The Devon Cottage Gardener
Bringing the delight of the cottage garden in to your home, wedding, event or business
Hello. I am Hilary aka The Devon Cottage Gardener.
I grow and arrange luxury, sustainably grown, seasonal, exquisite, cut and dried cottage garden flowers and grasses for weddings, events, businesses and homes. The flowers are all nurtured in my Cottage, Cutting and Prairie Gardens established on our two-acre garden and paddock in Allerford in 2017.
I am inspired by the natural beauty of the countryside within the 'Golden Triangle' of Okehampton, Launceston and Tavistock. This reflects in both my style of floristry and the way that I grow all of the flowers and foliage.
I am passionate about preserving the flora and fauna surrounding me. Seeds from the wildflowers in our hedges and paddock are collected and scattered each year to help rejuvenate the banks and wildflower areas. All of my flower borders have been established using the 'no dig' method in an effort to support biodiversity and encourage as much wildlife and insects into the garden as possible.
As well as growing the flowers, I love working with clients to achieve their vision for a wedding or event. Clients tend to work with me when they wish to be invested in the whole cycle of their flowers - from seed to event, coupled with a sustainable agenda.
Please do take a look in the 'Menu' for more information on the Wedding and Events service and you will also find a 'Wedding Gallery' showing some images from this year's weddings.
