Hi, I'm Alli Clover I'm an experienced, creative independent florist based in the beautiful city of Ely, Cambridgeshire.
It's fair to say my love affair of all things floral started young, holidays were often spent with my Mum (also a florist) in the workshop, looking to see what I could find on the floor and make something.
I was "greening up" before the age of ten and was delighted to be offered my first "Saturday" job for what was the largest florists in Cambridge at the time. Here I worked with some incredibly talented people and continued to learn gaining a diploma, before managing a flower shop for another business- a dream come true.
Even my first trip away with my husband involved a stop to visit the beautiful Keukenhof gardens in the Netherlands to see the tulips!
After having a "break" from floristry- having two boys, a long career in senior retail management working for some incredible companies, including luxury brands with service as well as a eye for detail at the forefront of every role.
During this time there were a few weddings and events thrown in along the way and it dawned on me just how happy I was in the workshop.... so the Wild Clover Flower Company was born and every now and again I get the chance to work with my Mum!
Over the years I have been given the great privilege to plan & create floral designs to mark important events in so many peoples lives including Courtship, Weddings, Births, Christenings and the loss of loved ones to convey an expression of feelings.
I have also have produced floral installations and displays for all different types of venues, hotels and corporate businesses for conferences, product launches and new store openings .

Some plants and flowers are obviously poisonous to pets for example poison ivy and some lily types.
But pet owners maybe surprised to find out that cats and dogs may become sick or suffer skin irritations eating many common plants and flowers.
