Meet the team

Christine – Head of Floral Design

Christine is an artisan florist capturing the ‘just picked’ look so well. She has recently retired from teaching and when she is not looking after her beautiful grandchildren (she now has 5!) she can be found at the flower patch, in the greenhouse or arranging beautiful designs for our customers.

Claire – Grower, Owner & Artisan Florist

Claire has a love of all things outdoors, and since teaming up with Christine to do her own wedding flowers in 2011 she has dreamt of turning her passion into a business. Having given notice on her role as a regional manager in the charity sector after her daughter was born, Claire began the Loanda Flowers journey in early 2017. The hard work involved in growing the flowers, as well as arranging them, is perfect for Claire as a farmer’s daughter – there’s nothing wrong with a bit of dirt after all!

The Little Flower Farmer – Director of Irrigation

The Little Flower Farmer is Claire and John’s daughter and has been a wonderful little helper when it comes to watering! She was just 14 months old when Loanda Flowers was established and was one of the main reasons for the family to start the business.

Daisy – Chief Excavation Officer

Daisy is the gorgeous golden Labrador who loves nothing more than digging up beds when no-one is looking! Don’t let the angelic look fool you – the rabbit-proof fencing put up wasn’t just for the rabbits!

John – Executive Vice-President, Construction

John is in charge of making Claire’s ideas happen – he built the Polytunnel, compost bins and website to name but a few!
