Grow Your Own Cut Flowers

Georgie Newbery, Owner Common Farm Flowers

Georgie Newbery started Common Farm Flowers near Wincanton in 2010 – a business that grew from selling sweet peas from her gate. Then the fashion for home-grown bouquets took off, and Georgie saw an opportunity to increase her market. From those early gate sales her home-grown bouquets are now sent next-day delivery to the whole of the UK.
