Win: A £28 letterbox bouquet from Wild Clover, Ely
To celebrate the launch of Wild Clover Flower Company's new letterbox delivery service, we've got two box bouquets to give away
Describing her style as “wilder, informal and abundant with blooms”, Alli Clover is the brains behind Ely’s new Wild Clover Flower Company. It’s fair to say floristry is in Alli’s DNA: her mum was a florist and school holidays were spent helping in her workshop; she got her first flowering job at 13 as a Saturday girl; then she trained in the trade and went on to manage a Cambridge flower shop.
But a career change saw Alli spend the next 23 years in fashion and beauty retail management. “I worked for incredible brands, such as Tom Ford, Estee Lauder, New Look, Phase Eight. . .” she says. “But I was still asked to flower weddings and other occasions along the way. And each and every time I realised just how much I missed working with flowers.”
Favouring British-grown flowers and foliage where possible, Alli now delivers gift bouquets in Ely, Newmarket and Cambridge and creates wedding and occasion flowers across Cambridgeshire, Suffolk, Bedfordshire, Norfolk and Essex. The latest addition to her Wild Clover collection is letterbox flowers, which can be purchased as a one-off or subscription. To mark the launch of the service, two Velvet readers will each win a large letterbox selection this month - worth £28.
