The price includes:

  • Hot and cold refreshments on arrival and afternoon cake
  • A mini tour of my second plot and guided pick of spring blooms
  • An apron to wear to protect your clothes, gloves to wear if you need them
  • Garden snips for flower cutting and a bucket (you’ll use this bucket to take your bouquet home in)

Equipment Needed

To keep this date in your diary!

Wear comfortable shoes and bring boot/wellies as the flower farm is a working area and can be muddy/clarty and uneven surfaces

Wear layers and bring waterproofs!


I will take you on a guided tour from my plot at the rear of the Battlesteads hotel where we’ll select and pick the best spring blooms with tulips in abundance and head down to the front lounge in the Battlesteads where I will demonstrate how I put together a garden-esque bouquet using the best blooms and foliage, I will then show you how I dress my bouquets using ocean friendly wrapping

After my demonstration you will then make your own with my guidance, finishing off with dressing your bouquet too.

You will leave inspired with newly found confidence to create your own garden bouquet with your own grown flowers in the future and a beautiful bouquet to enjoy too.

This is a series of 4 seasonal sessions, if you wish to book onto more than 1 please let me know and I will issue you a discount code.

This is an experience workshop and not a vocational training workshop for budding florists, if you wish to have vocational training please let me know and a professional training workshop can be arranged.
