The Seedling is a celebration of the seasons and permission to love each day and week as it passes despite the busy lives we all lead… The Seedling will live as an evergreen - forever growing on my website and will share ideas to inspire, create & nurture through interviews, features and reviews across lifestyle - from planning, planting and arranging life-enhancing flowers to travel, wellness, interiors, style, cooking and so much more. I will also share what is inspiring me each month in the Willow Loves section.
