Dianne and Helen are the creative and dynamic team behind The Green House, they have been friends for over 20 years and have worked together on more than one occasion over this time. Between them they have nearly 60 years experience, both having started in the floristry industry straight from school.
Helen and Dianne both attended Houghall Agricultural college where they both achieved their levels 1, 2 and 3 in City and Guilds Floristry. This lead to Helen working in one of the most well known florists in Durham City and Dianne went on to work for the largest florists in Stanley, which is where they met when Helen moved back to the area.
Dianne then went on to run her own flower shop where after 10 years she decided to leave the floristry industry to concentrate on brining up her young family, but her love of flowers never went away and when the opportunity to go into business with Helen came along, she jumped at the chance. So in August 2016 The Green House was opened.
The girls are passionate about flowers and are really excited about starting a new venture in the town where they first met and grew up in and feel they have come full circle back to where it all began.
