Floral Design Studio &Cutting Garden

Welcome to Tales From Apple Tree House

An East Sussex based floral design studio & cutting garden taking inspiration from the seasons and the surrounding countryside. Working from the beautiful Apple Tree House garden studio over looking raised cutting beds which supply much of the business during the British flowering season. Conscious of the impact the floristry industry makes on our planet we strive to create beautiful wild and natural floral designs. Always making the most of what's in season, working with local flower farmers and carefully foraging in the local countryside to add textures and interest to every design. No floral foam is used in any of our work and we try to source products from sustainable suppliers, always mindful of our footprint and being as eco friendly as we can be. We offer floral design for weddings, events, photo shoots, private functions across the South East and beyond & seasonal workshops. In the flowering season we sell bouquets picked fresh and direct from the cutting beds, specialising in tulips and dahlias as well as many other seasonal blooms. If you have an event you would like to discuss, near or far, big or small then please get in touch.

The Gift of Flowers


These beautiful flower gift bags are locally grown with zero pesticides or chemicals in peat free soil. No air miles, refrigeration or heated greenhouse during growing or plastics used in packaging. The flowers are picked the night before delivery so they couldn't be fresher. Beautiful unique blooms cut fresh just for you.

A few kind words from previous clients...

Anna was re-assuring, professional and kind. She made the whole process very stress-free. When we really needed fast (we got married during lockdown with 10 days to plan), Anna communicated wonderfully and completely assured me that it was all being managed. And the flowers: Anna understood my style and made the most beautiful wedding bouquet. It was exactly what I wanted, without having to ask for it. I went for a 'green bouquet' without focal flowers and everyone complimented how lovely they were. They really worked and now I'm drying them out so I can keep them on display forever!
