Emma took over on January 1 this year (and has since turned 22), having started at the shop on work experience from Lutterworth College, when she was 15.

“I discovered I loved flowers, and I went on to get qualifications at Brooksby and Moulton Colleges” she said. “Now I’ve taken over here, with five staff, who are all very good. My aim is to grow the business while keeping our good customer service and quality products.”
