“We bring the joy of beautiful, natural flowers into people’s lives”, explains Sophie Townsend, owner of MeadowSweet. “Our weekly posies are a celebration of the story of the seasons. A gentle way to feel connected to nature throughout the year.”
Being part of nature is something that Sophie feels passionately about. With a career in wildlife conservation, environmental factors are an important part of the business. “We avoid using the air-freighted blooms to keep a low carbon footprint but also so our posies have a real connection to the outdoors. Packaging has been designed for reuse and recycling and composting of green waste is all part of the service for regular customers.
Every week’s posy is an unique design using the best of British flowers. Blooms are often softer, garden varieties filled with nostalgia and. Think snowdrops, bluebells, sweet peas, cornflowers, scented roses and dahlias.
Posies arrive in a vase of water, ready to display. They are the perfect size to pop straight onto a coffee or bedside table. Currently, a regular MeadowSweet posy service is available with free delivery to Bournemouth, Christchurch, Poole and Ferndown.
A variety of subscription options and gift vouchers are available. For further information, see the website, www.meadowsweet.co.uk or follow Sophie on Facebook or Instagram at ‘MeadowSweet Posies’.
