Charlie Ryrie started the business because of her deep love of gardens and traditional flowers. She spent two decades as a journalist writing about gardens, the environment and ecological design, and has always had a passion for flowers. In 2002 she bought a field, and in 2004 started sending out flowers to customers nationwide, and making stunning arrangements for weddings and events.

She is well known for her beautiful and unusual combinations, her unflappability, and genuine love for what she produces.  She works with top events companies as well as providing glorious wedding flowers. She is increasingly in demand as a garden consultant and mentor.
