Hello, I'm Carolyn White

I specialise in seasonal British cut flowers grown in the kitchen garden of my Arts & Crafts home in the tiny rural village of

Sibford Ferris, Oxfordshire.

Country House Style

I have a free flowing country house style which shows in the bunches and bouquets I supply for local customers; buckets of flowers for specialist florist clientele and DIY buckets of blooms for Brides wishing to create their own floral decorations.


I love to share my knowledge and hold workshops working with seasonal flowers from spring arrangements; through to hand tied summer blooms and dried flower wreaths; through to winter Christmas table and wreath arrangements.

Plants, Compost & Kit

I grew up on a farm in Kent (5th generation farming stock!) and from a young age had my own patch of garden inspired from the work I did for my Brownies gardening badge - my birthday present wish list today is pretty much the same as it was in the 70's - plants, compost and kit!!!


"A little bit about why I'm a member of Flowers From the Farm".

On the 15th of December 2023 BBC Gardeners World stated “only around 14% of cut flowers sold in the UK are actually grown here”. 

Plastic wrapped, air freighted flowers, protected for the journey with pesticides and preserving chemicals can take a heavy toll on the planet. 


Together with all the other British cut flower growers who are members of FFTF, we are trying to do our little bit to turn the tide of imported flowers being brought in from countries such as Colombia, Ecuador and Kenya via the European hub in The Netherlands and make life a little more seasonal and sustainable.  A bit like it used to be in the 1950’s when we had a thriving UK local flower market.


‘Flowers from the Farm is the award-winning membership association championing artisan growers of seasonal, scented, locally grown cut flowers. Our network stretches across the whole of the UK and puts you in touch with flowers on your doorstep.’  If you are not local to Home Close Flowers – check the Flowers from the Farm website for a grower near to you. 

Every bunch makes a difference. 
Choose grown, not flown!
