About Sweetpea Flowers, Newark on Trent


I originally trained at Brooksby Melton College where I gained Distinction in BTEC Level 3 National Award in Floristry (and the Best Student Award!).

Having accumulated over ten years’ experience in floristry, both in Grantham and Newark, I was delighted to strike out on my own and open Sweetpea in May 2018. In March 2021, we moved our premises next door to a bigger, light and airy space.  My colleague Bonnie and I aim to offer workshops when Covid restictions ease.  Bonnie has her own calligraphy business, Laney's Lettering.

I love flowers and the impact, impression and difference they can make to someone’s day. I have the skills and knowledge to create designs to suit every occasion, however big or small.
