Background: Born and bred in Harrogate, Abigail is a town mouse with a creative soul, her first job was with an exclusive perfumer’s gift wrapping Christmas gifts (she loves ribbons and tissue paper), a stint in a flower shop in her late teens gave her an intro into floristry but it wasn’t until 2 business ventures, 2 children, 3 countries later that she found floristry again. Having rebooted her initial formal floristry training with a career changing course at Jamie Aston in London she opened P&S in November 2014 as a Christmas pop up shop to ‘test the water’. March 2015 saw the launch of P&S in 29 High Street premises.
Why Floristry?: Its the happiest job I’ve had. Best thing about working at P&S: Every day is different, each customer has a different tale to tell and the friends I’ve made are very special. Oh and laughing. a lot.
Flowers: so difficult to choose, each season i change my mind but probably the Tulip.
Style: Detailed, varied – the more intricate the design the better.
Strength: ordering to perfection at all times (its an inside joke)
Season: Summer – its bright, you can get away with a lot more colour, you gain inspiration from the gardens, you don’t have to wear 30 layers in the shop to keep warm!!
