A fresh start
Wild Rose Flowers have uprooted and excitement is in bloom.
Established in Kilmacolm in 2013 by owner Rosie Leslie and senior florist Sally Watson, Wild Rose is an independent flower company which has recently moved from their point of origin to new premises in bustling Hillington Park. As they embark on this exciting new chapter, Rosie informed us of the ethos that guides them and the expertise that they’ve cultivated over the past 7 years.
“The focus for this move has been to widen our market, with Hillington being an ideal base to be accessible to central Scotland for weddings and events, provide a larger space for storage and workspace and expand our online business. On top of that, it’s a suitable venue for small events. Ideal for product launches and meet-up, it will be available to rent for this purpose during the year.
“Our floral style is wild and rustic,” she continued. “We use a lot of fresh foliage and by doing so, we try to bring a bit of mother nature indoors. Sustainability is of huge importance to us and we do not use any floral foam in our products which is highly toxic to the environment and massively oversaturated within the industry. Favouring natural methods for our arrangements, this minimises the use of plastic in our products and whenever possible, we source flowers that are homegrown in the UK.
“With Mother’s Day fast approaching on the 22nd March, we have a selection of bouquets available to order online at our website. In addition, we’re also holding a hand-tie workshop from our studio on 21st March which is a lovely gift for mum, daughters, aunties or friends.”
