THE PEONY STORY
Peony flowers are no ordinary faux flowers. Each one is made by copying a real example in every detail, from the variation in petal shades to the individual stamens, leaves and stems. With their stunningly lifelike colours, textures and even scents, thanks to Peony’s exclusive range of Floral Fragrance Sprays, it is almost impossible to distinguish them from the real thing!
THE RUCKLEY ESTATE
The inspiration for all of Peony Faux Flowers comes from the Ruckley Estate. Hidden deep in the Shropshire countryside, looking out towards the hills of the Welsh Borders this delightful 1,500 acre country estate, with its lakes, waterfalls, forestry and farmland, is home to Peony founder Julie Bates and family, who live there alongside a host of peacocks, swans and guinea fowl.
Inspired by the botanical changes of the seasons and combining natural beauty with trends of the times, Julie and her team of designers lovingly prepare each of the unique Peony arrangements to ensure that the beauty of the Ruckley Estate can be shared by Peony customers worldwide.
Peony has gone from strength to strength since launching in 2005, proudly producing the fabulous faux, real touch arrangements, stems and bouquets from its dedicated warehouse in Shropshire located on the outskirts of the Ruckley estate.
Julie keeps a close eye on the quality of all products to ensure that they stay true to the inspiration of the botanical gardens at the Ruckley Estate and continues to travel the world in search of exciting new products to add to the Peony range. Many products have also featured on popular home shopping channels such as QVCUK, USA and TVSN.
