Georgie Newbery of Common Farm Flowers is based between Bruton and Wincanton in Somerset. She grows about two hundred and fifty different varieties of flowers and foliage for cutting on her smallholding throughout the year, more and more of which are used in her five star workshops and courses held both at the farm and as online sessions.

She discovered Dalefoot Compost about two years ago. Why doesn’t she make her own compost? Because her flower farm’s ethos, ‘Look after the invertebrates and the rest of the food chain will look after itself,’ renders her own heaps of horticultural debris which lurk in every corner, out of bounds for Georgie, as they are also the corners where the grass snakes, slow worms, toads, hedgehogs, and many other friends live.

And so she keeps dumpy bags of Dalefoot Lakeland Gold to hand, ordering four at a time so that she never runs out of stock. She uses it to mulch, to top dress, to feed, to grow in. Her dahlias, roses, sweet peas and all the other flowers she grows love it, and so does she.

See her website, and choose a workshop or online session to enjoy yourself: her mission in life is to save the world one flower at a time, and to inspire and enable her students to do the same.
