Dried flowers and dried lavender shop Est. 2002
We have been selling pressed flowers for many years. During that time two long-standing UK suppliers have retired. Does that say more about the fact that pressing flowers has - up until recently - been a dwindling craft in the UK, or does it say more about how long we've been in business?
Luckily pressed flower crafts are experiencing a resurgence! Here are some things you can use them for:
Daisy Gifts Ltd director Ruth has been pressing flowers for many years for her blog at driedflowercraft.co.uk, so when our second supplier retired, she thought it would be better to keep it in-house.
We are now proud to offer our own UK pressed flowers to buy.
We have a wide range of UK blooms and leaves now available - here is a selection but the rangle is constantly changing due to availability and new ideas. They are always road-tested before sale.

The above image and the one at the top of the page show fennel being picked to press and pack.
We do import some packs to fill out our range - these are the ones without the UK in the title. However we tend to stick to natural blooms that have not been dyed as these can be so variable. Pressing our own flowers also means that we have something unusual to offer, that no-one else has (for example the flamingos and trumpets above!).
