Wild Imagination is a small flower growing business run by Louise Warner. Louise has spent over 20 years working in horticulture as a landscape gardener and as a buyer for leading Toronto nurseries. She inherited her dear grandmother's green thumb (but sadly lacks her ability to pull off pearls and fur while in the greenhouse). Louise's multi-talented father, Don Warner, grew and sold buckets of flowers as a kid, and moonlit through law school doing wedding flowers for lucky Lindsay, Ontario brides in the late 1950s.
Fortunate to be the niece of a generous aunt and uncle with a farm, Louise is growing on borrowed land in Bethany and in her family's yard in Peterborough. Her arrangements use both heirloom favourites and cutting-edge varieties to evoke a romantic, garden style. In 2010, she travelled to New York to attend the Little Flower School, run by influential floral designers Sarah Ryhanen and Nicolette Camille. In 2016, Louise attended a workshops at Floret Flower Farm with Erin Benzakien, and with Jennie Love of Love 'n Fresh Flowers, two trailblazers in the budding movement back to local flowers.
Wild Imagination is all about bringing incredible local flowers to the Kawarthas. We also supply some of Toronto's top floral designers with specialty cut flowers and foliage, and are known for our unique offerings. We are obsessed with finding new varieties to grow, great vase life and fresh beauty! The best cut flowers are bred from the union of wild nature and human ingenuity. This idea, and Louise's two little wild things, Leo & Catherine, are the twin inspirations behind the name Wild Imagination.
