Keep it local - Somerset Business

Wednesday, 7 November 2012

Here at Myakka and in Somerset we are a friendly bunch and we love talking to and working with other local businesses. Following on from a post about the architecture by Andrea form O2i Design Consultants we thought it would be great to start series blogs by guest writers from local businesses. So without further ado we would like to introduce to you another Georgie from Common Farm Flowers. Here is her first instalment of a guest blog she has written for us…

In this corner of Somerset businesses are really supportive of each other.  Whether that’s because lots of them are run by Mumpreneurs who understand the pressures of achieving the school run and the book keeping at the same time as marketing a business, I don’t know, but Myakka, run by Georgie and her husband Simon in Wincanton, are very enthusiastic about our local cut flower business and order from us often.  So it’s really nice to be invited to blog for their website about gardening through the winter now that the days are drawing in.

We first had dealings with Myakka when they ordered some of our British Flowers for a photo shoot they were doing in the summer for their lovely fair-trade furniture.  We were delighted to be able to give them lovely table centres and posies with which they could dress their sideboards and dining tables for the shoot.  We do flowers for all occasions, weddings, parties, birthdays, or just to say ‘I love you’, and most of the flowers we use are grown on our own smallholding here in Somerset.  If we do order in we order British Grown flowers: we are as eco and fair trade with our flowers as Myakka are with their furniture.  No wonder we feel as though we’ve things in common...

Make sure you look out for Georgie’s next blog on gardening through the winter months.  Please do have a look at the architecture of Myakka HQ blog (we live in an interesting old building) kindly researched and written by Andrea from O2i Design Consultants. Make sure you check out Georgie’s Common Farm Flower blog, it is full of stuff about gardening but also loads about life including keeping the kids entertained, bee keeping and marmalade making.
