After 8 happy years at Cobbs Farm Shop, I am hitching up my shepherds hut and moving on.

During my time here, the flower shop has “blossomed” from a borrowed Gipsy Caravan and modest display of flowers and plants to its current Shepherd’s Hut, 2 sheds, canopies and lots of display structures encroaching further and further into the Cobbs car park!!

The time is right for a change of direction and my new flower shop will open in The Barn at Garden Art on Friday May 6 as part of the initial stage of an exciting project to create a collective of artisan retailers and craftspeople at Barrs Yard.  My style of floristry and planting will sit very happily alongside the beautiful garden items that Travers stocks at his yard and we are all very excited by this new collaboration.

This move represents a big and challenging jump for me and I am particularly delighted by the prospect of no more winters out in the cold!

I hope you will visit me at Barrs Yard so I can show you around.
