Here at B&W we create an average of 60 weddings a year. They're not all big, but they're all unique and totally special - a combination of bespoke events and our 'Wild Wedding' packages. Wedding planning can be hard and stressful, we know, so we're devastated for our couples who have the added stress of Coronavirus added to the mix. The excitement is suddenly overwhelmed by anxiety - whilst some weddings for April have been postponed through the lockdown, it's hard to see into the future and know what will come...

In my head, I call our new flower patch 'The Reg Patch.' It was, as I have said before, an immaculate and perfect example of a home veg patch, meticulously managed by my grandfather, Reg. I've felt terribly guilty for years that this once beautiful plot was allowed to be invaded by marauding brambles and thistles, for a number of reasons, but now, finally, the time has come for it to shine, once again. Whilst I am home with my husband Jim in isolation from Covid-19, we're using this time to tackle...

Hello everyone! I thought that I would write a little post on this sunny spring day whilst I am sat pondering what journey I am going to be taken on in the garden this year. I will share my plans for what seeds I am going to sow, some of my favourite plants and also what I am up to at the moment in the garden. [gallery size="medium" columns="2" link="none" ids="7503,7504"] I absolutely love this time of year when I can finally get back out into the garden and feel the...

Hello everyone, happy Monday! Last week we discussed what goes into making a bouquet from Bramble & Wild, so I thought that this week it was only right to explain what to do once your blooms have faded, hopefully in a good week to ten days after you have received them. We know (and hate the fact) that so many flowers around the world are packaged in the P word - PLASTIC. Now, currently we can't help that some of our imported blooms do arrive to us in plastic, but we...

  Hello and happy Wednesday! In today’s #BrambleRamble, we thought we would talk through the process of creating one of our signature wild and wonderful hand-tied bouquets. This is a question that we are asked fairly regularly in the shop and on social media, with many of you intrigued as to how those loose stems transform into a big bouquet of gorgeousness! The first step taken by any florist creating your bouquet is to carefully read or listen to what kind of look you would like us to create with your bouquet,...

Here at Bramble & Wild, we (read; my mum,) have been growing our own dahlias, David Austin roses, sweetpeas and foxgloves for a while. We mainly use these for weddings and events and if you're lucky enough to swing by on a certain day late summer, you'll scoop yourself an armful of freshly cut dahlias for just a few pounds.   [gallery link="file" size="medium" ids="6857,6858,6854"]   My parents, avid gardeners, bought an old nursery a few years ago so theres lots of lovely land for flowers and copious hedges for cutting, but growing is...

Here at Bramble and Wild, we are a close little team and as such, we find that we end up picking up some rather unusual habits, both from each other and from working in our lovely little blue shop. We thought we would compile a list of our little eccentricities to give a some insight into what life is like as part of the #BrambleFam. We’re pretty confident that our fellow florists will be able to relate to several of these; it’s not all ‘playing with flowers’ and snapping beautiful...

  We've been open for nearly 8 years now and this is our first proper blog post! Honestly, where has the time gone? This is something I have really been wanting to put together for years, but something else has always cropped up! I thought that the best way to say hello would be to introduce our shop, (and ourselves, next time!) to those of you who haven't made it into Frome to see us. (We're so so grateful for our lovely instagram community @brambleandwild but realise that you don't all live in...
