Hello! My name is Caroline and I run Countryside Flowers from my family smallholding in Lawford on the edge of the beautiful Dedham Vale in Essex. Having trained as a florist more than 25 years ago, I now grow beautiful seasonal flowers to sell : * From my honesty stall at the farm gate. * At local Farmers Markets including Colchester, Wivenhoe & Lavenham. * In Mixed buckets for you to arrange yourself. * To other local growers, florists and farm shops. * For Weddings, Funerals & Gifts ( delivery in the local area) * Pick your own bucket ( by arrangement only, booked in advance) * Courses throughout the year ( see our social media pages) I love nature and the beautiful countryside I'm lucky enough to live in and am inspired by the freshly picked from the garden look for my flowers. I use all of my own flowers in my arrangements but also source locally and from other British growers as and when I need to, it is important to me to try to create a better place for my children to grow up in and reduce the need for imported flowers from all over the world. Every year I add more perennials, annuals, bulbs and shrubs to my cutting garden to give me lots more variety in the flowers and foliage I have for cutting so please contact me for more information about what I'm growing and how I can help!
