Natural floristry for the wild and curious in Newport, Bristol, Cardiff and beyond.
Hello, my name is Dorina. It's lovely to see you here. You might have visited my florist shop and flower design studio in Newport Market - where my small but mighty team are consciously crafting designs that tell a story. Our wildly beautiful gift, wedding, funeral and event flowers are created responsively to offer a friendly and personal approach that cares for you (and the planet). Working in harmony with the land and the seasons, we use locally grown cut flowers where possible, planet-friendly materials and techniques – and we love working with sustainable dried flowers, too.

At Dorothy Seed, our core dedication is to synchronize with the seasons and conscientiously reduce our ecological footprint. Drawing on her background in education and horticulture, Dorina takes a deep sense of responsibility in setting a model for minimizing our environmental impact. We prioritize the use of seasonal, locally grown flowers, opt for simple, compostable packaging, avoid bleached and chemically dyed materials, and embrace the use of natural fresh and dried flowers.
"If you need a florist who is passionate about their craft, is kind, and beyond helpful then you should use Dorothy Seed. Dorina was excellent throughout the whole process. She expertly guided me through my options and provided me with the information I needed to make decisions.
I am not the sort of person who ordinarily cares about my flowers but when Dorina brought my bouquet and my bridesmaids' I was so excited, I cried."
