Farm News + A Giveaway
DECK THE HALLS!
Christmas seems to have come early this year and our small team of fabulous florists here on the farm have been individually hand-crafting wreaths to order. There is still time to order yours here – or why not try your hand at making your own? We have created a wreath-making kit packed full of aromatic foliage and berries from our sustainable Hampshire farm ready for you to hand-make a luxuriously full wreath. You can find instructions and frequently asked questions on our blog here or you can watch a replay of our founder Rosebie’s wreath-making workshop as you make alongside her.

THINKING OF YOU
It’s going to be an unusual Christmas for so many of us but it has been heart-warming to see orders for hand-tied bouquets and Winter Stem Boxes coming in to spread cheer to those we cannot be with this year. As a small independent business, we also really appreciate your support during this time. Our Winter Florist’s Choice Bouquet makes the perfect feel-good gift to show someone that you care.
A ROSY NEW YEAR
“The sight of bare-root roses, which look very brown and show little promise, doesn’t excite everyone – but I love it!” says our founder Rosebie. Now is the perfect time to plant roses and over on our blog Rosebie shares her tips for how to get the best results. You can also order Rosebie’s favourite rose plants direct from our Hampshire farm here or if you are shopping for someone who loves to garden, take a look at our Gardeners Delight Gift Box.
If you want to buy beautiful flowers during the UK winter, we think the best option is our sustainable sister farm in Kenya. Their location on the Equator means they can grow all year round without greenhouse heating or lighting. They have recently been certified as Gold Standard Carbon Neutral and they employ more than 600 people who would otherwise struggle to find jobs in a rural area.
