you are trying to make some sort of Halloween for the kids this weekend perhaps you're joining in the pumpkin trail so they can DIY their own sweets when they find them. My son said at least he'll get the sweets he likes that way! Now that the Halloween wreaths are out the way, I'm starting to think about Christmas wreaths and I'll be taking orders soon on the website. What's in the posy? Campanula, chrysanthemum, honesty, heather, pittosporum, eucalyptus, ranunculus, senecio What's fragrant? Eycalyptus
