The Flower Boutique, Linton

Belgian owner Leen Van den Eede studied floral design in the Netherlands and at the New York Botanical Gardens, USA. She lived in New York from 2004-2007 and trained with top Manhattan florists Floralia Decorators at the legendary Waldorf Astoria Hotel, Japanese department store Takashimaya on 5th Avenue, Plaza Florist on Park Avenue and florist to the stars (think Beyoncé!) Vert-de-gris.

In March 2007, Leen opened the doors of The Flower Boutique in Linton. Within a year of opening, the shop was selected as one of just 12 English florists to feature in Sally Page’s beautiful book ‘Flower Shops & Friends’ – a year’s journey around English flower shops’ . Leen’s work has featured on wedding blogs like Boho Weddings and Love My Dress and in several wedding magazines such as Wedding Flowers & accessories.
