Unique garden and hedgerow flowers for a wild and natural look.
Based near Bridport in rural West Dorset, we grow cut flowers and foliage to sell wholesale as well as doing floristry for weddings and other events, using the sculptural shapes, scents and subtlety of our own flora which are either native, or suited to growing outdoors in our cool and rainy climate. We do not grow in heated greenhouses. Sustainability is key, so is being local, and working collaboratively with other flower producers from the brilliant Flowers from the Farm.

“I had heard great things about Champernhayes. As an event organiser, I have a particular passion for flowers and having used many of London’s finest florists including Scarlet and Violet, Rob Van Helden and Wild at Heart I can honestly say that Champernhayes is up there with the best of them.” D.Shilling
THE POP-UP FLORAL STORE

It’s at 42 East Street, Bridport (opposite the newly opened Literary and Scientific Institute). Sharon from Old Albion, and Kate from Rambling Rose and I are doing a collaboration of gorgeous seasonal flowers and foliage and salvage-style interiors and furniture, and it’s going to be groovy!! Please do come along and see.
We’ll also be running courses:
