My name is Dorina and together with my partner Rupert, we run Dorothy Seed Ltd. We are a florist shop and floral design studio in Newport, Gwent and have a stall in the refurbished Market; selling both fresh and dried flowers.
I have always loved being outdoors, and having spent the last decade working with young children as an Early Years and Forest School Practitioner, it was wonderful to share this passion with my students.
However, I have always wanted to work with flowers, from growing and harvesting them to creating beautiful, loose and naturally styled arrangements. I enjoy using different textures and shapes and focussing on using natural materials, sustainable methods and eco-friendly items in my designs.
Having become increasingly aware that a huge quantity of flowers are imported, I have decided that where possible I will purchase British, locally grown, and seasonal produce. Seasonally grown flowers have beautiful colours and scents, adding individuality to each bouquet and arrangement.
We create bespoke arrangements for special occasions or even just to brighten up your home! Please come and visit us at the shop, or contact us by phone or email to talk about any ideas.
