Hilly of the Valley emerged from a late-awakened love of flowers and a passion for creating beautiful arrangements that make everyone smile with the sheer joy of looking at loveliness.

My flowers are sown and grown in my cutting garden in the Pang Valley in Berkshire. The English weather means that the seasons dictate the flowers I have available – I only use my home grown flowers so every arrangement is different and reflects what is happening in the cutting garden at the time.

The flowers are uniquely different from the mass produced blooms flown thousands of miles around the world that you will find in supermarkets, garages and some florists.

One of the joys of working with flowers is the stunning beauty in every bloom whether it is a much loved daffodil or an ‘in your face’ sunflower.

My aim is to make beautiful creations which everyone will love and which will make them smile…
