Product Details

Join Georgie Newbery for one, two or three days taking a thorough look at the practice of flower farming. 

These days can be booked individually, or book all three to make up our full Flower Farming Intensive Workshop for £900. You can book the full three day retreat here.

The focus of this day - Day One - is all about the flower farmer’s year.

We’ll be outside in the fields most of the day, looking at how we schedule our growing, looking at soil management, bed preparation, feeding, watering. We’ll consider budgets, suppliers, when to order, when to take delivery.

We’ll look at when it’s worth buying versus making.

We’ll consider managing your time, your physical strength, your energy.

Day one is all about growing.

This workshop is taught by Flower Farmer and Florist Georgie Newbery of Common Farm Flowers. Georgie has a very straightforward style, and after many years of growing, harvesting and selling flowers for her online flower delivery service, supplying flowers for up to sixty weddings and events a year, and growing more for the many talks, demos and workshops she delivers, her knowledge and know how are invaluable to people who want to earn their living growing flowers for sale. Since 2010 when Georgie started selling sweet peas in small bunches from a barrow at the front of the house, the British flowers movement has exploded onto the scene. Georgie believes strongly in sharing all she knows because then we’ll all be better flower farmers, and the British flowers movement will go from strength to strength.

If you are an experienced flower grower, perhaps already flower farming on a small scale, and want to take your flower growing and marketing to the next level then this is a workshop for you.

Limited spaces available - there will be a maximum of 10 people on the workshop.

The cost of the workshop includes all materials you will need to use on the day. All creations not made in vessels belonging to Common Farm can be taken home by the students at the end of each day. (You may wish to bring buckets or vases to transport your arrangements home in!) 

The workshop takes place between 10am-3pm at Common Farm, BA9 8HN.

The cost also includes lunch at a local farm shop, so please advise us of any food allergies / intolerances at the time of booking. Please bring any mid morning / afternoon snacks you might like. 

Please note that workshops at Common Farm Flowers take place in our studio barn, as well as out on the farm (where there is no cover!) Please wear clothes suitable for the weather (layers, waterproof clothes) and bring shoes / boots that are designed to walk on rough grassy paths. Even on a sunny day, flip flops and sandals aren't advised and we suggest long trousers where possible, due to the risk of ticks. A sun hat and sun protection are also advised, as we can't always stand in the shade. 

Nearby Bruton and Wincanton are full of lovely places to stay to suit every budget if you wanted to stay nearby – see our links page for good ideas

Please note: 

We will be in touch a few days before the workshop with your joining instructions. If you’ve not received this email 48 hours beforehand please email but do please first check your junk / spam items and make sure you are checking the inbox of the email address you used to book your place.
