It is an exciting time in the world of British cut flowers, so many small growers are coming together to promote seasonal, English blooms and I am delighted to be doing my bit through promoting them for weddings.  If you haven’t considered sourcing British grown, in season flowers for your wedding, you must check out the Flowers section on the directory – I promise you won’t be disappointed.

One of our lovely recommended flower farmers – The Garden Gate Flower Company – are offering an exclusive 10% discount to TNWC readers on two of their upcoming floral courses. Having been on a couple of flower arranging courses, and those specifically offered by flower growers, I can highly recommend them as being a lot of fun and full of top tips.

The Garden Gate Flower Company are based in Cornwall on their family-run farm where they grow organically.  The 10% discount applies to the following two courses:

A Mother’s Day Workshop – Saturday 9th March 10am – 12.30pm

Inspired by Constance Spry, this workshop is aimed at all skill levels and includes demonstrations, hands on advice and plenty of top tips for you to make a large floral centre piece for your home.

What Becca and Maz say about the workshop: “We want people to take home beautifully arranged flowers and the skills to make their own at home from flowers they might find in their own gardens.”

The price of £120 for two people includes all flowers, vases and light homemade refreshments, and is a wonderful opportunity to spend some quality time with your mum. 

Spring Workshop – Wednesday 22nd May 10am – 12.30pm

Another ‘inspired by Constance Spry’ workshop, the Spring Workshop will involve demonstrations on how to pick, condition and arrange flowers for your home followed by a practical workshop. The price of £60 per person includes all flowers, vase and light homemade refreshments.

To book either workshop please email thegardengateflowercompany@gmail.com or phone 07427 686 558 – and remember to have your special TNWC discount to hand (full details below).

To claim your discount

Simply enter the offer code ‘Floral Fun’ when booking to claim your 10% discount on either the Mother’s Day or Spring Workshop.  All workshops have to be paid in full at the time of booking and are non-refundable.
