Featured Member: Featherstone Flowers

Jan 18, 2022

Nestled in the rolling Hampshire hills, Featherstone Flowers is a passion project of the owners, Jess and Katie who both believe strongly that British grown flowers, particularly those from the mixed flower farms, are by far and away the best flowers available. Jess and Katie came together to form the company, after Jess’s flower farm (Heathercroft Meadow) outgrew its space and Katie was desperate to grow flowers on a larger scale and expand her floristry business.

They grow flowers with the seasons in a sustainable, environmentally friendly way, using no pesticides, promoting and supporting biodiversity. They harvest their own flowers from March to November, giving them a wonderful range of unusual and stunning flowers and foliage varieties. Outside of their growing season they source flowers from other British growers.

When it comes to wedding flowers, they are passionate about putting British flowers on the map! By using carefully nurtured, seasonally grown flowers in the beautiful British countryside, they can make the most of the wonderful variety of blooms. Gorgeous textures, heavenly scents and a delicate nature reflects their own natural and free flowing style.

 

Sustainability is at the heart of what they do

They don’t use floral foam or single use plastics, and instead draw on sustainable floristry techniques.

As well as supplying wedding flowers, they also supply local shops and florists and run workshops throughout the year in their amazing fifteenth century barn. In the month of January, they are taking part in the @flowerfarmerama challenge so head over to their Instagram page where you can learn more about Jess and Katie and their business.
