Hi! I'm Lesley, founder of Blossom and Hops.
My aim with Blossom and Hops is to bring you a selection of eco friendly home, garden, wildlife, wellbeing and lifestyle products, alongside a unique range of sustainable gifts. Inspired by nature, slowing down and seasonal living. Helping you to live a more natural life, while being kind to wildlife and the planet.
I have always been an avid lover of wildlife, spending hours as a child catching minnows, watching birds and playing in the woods. Now I have my own children I want them to grow up in a world that is kinder to nature, sustainable and free from plastic waste.
My background is in customer service, and great service is very important to me. I aim to bring you lots of exciting new products and inspiration through the website and social channels in the coming weeks and months, so if there is anything that you would like to see or have any ideas, I would love to hear from you, just send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
I live in the heart of the Herefordshire countryside, surrounded by apple orchards and hop fields. In fact my maternal grandfather worked in cider production and my paternal grandfather, a farmer, worked in the hopfields!
I share our home by the old canal with my husband and three children, and a menagerie of animals including a black cat, some hens, a rabbit, a beehive, some fish and as much wildlife as we can encourage.
In my free time I like nothing better than exploring the countryside, whether that be walking, foraging, or taking my camera out to capture the flora and fauna of the season. When I'm not doing that I like rummaging around in secondhand and vintage shops, cooking for family and friends, or spending time lovingly tending to the flowers and vegetables in the garden.
I really hope you love the collections that I have put together, and that you can find something for yourself or a loved one that will bring a little joy and happiness!
