Our cutting garden is based in Compton Dundon, Somerset, providing seasonal flowers and foliage between March and October. Growing our own allows us to source from a more curated, delicate and scented crop featuring the organic shapes and variety of flowers that are the antithesis of the mass-produced, uniform products more widely available. We are chemical-free and pesticide-free.
Please get in touch if you’d like to order flowers directly from out cutting garden.
During his childhood, Oliver spent Saturdays climbing oaks and building treehouses in the grounds of his grandparents’ cottage. In particular, the summer was a time to treasure. Grandpa's carefully-prepared seedlings would burst into life as rows of manicured Marigolds, Sweet Peas and Dahlias would flourish and frame the garden paths. Flowers would flow from hanging baskets and the rose garden would burst into bloom. Memories of sitting together on their iron bench, drenched in the warm summer sun, amongst each year’s glorious blooms, remains redolent to this day.
A BIT ABOUT US
Founded by Sula and Oliver, Nice Bunch is an ethical floral design studio and cutting garden, set up to deliver luxury flower arrangements that are better for the Earth. Based in London and Somerset, we’re nature enthusiasts, collaborating to create bespoke compositions for installations, events, weddings and special bouquet orders.
We cherish the bounty of the British countryside, which means our work is naturally, seasonally-inspired. Our world of inspiration appreciates the fluttering wildflower meadows, plentiful country gardens, and the fun that comes with flower heads that bob and dance together in the breeze. So we bring together an abundance of colours and shapes from the natural world to create a textured, wild and playful aesthetic.
To truly enjoy the work we do, we endeavour to respect and preserve the natural habitat that surrounds us, which means we’re committed to being sustainable and having positive impact on the environment. To do this, we source our flowers and plants locally, from chemical-free and organic growers wherever possible. If we do require flowers from abroad, we buy Fairtrade and offset the carbon emissions associated with their travel. We reuse and recycle, compost our waste and avoid single-use items such as plastics.
Sula is an artist and a designer with a deep passion for the evocative beauty that flowers can bring.

As career horticulturalists, Sula’s parents, Harisudha and Durgadas, have been and continue to be a source of inspiration and knowledge. Sula collaborates with them to find and grow rare and delicate beauties.
