The Botanical ABC is a floral expression of the alphabet. All of our products are illustrated with images of original watercolour paintings by Lavinia Thomas.

I've been making gifts for ever - a painted pebble, chutney perhaps - some more successful than others. But I know nothing beats a present filled with individuality, thoughtfulness and affection. That’s the thinking behind The Botanical ABC which sprang to life from a floral name painting for a special little girl born five years ago.

It has since blossomed into a business with a simple concept at its heart: to paint alphabets with each letter illustrated by a flower whose name begins with that letter, with their petals and leaves teased into shape.

After many days and nights at the kitchen table the first series of flower letters of The Botanical ABC was complete. This series is called ‘Common & Familiar Names’. I like the quirky mix of formal botanical art mixed with the mischevious twistery of the letter design. And, they fit with the sort of 'modern vintage' design which I love.

All The Botanical ABC goods are created to be unique gifts or delightful indulgences. Everything we sell is of superb quality and is set to become an instant heirloom.

The ethos at the heart The Botanical ABC is to create beautiful goods of which we are proud and sell them with the best customer service we can deliver. Every order is personal.

We do our best to be environmentally responsible and socially ethical in all we make and do. A part of the profit of each sale goes to support three small charitable organisations: Bethany Homes Trust, Camp Kernow and Little Big Africa.
