Hello, I’m Liz. I decided to set up Rose Clover when my boyfriend James & I moved to Portsmouth back in 2015. Being people with a love for the outdoors and nature, the hectic fast-paced London lifestyle started to grate, so we traded it in for some sea air (big phew).
Rather than work out of a shop, I run Rose Clover from my studio at home, in the heart of Southsea. This doesn’t mean I am a faceless online company - I am always on the end of my phone, you can ping me emails and I pop up at local markets from time to time. This set up allows me to work closely with you, suppliers and the seasons to ensure you always get the freshest, fairest priced flowers available. I travel to the flower market on the morning of your delivery to hand pick what is needed for your bunch. I’ll never send you anything old.
Choosing a florist for an event can be tough - be it for a wedding or funeral - so if your flower needs are anything more than a bunch for your loved one then I am always available to meet for a friendly consultation where we can discuss ideas and you can decide if I am the florist for you :)
And of course it isn’t just fresh cut flowers I offer, there are loads of great plants, pots and vases too. I am slightly obsessed with air plants (just ask James!) and love to think up new ways to display these beauties. As much as possible, I collaborate with artists and crafters from along the south coast - trying to keep things as local as I can.
