What’s your most memorable Wild at Heart moment? 


Installing 15ft tall Urns at The National Gallery!



Which varieties of flowers do you like to have in your home?


My personal favourite is delphinium.



What tips would you offer for customers when choosing a bouquet? 


Think about the colours you like; a mass of flowers in the shop can be a little overwhelming, start with colour and allow the rest to lead. 

 


What are your favourite local business’ in Notting Hill? 


Farah Charity Shop - great clothes. I also like to visit the vintage market under the Westway Portobello when I’m not on the stand.

What’s your most memorable Wild at Heart moment? 


Dita Von Teese launched her perfume at Liberty in 2012 and had a press call in front of Wild at Heart, she’s an icon to me so I adored meeting her! After the press call Dita took a posie of pink Wild at Heart peonies with her and carried them around London through her day. 

We also played a part in Disney’s Cruella remake which was filmed in 2019. We dressed the stand in 1970s style with pampas, dried flowers and kitsch flowers to meet Disney’s brief. Emma Stone was absolutely lovely and took a Wild at Heart strawberry vase home after the shoot. 


Which varieties of flowers do you like to have in your home?


I like flowers from my garden; trailing jasmine, trailing ivy, vine, mixed with cultivated bought flowers from Wild at Heart of course!  


What tips would you offer for customers when choosing a bouquet? 


I always say - trust the professional. Be guided by seasonal flower choices and your recipients favourite colours, go with your gut instinct, but ultimately allow the professional to experiment with texture, colour and style to create something truly beautiful for you. 


What are your favourite local business’ in Soho?


It’s actually a Portuguese church on Warwick Street, away from hustle and bustle; I like to go there when I want a moment to reflect amongst the noise. I also love Lina Stores which is an amazing Italian delicatessen, Gerrys Wines & Spirits on Old Compton Street for champagnes and spirits that are hard to find elsewhere. Finally, for an extra special treat - Bob Bob Ricard restaurant, which has a button at every table that you can press to request champagne!
