The Dorstone - Dried Flower Wreath
Please note: We despatch flowers Mon-Fri which means you can now choose which day your flowers arrive between Tues-Sat. Order early for next day as flowers and delivery slots are limited. Thank you. Team GBF
hand made here:
Packed with dried flowers and grasses this wreath makes a fabulous wall hanging or party decoration. We keep a wreath of some sort on our door most of the year-round and as long as it is sheltered it will last for several weeks outside and many months (and sometimes years) inside.
If you have a particular obsession with one type of flower our wreaths are not for you because we hand make each one. We work within the theme and colour palette and each one has a rustic feel and we promise it will be as colourful and as beautiful as any other. (Of course, if it isn’t to your taste you can return it – this rarely happens :) )
where to hang it:
Ideally, they are for interior hanging but many customers do hang them on their door where they have a porch to cover and protect from the elements.
If they are kept dry and away from direct sunlight they last many months and we have customers that said they have lasted at least a year.

We have named our dried flower arrangements after Herefordshire Villages which we hope you might enjoy visiting at some time soon. Dorstone is a favourite because just above the village is Arthur’s Stone. This is really special - it is an atmospheric Neolithic burial chamber made of great stone slabs, set in the hills above Herefordshire’s Golden Valley.
Like many prehistoric monuments in western England and Wales, this tomb has been linked to King Arthur since before the 13th century. According to legend, it was here that Arthur slew a giant who left the impression of his elbows on one of the stones as he fell. Good pub – good potato land, lovely scenery, and in the heart of the Golden Valley.
