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, also has her own calligraphy business, Laney's Lettering, which is based at Sweetpea. Flower Workshops and Calligraphy Workshops will be available all year round, please enquire for details.

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.
