Grow Your Own Cut Flowers

Flower Farming for Beginners

A full day learning how to grow cut flowers for business.  We look at the basics of growing but this course assumes a good level of knowledge is already held and what is needed now is business advice.  Covering your look, style, type of selling, how to sell and who to sell to.  We cover social media, advertising, pricing and marketing.  A tour of our flower farm and lots of opportunities for questions.  Tea/coffee and cake and lunch with wine is included in the price.  £160 per person

 

Sustainable flower arranging workshop

A lovely day spent learning how to cut and condition flowers for arranging, selecting the right ingredients to produce a wonderful display of flowers.  We look at containers, how to secure the flowers with no floral foam or single use plastics.  Which flowers and foliage to use and at which time of year to use them.  We cover different styles and size of arrangements and practice with different flowers.  We look at how you can get wonderful displays which are totally sustainable, seasonal and biodegradable.  You get to take home a gorgeous arrangement and learn very useful tips if you are planning to arrange flowers for a wedding or event or just to have lovely flowers in your home.  Tea/coffee and cake is included.  Bring your own packed lunch.  £185 per person.

 

Open Day

We throw our gates open for visitors to come and see a working flower farm.  Wander around our paths and beds, lawns and bowers and soak in the sights and smells of our array of flowers.  Tea/coffee and cake for sale.  Justine will be on hand to answer questions and a guided tour will take place twice during the day at 11am and 2pm.  £7 per person (children free)  Contact Justine at the email below to book a place.

 

Christmas Wreath Workshop

Start the Christmas season off with a wonderful morning spent creating a Christmas Wreath from all our own grown materials.  Enjoy festive snacks, mulled wine and tea and coffee whilst you whittle away with lots of foliage and decorations to produce your own unique display for your door.  This workshop is frequently booked by families and friends who see it as a lovely opportunity to get together and do something creative before the Christmas maddess gets too much.  'Theraputic' was a word used again and again this year by those attending as they relaxed into the task at hand.  Food, drink and all materials included.  £70 per person.

 

Feedback from this year's workshop:  

'Just wanted to say a BIG thank you for such an enjoyable morning making up our Christmas wreaths.  Your barn was the perfect venue for it, and the gluhwein, tea, mince pies and cake were a lovely touch.  You provided loads of interesting and varied foliages for us to work with - a real abundance - it was a treat to have so much choice and someone else to gather it!!'  - Clare
