If you were brave enough to venture on to Lewes High Street in storm Gareth last Friday you might have thought you had slipped back in time. The cast of the up coming LOS Musical Theatre production of My Fair Lady took to the streets in costume with baskets of fresh flowers and flyers to give away.
One of the best loved musicals of all time Lerner and Loewe’s witty script and familiar songs will delight audiences of all ages. go.botanica relishes the opportunity to support Eliza Doolittle , a humble flower seller in her rise to society Lady.
Along side our sponsorship we will be designing and arranging the flower arrangements for the stage set and dressing the foyer and bar of Lewes Town Hall with fresh flower arrangements for every performance. Lottie and Mathilda our wonderfully talented florists at Lewes have designed and installed a wild flower spring meadow for Lewes Tourist Information on the High Street who will be promoting the production ahead of the performances.
Whilst I have not quite climbed to society lady I feel a connection with Eliza, 16 years ago with a pasting table, 20 buckets, shaky legs and absolutely no idea I opened at Hove Station. Teaching myself to make a hand tie in front of a mirror it wasn’t until I employed my first right handed member of staff that it became apparent that in floristry I was cack handed!

Me & Mr Higgins
I am so proud of everything that we have achieved as a company, always mindful that each and every person who has walked the path with us no matter how short or long has left a legacy and helped go botanica to become the friendly, local community based face of flowers in four towns.
We are now seeing grown up children of our original customers using our stores, which , although makes me feel ancient as Eliza would say it warms the cockles of my heart . Mr go.botanica was / still is my Henry Higgins , he believed in me right from the get go and his gentle encouragement, love and support not to mention his ability to talk the hind legs off anyone passing has been integral to the brand.
And if ever I doubt myself or procrastinate I get a sharp ‘move yer blooming arse !’
