I grow flowers naturally, entirely chemical free in a walled garden hidden away in Audley End, Saffron Walden. These plots are called ‘Anna’s Flower Farm’ and are a magical secret space where the most beautiful stems can be found.
I want to inspire a great appreciation of growing flowers naturally and the resulting stems. I hope more people grow flowers for themselves, share and sell them. I would love to help you do that to.
I do this by -
My weekly ‘3 for the weekend’ email with top tips for growing in your garden that week
the grow your own cut flowers cours here on the plots with me
In the flowers cut and conditioned for sale, enjoyed at your event, celebration or in your home
In my consulting, coaching and mentoring - in your garden, for florists buying and selling naturally grown cut flowers and for farmers growing these flowers
The seasons, growing by the biodynamic calendar and the beauty of the everyday is central my thinking and work. How we choose to live, taking responsibility for our existence and contributions is my ‘why’; I live this consciously connected life every day and share this message through my work.
I love to work in collaboration and run workshops and flower events with Kettles Yard, Fitzwilliam Museum and the National Trust. And here on the plots with other floral artists, chefs, creatives for photo shoots and chefs.
I 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.
As a skilled consultant, I love creating clear solutions where problems are overcome with beautiful design around existing features, working with clients and farmers.
The best days are on the plots teaching in classes and groups visiting.
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. Book for 2023.
I 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.
