Ruth in the garden

Hi I’m Ruth, and I developed an interest in dried flower crafts soon after starting Daisy Gifts Ltd (formed in 2002) . Daisy was initially a general gift shop in the small market town of Hailsham, East Sussex. I very soon put my stock on the internet using my first website www.daisygifts.co.uk and was finding that the dried lavender and Claremont & May home fragrance were outselling everything else. It wasn’t long before Daisy Gifts Ltd was internet only,   selling exclusively dried flowers and home fragrance products.

With all these lovely ingredients to experiment with, I was soon reading up on potpourri making techniques and trying out my own recipes & makes. I am a keen gardener and love natural products so I guess my work & hobbies have merged!

I hope you like this blog and find some of the makes interesting and the tips helpful – do please interact with it by leaving comments or asking questions.
