About Anna 

With over 20 years of garden, planting and design experience,

Anna will never be a hand model but knows good soil. 

Growing flowers since 2015 in a walled garden hidden away in Audley End, Saffron Walden, Anna’s Flower Farm is a magical secret plot where the most beautiful stems can be found.

The seasons, growing by the biodynamic calendar and the beauty of the everyday is central to growing flowers, celebrating our natural world and local environment here on the plots. 

 

The studio is host to classes and events where guests can experience a slice of the good life, be inspired and learn more about growing cut flowers.  Anna indulges her other great love, food and flavour in the outdoor kitchen where the day’s work pivots around a timetable of meals shared together.

Experience

Anna began growing flowers after a career in landscape and planting design; specialising in multi acre sites, renovating mature gardens, creating productive spaces and natural swimming pools.

A skilled consultant, creating clear solutions where problems are overcome with beautiful design around existing features, Anna still enjoys working with clients and farmers to flex this passion.

Teaching 

Anna loves to share her knowledge and inspire in classes and days on the plots. 

Leading sessions in planning, growing, cutting and everything in between.  The plots and space is very special.  Come and experience for yourself.

Mentoring & One to One

You can arrange a 'Flower Session' for one or two guests on the plots for Spring and Summer Evenings. 

Anna also runs masterclasses and mentoring for hobby flower growers, florists and flower farmers honing approach, skills and business focus all from a natural growing approach. This is always a bespoke service for the individual.
