Caroline & Roisin are a mother-and-daughter team of flower farmers growing thousands of flowers from seed and cuttings for weddings and special events all over the UK. Come and visit the Walled Garden, spend a few hours sharing their knowledge and approach to wildlife friendly growing, then pick a big bucket of your own choice of fresh flowers. They’ll show you how to prepare and condition the flowers, before transforming them into a luxurious bouquet to take home.

About Verde Flowers
Roisin Taylor, Caroline’s daughter, divides her time between growing flowers in the walled garden and working as a Climate Change policy officer for the wildlife charity, the RSPB. She grew up working alongside Caroline on their allotment, and has been involved in the business since she left university, and recently has been exploring ways of incorporating her other passion, textiles, which has seen her experimenting with natural dyeing from flowers and foliage. The flowers they grow together have less than 5% of the carbon footprint of imported flowers, have zero waste as any left over go into compost for next year’s blooms, and are grown without chemicals, with wildlife firmly at their heart.
