Growing up as the daughter of an estate gardener, Morgan May has spent her life working in greenhouses, historic gardens, and with flowers. In 2005 May established M Wilder, LLC which later became known as Petals & Hedges in 2011. As the founder and lead designer of Petals and Hedges, Morgan’s dedication to beautiful botanicals and gardens becomes obvious from the minute you see her work. A well-recognized florist and designer in Loudoun County Virginia, Morgan’s work has become highly sought after by both brides and estate owners alike.
A strong advocate for the environment, Morgan places great value on educating children and adults on the importance of horticulture and botany. She has been regularly found volunteering for The Nature Generation as well as the local school district, providing plants for outdoor classrooms and working side-by-side with students on the fundamentals of gardening and plant techniques.
LOUDON COUNTY Greenhouses
Morgan grew up working in greenhouses and in many historic gardens throughout Loudoun County and believes it is necessary to pass on her knowledge to younger generations and adults, to educate them about the career opportunities in the industry. Morgan owned and operated a nursery in Paeonian Springs, VA for 12 years where she specialized in high-end gardening products and unusual plant material. She is currently designing wedding florals and gardening full time out of her residence in Loudoun county. She still sources quality plant material for her clients upon special request.
