The Worthing Journal - 02/05/23

ASHES to Blooms came about in early 2022 after the loss of my 12-year-old Netherland Dwarf rabbit, Lucy Rabbit. After losing her, I couldn't find anything that I felt would be an appropriate tribute to my beautiful pet, so I set up the following service. 

I now take the ashes of a loved one, whether a beloved relative or a special pet, and combine them with an unique combination of UK native wildflower seeds and other natural ingredients to create bespoke memorial seed balls.

After the unexpected loss of my brother last August, it was an honour to create seed balls, alongside my parents, using my brother's ashes. This summer we will all plant our seed balls in our gardens and on our balconies.

At the moment there is an incredible focus on the environment, and this is at the heart of everything I do. Clients can give these to friends and family to scatter in a special place, and they can then watch their wildflower memorial grow.

All ingredients in the seed balls are natural, and the wildflower seeds I use are all from varieties native to the UK. These flowers are ideal for attracting bees and butterflies to our gardens and helping to restore their habitat, much of which has been lost as a result of development and chemical use.

I use no artificial ingredients in my seed balls and I use recycled packaging and marketing materials, wherever possible. All products are made by hand, by my family business, in Worthing.

In 2022 I was shortlisted for the Adur and Worthing Business Awards' Sustainable Business of the Year Award. There is nothing similar in the world and I am delighted to be able to offer clients an ecological alternative for remembering their loved ones.
