What a lovely evening we had with you last night, and our members were delighted and enthralled with what you do! It was so refreshing to watch you create the designs from everything out of your garden.

Hello, my name is Susan Dobson and I am a florist and flower grower based at Bradley near Skipton in North Yorkshire.  In 2014 I combined my passions for gardening and floristry to start The Yorkshire Dales Flower Company and provide floral arrangements made from home grown seasonal cut flowers, foliages and herbs.

I have been gardening most of my life and have spent the last twenty years or so developing our garden here at Bradley. It is set amongst glorious countryside and now has mature native trees, hedges, including Hornbeam, Beech and Box, and is overflowing with flowers, shrubs and herbs.  Over the past few years I have changed the layout of the cottage garden at the front of the house, at times to the dismay of my husband, who frequently complained that my plants had legs as they were constantly on the move! I have also incorporated a cutting garden, which is increasing in size.

I have always loved “decking the house out” at Christmas with winter greenery and arranging flowers from the garden, but decided I needed to know much more about floristry before embarking on a flower growing and floristry career. So, a few years ago I trained as a florist and from time to time, still go to workshops and demonstrations, as they are great for keeping up to date and good fun too.

My floristry style is natural and rustic, whilst paying attention to detail. I love to use flowers when they are in season and my style is ideally suited to them. Often the flowers I grow and use are deliciously scented and quite different to those found on the High Street. Whether you require wedding flowers, a bouquet for a special occasion or sympathy flowers, we will take care to make sure they are extra special.
