About

Rona-Wheeldon-FloweronaFlowerona is a floral-inspired blog written by flower writer Rona Wheeldon. Rona is passionate about flowers and her aim for Flowerona is for it to be a ‘feel good’ place for people to escape to and be inspired by…

Based near London in England, Rona writes about all things flower-related. Topics include flowers, florists, floristry courses, weddings, artists, designers, gardening, shows, books, photographers and fashion.

After fifteen years in the corporate world, her love of flowers was reawakened when she signed up for a floristry evening class in 2004. She enjoyed it so much that she went part-time at her job in London, in order to study for a formal floristry qualification. Having achieved a National Certificate in Floristry, she then left the corporate world entirely and worked initially for a florist in Surrey and then for one of the UK’s top florists, Paula Pryke.

Launched in 2010, Flowerona is regularly updated with special blog post series on Wednesdays (Wedding Wednesday) and Fridays (Florist Friday). In January 2014, Flowerona had over 25,000 unique visitors and received over 55,000 page views. In addition to direct traffic, Flowerona has over 580 daily subscribers. Flowerona was awarded Best Wedding Flowers Blog at the Wedding Blog Awards in October 2013.

Rona writes features for Wedding Flowers & Accessories magazine and Homemaker magazine.  Online, she writes for the New Covent Garden Flower Market blog and the Laura Ashley blog.
