    Description

    Hello would you like to come and help on a flower patch and small family run nursery in North Worcestershire?
    Focused on floral design and growing unusual flowers, herbs and cottage garden plants.
    We have polytunnels, outside beds, glasshouses and a main garden where we grow and propagate our plants.
    Set within our arable farm, with a small woodland and lots of footpaths to explore the local landscape.
    Owned and run by my parents, with the occasional assistance of myself and my partner. Along with two cheeky Jack Russell's.
