The Real Cut Flower Garden cut flowers are grown outdoors on the Herefordshire borders and sent out beautifully prepared and packaged within a day of being picked. We also offer a range of floral workshops to teach you creative with flowers.
Charlie Ryrie started the business because of her deep love of gardens and traditional flowers. She spent two decades as a journalist writing about gardens, the environment and ecological design, and has always had a passion for flowers. In 2002 she bought a field, and in 2004 started sending out flowers to customers nationwide, and making stunning arrangements for weddings and events.
She is now well known for her beautiful and unusual combinations, her unflappability, and genuine love for what she produces. In 2012 the gardens moved to Dorset where she continues to provide amazing flowers from her own gardens with a small team of helpers. She works with some of the country’s best known events companies as well as providing glorious wedding flowers.
We also hold courses at New House Farm next door, alongside other artisan studios. Courses last from 10-4 and include coffee and light lunch. One to Ones are also available, and wedding flower tuition.
Our flowers are home grown and hand picked to order. The varieties of blooms and foliage that we use depend on the time of year and the weather. Arrangements are natural, uncontrived and on the wild side. But elegant enough to grace a sophisticated event and unpretentious enough for a kitchen table. We use many flowers that conventional florists just can’t offer. And also grow hundreds of old fashioned scented roses.
We provide flowers for occasions ranging from intimate dinner parties to large events, from celebrations to memorials and also individual gift bouquets.
