About Amber Delahooke and Mai Yamazaki
Amber and Mai have been working together for 3 years now. Amber is chiefly responsible for growing and sourcing the flowers and materials locally, while Mai is the chief florist.
Mai trained as a florist in Tokyo, and has worked in South Wales for many years alone, before teaming up with Amber.
"I always wanted to find somebody who could grow lovely flowers for me" says Mai - but not so long ago people were not really doing it."
Moving to Longtown, Amber inherited a giant vegetable garden with soil as dead as a desert. Twelve tonnes of compost later, the garden was blooming with annuals and perennials, and a slow growing collection of shrubs and roses.
