Truly seasonal flowers grown for weddings, funeral tributes, locally delivered bouquets.
I’m Frances, a flower grower florist based just outside Kirkby Stephen, Cumbria UK.
I use only British grown flowers seasonal flowers. The majority are grown by myself, in my Cumbrian cutting garden, the rest sourced from other British growers and are used in my own floral wedding designs, funerals, locally delivered bouquets and seasonal flower subscription services.
Sustainability and being kind to the Earth is the heart of my values.
How did I get into growing cut flowers?
Following an inspirational meeting with Gill Hodgson (Founder of Flowers From the Farm) back in 2010, I decided to grow my own wedding flowers, and that is really how I developed my love of gardening into an interest in growing cut flowers!
The flowers I grow are full of character, beauty & scent with an amazing variety of colours, textures & shapes. I aim to increase biodiversity in my garden by growing lots and lots of different varieties and species.
A bit about me
I grew up in Wensleydale before studying at The University of Newcastle Upon Tyne. I’ve worked on organic farms and gardens, worked for various archaeology companies, done all sorts of other jobs, the last one being in a bakery, before deciding to take the leap to be a full time flower grower florist.
With my floral training from the Tallulah Rose Flower School, a BA in Archaeology and Ancient History and a Diploma in Garden Design I’m well equipped to deal with your floral and garden needs!
I am proud to be a part of the most amazing, innovative and supportive British Flower movement, Flowers From The Farm. More about Flowers From The Farm here
