About us

The Somerset Cut Flower Garden is tucked away on a south-facing hillside in the Quantock Hills between Taunton and Bridgwater.
Here we have created a garden for lovers of colour, texture, foliage and scent provided by the lovely flowers and shrubs that we grow.

Our Efforts to be "Green"

Being in Somerset means that our plants and flowers will have travelled just a few miles to reach you, keeping your flower miles down to a minimum. We are keen to keep our environmental footprint as small as we can so we don’t use chemicals and we harvest water as much as we can.

Testimonials

Jo: Your flowers were so beautiful and it was just the look I was hoping to achieve. There were so many beautiful comments about them, especially my bouquet. It was with a very heavy heart that I needed to dispose of them (although it was over ten days later). We gave some guests little bunches of flowers to take home with them from the tables and those that hung from the chairs.

Kathryn: It's hard to believe after all the planning and build up, how quickly the wedding day went by; it was a beautiful day filled with stunning flowers exactly as I'd dreamed it would be. The church was an absolute picture in shades of sunshine yellow and white, with plenty of lush foliage. The buttonholes and corsages were beautiful and the bouquets were everything I wanted and more. It was such a joy to carry such an array of locally grown flowers and to know the thought and time and effort that had gone into growing and arranging them. Thank you for making the flowers as I wanted them but for being so lovely thoughout the process.

Lucy: Many thanks again for our stunning flowers!

Victoria: My hydrangeas and mock orange were absolutely beautiful and I think my bouquet was stunning and smelt divine with the mock orange and the chocolate cosmos.
