Hi I’m Lizzie!
I am the florist behind Lizzie’s Bundles. You may recognise me from the BBC Apprentice 2017 – I finished in 4th place. My full name is Elizabeth McKenna and yes I am the potty florist from Nottingham.
I have been working away in my flower stores in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire for several years, designing hand tiedflower bundles every day. I was born in Australia, I still have my Australian passport, and have lived in the UK since 1991.
My mum is from Leicestershire and she was a £10 Pom. I trained to become a florist at Brooksby College, Leicestershire, qualifying in 1997. My first business was called Busy Lizzies, which I set up at when I was 19 supported by the Princes Trust. Since then I have worked as a florist in all manner areas floral, trained and worked as a floristry lecturer and as an apprenticeship trainer.
Life in the flower shop can get a little potty, I am a bit bonkers, but that’s the fun of it. I never know what is gonna happen from day to day.
I love my working with flowers. They are delicate and fleeting and need a little bit of care, just like people. I want to make you something lovely. Because of this, you know that your bundle and the reason for it has had some love along the way.
