The Garden Flowers Retreat

A day playing with all the bounty of Georgie’s amazing flower farm garden, turning her huge studio barn into a completely flowery bower.  The flowers for this day of floristry will be all freshly cut from the garden.

While taking you on a tour of her cut flower gardens, Georgie will explain how best to cut and condition garden-grown flowers for everything from creating a tiny posy to a hanging installation.  Then, with Georgie’s help and demonstration, you’ll turn the barn into a floral fantasia with hanging ladders of flowers, a wall of flowers, posies for the table, a large urn arrangement, and a fabulous arch for the entrance.  This will all be done with fresh garden flowers and vases.  

There will be no floral foam in the work you create, but there will be moss, wire, clever use of containers and branches, sand, newspaper… all sorts of clever tricks which will help you see that all kinds of stunning floral displays can be created without the use of floral foam.  

This is a day for the amateur as well as the pro florist, anyone who loves to play with flowers, see how they can work with garden flowers, anyone who just loves to bring the garden inside to create a breathtaking fantasia.

The cost is £195 per person including lunch, refreshments and all materials.  You will be able to take lots of flowers away with you at the end to play with at home.  The workshop will take place at the flower studio barn at Common Farm Flowers between Bruton and Wincanton in Somerset.

All our workshops include delicious refreshments so please advise us of any food allergies and intolerances at the time of booking.

We expect this to be a really popular day - limited to just 10 places so book quickly if you'd like to join us!

What can you expect when you order our flowers?
Most of our flowers and foliage are grown on our flower farm in Somerset. During some of the winter months we order flowers from our flower farming friends in other parts of the country. We only ever use British grown flowers. Our flowers are cut from the farm fresh each morning, before being arranged and sent for next day delivery.
Because our flowers are picked fresh each day, each of our bouquets is totally unique. Although we can't guarantee a particular flower or colour scheme in your bouquet please let us know if you have any particular requests and we will do our best to meet them. We promise that your bouquet will be fresh and beautiful.
