The Mindful Maker

Flowers, inspired by the seasons

Welcome to The Mindful Maker! I'm Michelle, and I'm fuelled by a deep passion for sharing the beauty of flowers with my local community here in New Plymouth, New Zealand.

During the lockdown, I embarked on a journey of exploration, and it led me to the world of flower cultivation. What began as a simple venture to grow some vegetables for convenient access to fresh produce quickly transformed into a blossoming love affair with cultivating flowers. Surprisingly, I discovered an inherent green thumb, a trait shared by many members of my family.

In the span of just a couple of years, my initial foray into growing flowers has evolved into a remarkable transformation of our backyard. I've dedicated substantial space to nurture a diverse array of flowers, creating a vibrant sanctuary that has taken on a life of its own.

Today, I take immense joy in supplying locally grown garden flowers to those who share a passion for supporting and celebrating our community. Join me in appreciating the beauty of nature, one bloom at a time.


The Garden

The cutting garden is located at the back of my home, I focus on perennials, bulbs and other treasured garden favourites that aren't always easily attainable from the flower market.  To respect my family's privacy, the garden is not open for visits.
