We are a sister-duo, Kathryn and Lorna, connecting with nature, wildlife, colour and beauty growing enchanting, vibrant, seasonal cut flowers in the ‘Valley of the Racehorse’, West Berkshire. All of our flowers are lovingly grown and nurtured in two small plots nestled in the rural villages of Eastbury and East Garston. We grow with the environment and wildlife in mind and take huge delight in watching the change in seasons and what each one brings.
If you love beautiful, high quality seasonal flowers with a whimsical, nostalgic English garden feel and share similar values to ourselves, then please do get in touch – we would love to help you.
Lorna is a professionally trained florist (Jane Packer Flower School of London) and we are able to create stunning arrangements for both large and small events. We specialise in growing our own flowers for weddings but would be delighted to meet your floral needs from bespoke wedding installations and bouquets to christenings, special occasions, natural burials and thoughtful floral gifts. Or, if you are feeling creative why not subscribe to our regular ‘best of garden’ DIY buckets throughout the growing season and indulge in making your own beautiful creations.
Likewise, if you are getting married and are keen to decorate your venue yourself using stunning locally grown flowers, or wish to create your own bouquets then do get in touch. There are several options we have to offer for weddings and we love to work with you to help make your day extra special.
We also host friendly, fun workshops and 1:1 classes sharing and teaching floristry techniques and flower arranging skills throughout the year – always with delicious home baked cakes and refreshments.
If we don’t have enough of our own flower crops at any one time we buy from other British flower farmers, supporting this important and growing flower movement in the UK.
We are perfectly situated less than 10 minutes drive off the M4, Junction 14 and are lucky to be located on the Berkshire, Wiltshire, Oxfordshire and Hampshire borders. Flowers can be collected from us by arrangement or we offer free delivery to our local villages.
We look forward to hearing from you!
