“This is a movement that is gaining ground all over the world. Williee”
British flowers are back in bloom and a new generation of florists are championing varieties grown on home soil.
Clare Ashcroft established The Flower Farm in 2007, not as a flower shop, but from a chilly brick building on her parents’ arable farm in Burscough, West Lancashire.
From there she moved down the farm track to a purpose-built log cabin workshop based outside her cottage, alongside her friend, and now business partner, Alison Matthews.
A trained florist, Clare spent 10 years teaching the craft to budding students at Myerscough College before leaving to spend more time with her growing family.
