Flora and I met early on in Flourish's shop timeline, bonding over our love for plants, wine and both being teachers and it's been a great little work/friendship ever since!
Flora has created a great and unique brand which she is now endeavouring to do full time, as well as run a shop in the Old School Collective out in Waikuku!
It's a pleasure to stock Flora's products in Flourish with microgreen seed packs, grow kits and flower seed packets, there's something for all types of gardeners.

What led you into creating your product?
I had a fear that the art of gardening was dying out and I needed to keep that alive. Then a friend asked if I could make something in the gardening space like a wee gift box for her shop, Ruby Six. I thought about it and then didn't do much for about a year and then I started a prototype and launched 2 weeks later.
Describe your studio/creative space:
We have a small office/warehouse space in Amberley. It isn't super pretty but it is very functional.
Your favourite piece:
I love the Cocktail Herb Kit. It's so fun and can be a great gift for so many people.
A favourite place in NZ:
I don't think I could pick a favourite! I love so many parts of NZ. Motunau, Marehau Abel Tasman, Gore Bay would be my top picks.
A memorable meal:
My Mum's lasagne is my faaaav!
