My name is Leanne, I'm the flowery madness that is behind Bumble and wild. Since I was a little girl the outdoors has been a massive part of my life, living on a working farm for many years, there wasn't much time spent without some rather muddy wellies on, but it runs much deeper than that.
Gardening, floristry in particular is in my blood, as they say. My Great Grandma won many awards for her floristry and for the flowers that she grew. Never having met her, since starting a career in floristry many stories of her have been told (I will share them with you one day) I feel so close to her, she is playing a massive part in my flowery world.
In more recent times, my mum, she's a chef by trade, but is super green fingered when it comes to the outdoors, honestly my florist beginnings and flower shop wouldn't be here if it wasn't for her. The knowledge she shares with me in regards to growing are priceless, it's incredible to be sharing something like this with her.
Art is my passion, nature is my first love, it seemed only fitting to match up the two. Over 8 years ago I started my journey into everything flowers and haven't had nice nails since.
I'm passionate and dedicated to gathering flowers in a way that nature created, I'm merely the middle lady making sure these pockets of nature make it into your home, are a part of your wedding day and as a final goodbye to those you love.
Bumble and wild is situated in a quaint little market town called Shipston on Stour on the outskirts of the Cotswolds. Our little independently owned florist is one of many beautiful boutique shops within the town.
Pink walls, eclectic mix of antique furniture and flowers galore, it's a florist shop not to be missed, and one like no other. From fresh, to dried, flowers are what we do. We also offer plants for your home and your garden, along with pots and vases too. There are also a few small, unique gifts to be purchased all handmade by talented independents that live locally to the shop. Bumble and wild is quite literally a little pocket of my imagination for you all to see.
Flowers are one of the most natural elements out there, yet the floristry industry for years has abused this. With more and more evidence to support our ever-changing home to be due to the human population and the way we live especially in the last 20 years. I knew something had to be done. In 2018 I changed the way Bumble and wild would do things from then on. From an absolute NO tolerance when it comes to using floral foam in any of our displays, to growing our own flowers, and when that's not possible I buy from other British growers, increasing my British stock more and more with each season. Every single bouquet of ours is sent out in re-purposed hessian, and tied with natural twine, using a recycled luggage label to advertise our business, that's it and to us and hopefully to you, it's perfect. There is so much we can do, and it starts with us.
Whatever the occasion, whether it be surprising a loved one or putting on a big event we are happy to help. We understand that customers do not always wish to collect orders themselves so require a little extra help in order to get flowers to their desired destination.
Bouquets for delivery start at 25 pounds, deliveries in the town are free of charge and we cover a 10 mile radius for just a little extra.
please call, e-mail or pop in to the shop to place an order or to make an enquiry.
