The Healing Power of Flowers by Claire Bowen

The Healing Power of Flowers is the name of Claire Bowen from Honeysuckle & Hilda’s first book. And earlier this month, I interviewed Claire on my new podcast, My Small Business & Me. Just in case you’ve not had chance to hear Claire’s wonderful floral journey, I thought that this Sunday I would feature a transcript of our conversation.


Could you share with the listeners your small business journey please?

My small business journey wasn’t at all conventional. It’s something that I’d always dreamt of, but I didn’t think it would ever happen. And it almost happened by accident. Originally I wanted to be a lawyer and I read Greek and Latin. Then decided, no, I wanted to be an art historian. I did a few more degrees and I used to lecture in art history a long time ago.
