Ever fancied gathering your own flowers? The Cotswold Posy Patch is joining in with The Flower Farmer’s Big Weekend to host an open morning this summer where you’ll get the chance to see our working flower patch and wander amongst the gorgeous blooms, choosing your favourites to pick and make a jam jar posy. There will also be a jam jar decorating station where you can decorate the jar with a selection of raffia, lace, and other pretty things.
On the day we’ll tell you a bit about our work, how we prepare the ground, plant, care for and harvest our flowers. We’ll guide you around the patch, helping you select and cut your flowers, and answering any questions you might have along the way. You’ll get to decorate your jar and then take your posy of flowers home with you. Each session lasts 45 minutes.
This event would be great for anyone wanting an insight into how we grow our flowers, or the opportunity to pick their own posy.
Children are welcome but must be closely supervised by a responsible adult at all times. No dogs please.

Flowers From The Farm is a cooperative of British cut flower growers. The Big Weekend runs from 16th – 19th August to celebrate and showcase British cut flower growing.
