The Flower Farm – a wedding florist & flower grower, in the heart of picturesque West Lancashire.

About The Flower Farm

We established The Flower Farm in 2007, not as a flower shop, but from a chilly brick building on my parents farm, from there we have moved meters down the farm track to a purpose built log cabin workshop based at my cottage, its a place full of scented flowers, chatter, cups of tea, creativity, cake, and a lot of leaves on the floor!Alison and Clare outside the shedquarters

During the summer months we go out early each morning to pick only the best of what is blooming that day. Our flowers are quite unique, beautiful, romantic, heirloom flowers which we use to give each bouquet it’s own character. We use seasonal flowers whenever we can, only importing over the winter months or when we are specifically asked for something we dont grow.

Picking British flowers at the Flower farm

Based in Burscough, near Ormskirk in West Lancashire, we concentrate on designing and creating wedding flowers throughout most of Lancashire, Merseyside, Cheshire & Cumbria.

I first fell in love with flowers when as  a child I used to spend my summer afternoons helping my Grandad pick his Sweet Peas.  Whilst still at school I began a work placement working in a local florist and I loved every moment of it, I couldn’t wait to begin my floristry training at Myerscough College. In the years to come I gained the highest qualifications in floristry, and went on to teach the floristry degree programme at Myerscough College for almost 10 years. I resigned from teaching to spend time at home with my growing family, but my love for flowers never wavered and I began creating flowers for local weddings. Also at this time I saw there was a lack of British flowers available to buy in the area and started my first flower patch. I love being able to work with these beautiful, romantic, scented blooms and the opportunity it gives us to offer our customers something different to other florists in the area.

Floristry is a second career for me, and a dream come true! After giving up work to take care of my young family in 2005, I started working for Clare and training under her guidance in 2010, becoming a partner in the business in January 2015. I have always loved flowers, and had taken evening classes before having children, just for fun. Being able to work with flowers on a daily basis with my great friends Clare and Emma is just wonderful. Having the opportunity to provide people with their wedding flowers is always a delight, to work with brides and grooms making their big day even more magical.

Thank you to Jo Rutherford for her amazing photography skills, picturing us out in the flower field.
