As a guide, one bucket containing 60 stems would provide enough to make any of those listed here:

How do I order and pay?
We have made ordering very easy, we take orders by email and telephone, please see our Contacts page. For weddings, we take a deposit of £60 by BACS when placing an order, and payment in full two weeks’ prior to your wedding date (please see Terms and Conditions).
Do you deliver?
DIY wedding buckets of flowers can be collected from the farm. Alternatively, we can deliver within a 12 mile radius for a small charge.
Do you have a minimum order?
No. We provide DIY buckets for weddings and events, but can accommodate smaller quantity orders for flower clubs, events coordinators and for anyone with an interest in floral home styling – we know that not everyone needs a full bucket. If you would just like to purchase and collect a bunch or two, that is fine. Please contact us for up to date prices.
Do I have to provide my own buckets?
No, the cost of your purchase includes your buckets, this way we can ensure that the flowers leaving our farm have been correctly stored, conditioned and suitably contained for transportation.
Can I return the unwanted buckets after my wedding or event?
Yes certainly! We will accept returns of empty, clean and undamaged buckets – as you cannot recycle them, we will re-utilise them.
Do you do wedding floristry?
At present we do not offer design or consulting with our DIY bucket service, as we concentrate our efforts on growing the very best quality flowers, but we can direct you to local florists whose ethos it is to work specifically with local, seasonal flowers. We plan to hold wedding floristry classes in the future to assist you in developing your style and confidence, please keep an eye on our social media for updates.
How many buckets will I need for my wedding?
Our buckets contain a mix of focal flowers, secondary flowers, fillers, scented herbs and foliage, in a suitable ratio for designing, consisting of approximately 60 stems. A well filled jam jar is likely to require ten to fifteen stems, on average. Please also see above.
What flowers can I expect in DIY buckets?
DIY buckets are growers’ choice of approximately 60 stems. These will be the very best of what is at its peak in the field that week. Some will be fully open, some still in bud to open on the day of the wedding. We cannot guarantee colours or type, but will try our best to accommodate your wedding colours. Please note that the buckets will not contain all ‘premium’ flowers such as roses or peonies, as what we supply is a balanced mix (as used by all floral designers) to create an overall design feel.
Can I send you images of my ideas?
Unfortunately no – as we are a flower farm, and we grow lots of varieties in small quantities, we are not like a high street florist who can be much more prescriptive. All our flowers are grown naturally, and as such, we are at the mercy of the Cornish weather, so what we offer is natural, unstructured, with arching stems, quirks and a rustic feel. We cannot fit a particular style, but can recommend local florists experienced in designing with locally grown, seasonal flowers, who will take your ideas, and use them with our flowers.
Can I come to the farm to look around?
We hold open days each year, which you are welcome to attend, and we can sometimes accommodate visits by prior appointment, but unfortunately we cannot have drop-in visitors to look around the fields and tunnels outside of this due to our farm insurance cover. Customers are of course able to collect orders as arranged at the time of ordering.
