Featherstone Flowers is a three acre flower farm located in the stunning rolling hills in The Wallops in Hampshire. It is a passion project of Jess and Katie. Both believing strongly that British grown flowers, particularly those from the mixed flower farms, are by far and away the best flowers available.
We came together to form the company, after Jess's flower farm (Heathercroft Meadow) outgrew it's space and Katie was desperate to grow flowers on a larger scale and expand her floristry business. Together we found the new site with fantastic potential to allow us to grow masses of wonderful flowers for you to bring into your lives.
Our flowers are for your home, your special events, to brighten someone's day or commemorate someone's life. Each of these are important and we are so honoured to be able to contribute our flowers, grown and arranged with love.
Our Farm: Growing for the Future
We believe that flowers should not cost the earth. Our flowers are grown in the most sustainable way possible. No pesticides are used as we believe that promoting biodiversity is the best way to manage those creatures we would rather not see too much of. We protect and promote the soil life and structure through no-dig methods of production, adding compost and mulches to the surface of the soil.
We are as zero waste as possible throughout all that we do and look to reduce, reuse and recycle in every aspect of the farm. Buying flowers grown by us means flowers which have travelled the least possible distance. We do not use heat or peat to grow. British flowers produce around 95% fewer greenhouse gases than those imported. You can also be sure that any flowers grown by us haven't been repeatedly sprayed with pesticides and herbicides (unlike those imports).
Our own flowers are produced from March - November which gives us a wonderful range of handpicked varieties giving unusual and stunning flowers and foliage. Outside of our cutting season we have dried flowers and use fresh winter foliage for all our festive decorations. We also source from other British growers and are committed to only ever using British flowers and foliage, and always as local as possible.
The Ethics of Our Floristry
Only modern, foam free floristry
You won't find any floral foam at Featherstone Flowers. We only use natural, compostable or reuseable methods. We find that these are more flexible as they can be truly bespoke and can actually make the flowers last longer than they would otherwise. We aren't shy about this and love to share and teach others how to do it too. Using methods from the past, with a modern twist, we are able to create imaginative and beautiful arrangements.
To learn more and try these techniques yourself why not join us on a workshop or we are available for talks and demonstrations to local clubs and societies.
