Based locally in East Oxford, Hilary Squire Flowers began in 2010. A trained florist, Hilary has, over the years, developed her entire garden into a cutting garden. Her aim is to grow and arrange as ethically as possible by only using flowers that are in season, using organic methods, recycling and upcycling pots and vases, and using minimal packaging.
The inspiration for growing and arranging British Flowers came, initially, from Sarah Raven, the well-known gardener and writer. This was followed by learning about the international flower trade and its harmful effects on the environment and people’s lives.
The flowers that are grown are chosen for their suitability for cutting, beauty and fragrance. Sometimes more unusual varieties, that may not be seen in a florist’s shop are grown. Herbs and grasses are also used as well as seed heads, berries and dried flowers. Hilary’s floristry style is natural. Her particular love is colour and she enjoys working with larger, elegant arrangements.
Working with the seasons means that Hilary Squire Flowers is usually at East Oxford Market between April and October and then again, with dried flowers and Winter arrangements, in December.
