100% British Blooms- Workshop

 

We will be running four workshops in May, allowing you to experience with us, the vast range of local flowers and foliage which we are lucky enough to source and use within our day to day work.

We enjoy the diversity and quality of our dutch blooms but nothing beats cutting buckets of lovingly cared-for delicate cut flowers, herbs and foliage from our gardens.

Workshops to take place in Angie's garden just outside of Ilminster with home made refreshments included!

Just bring along secateurs if you have them, a bucket to take your design home in and why not book in with some friends and make a morning of it :)

 

Look forward to hearing from you!
