Working with the seasons to be as sustainable as possible. Fresh Blooms are available only during Our growing season, which Mother Nature decides.... providing dried flowers and cut flower seeds during Our colder months.
JoAnne Lewis- "I know stuff and I grow stuff"
My love for plants and flowers was cultivated at a young age. The fondest memories are of sipping sweet lilac nectar with my Grandma and planting yearly marigolds with my Mumma. As a child I loved being outdoors. You could always find me exploring in the wooded areas around my home, collecting wildflowers and lichen.
My love for floral design started in a high school horticulture class and quickly became a passion of mine. I immersed myself into the floral world by working at many flower shops, big and small. Working my way up from the bottom, I have held every position imaginable at a flower shop. Through many years of blood, sweat, and tears, I eagerly absorbed a plethora of valuable knowledge that has shaped the floral designer I am today.
However, the past couple of years I felt I needed a change. As much as I loved what I was doing, something was feeling stagnant. Now, through a blossoming new business idea, I can feel even more connected with flowers and customers by growing the flowers myself. So, after getting a Master Gardener certification through Michigan State University I am ready for the next stage; Petal & Twig is open for business!
I take pride in my vision for a natural and fiercely eclectic style of arrangements. I am constantly experimenting with new textures, balance, and hues. Each new season brings fresh adventures deeper into the world of floral artistry. Please join me on this artistic journey.
