As well as buying in from other Flowers from the Farm growers and larger growers from other parts of the UK, we also grow our own flowers. More accurately, Mum grows them. Thanks Mum! I do dabble with a spot of gardening, but Mum's the one with reliably green fingers. She considered market gardening as a career but went for physio instead, deciding she could grow vegetables in her own time and therefore do both. She's always been self-sufficient in growing vegetables but over the years she's been making more room for the flowers. These days there's more flowers than veg, and we use both our gardens plus a small local off-site plot.
For me it's as much about the British foliage as the flowers. It's the variety of seasonal foliage, and the wide range of unusual blooms and foraged seasonal components that allow us to make a brand new composition every week and that makes our posies truly unique. If you'd like to celebrate the seasons with us, you can choose from weekly, fortnightly or monthly flowers delivered to your door in the Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch areas of Dorset.
