our story


The Nectary is an independent eco-friendly florist based in Mauchline and servicing most of mainland Ayrshire. 

Eco comes as standard with The Nectary and all of our luxury bouquets are wrapped using recycled, recyclable, reusable or compostable products (including our aqua packs).

The Nectary was founded by Dr. Jillian Mullen combining her two great passions: psychology and nature. The link between nature and well-being is undeniable, it can transform our moods, our environments and even our health! The Nectary aims to bring those benefits directly to people, in a stylish and sustainable way. 

Jillian has a PHD in Psychology and since re-imagining her career in the context of nature, she has trained with Dutch and French florists, worked in a high-end floral boutique in Switzerland, and earned her Diploma in Floristry and Styling at the prestigious Judith Blacklock Flower School in London.
