Let Nature In! Every week is a brand new composition using the best in season British, homegrown and locally sourced flowers and foliage.
Sophie trained in floristry in New Zealand, ran a wedding flower business in London, as well as having a long career in nature conservation. After moving to Bournemouth, Dorset with a young family, Sophie created MeadowSweet Posies as a way to combine these two passions and celebrate the diversity and beauty of British, seasonal flowers.
Each week, Sophie seeks seasonal inspiration from nature to include gems in her posies that reconnect us with the outside world. At different times of the year she might include catkins, snowdrops, cornflowers, sweet peas, berries and many other ingredients that you won't find on any high street!
She enjoys the challenge and natural restriction of using British seasonal flowers and foliage, and believes this makes for authentic, honest arrangements that encourage us to admire and connect with nature, and therefore to care about it.
Sustainability is at our core
We source flowers as close to home as we can. Flowers are homegrown, from other Dorset flower growers, and from larger growers in Cornwall, Suffolk, Norfolk and Lincolnshire and Isles of Scilly. Foliage is from England and occasionally also Ireland. Sourcing flowers this way eliminates air-miles associated with imported flowers and helps to keep a low carbon footprint. British grown flowers typically have a 90% lower carbon footprint than imported blooms.
Our posies come in UK-made glass jars made with over 33% recycled glass content. Cardboard is unbleached and made with recycled content. Stickers and flower food sachet packets are plant-based. Flower stems for our UK deliveries are kept fresh in natural clay-based clear transportation gel that can be safely composted or rinsed down the sink.
Posies are delivered to London and Mainland UK on Fridays by our Tracked 24 service. Please provide information on where courier can leave parcel safely (somewhere cool and dry) if the recipient is not going to be in during the day.
Orders can be taken up until 11pm Wednesday for that week's Friday delivery (unless we've sold out and you will be notified!). Orders placed after this time will be sent out the following Friday. For subscriptions, posies will be sent every 4 weeks (one posy for 1 month, three posies for 3 month subscription, six posies for 6 month subscription).
