Emma Harber, 28, recently studied floristry at Shrewsbury College, but from an early age loved flowers.
Now Emma, who does business as Meadow Florist and Market Garden, has set up a pop-up shop which is open Saturdays at Dorrington Village Hall between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Emma said: “I have a photo of me as a young girl carrying armfuls of daffodils in my mother’s garden.
“I trained as a florist and now do something I love.
“I can’t draw so floristry is my art form.
“I love arranging flowers and when I present a bouquet to someone it’s fantastic to see the reaction on their face.
“Last year I started growing my own flowers and have an assortment of many different flowers including snapdragons, dahlias, verbena, sunflowers and gladioli.
“I also have a passion for seeds and summer and spring in Britain offer a lot of beauty, so why not enjoy it on tables and in homes.
“Although I am not against flying flowers out of season and for special occasions, I think if there are wonderful flowers here, why not buy and enjoy the locally produced ones.
“I decided to open the pop-up shop over the Jubilee weekend and it proved very popular and I made my first sale in ten seconds.
“It makes sense to use village halls as a point of sale because it is cheaper than renting premises and it helps to attract people to these buildings.
“The store will be open every Saturday and I hope to add more days over the summer as well.
“I have my own style of arranging bouquets which I would describe as natural because I let the flowers do the talking and if they lean to one side I go with that and then balance the other side.
“I set up at the beginning of June as a self-employed person and I hope to eventually make vegetable boxes.
“At the moment I’m concentrating on the florist side until my husband, Peter, a train conductor, can help me out.”
