Flower Picking Club 2024
Join the club, to pick your own beautiful bouquet of flowers at Amelia’s glorious flower farm and enjoy a vintage tea with the most fabulous views over the Teign Valley and great company!
My favourite place to be this year has been at Amelia’s Flower Farm, picking my own beautiful bunch of flowers. For the Little Devon event in September 2023, I made it even more special with a delicious vintage tea where we could all chat and get to know each other.
New for 2024, I’m launching the Little Devon Flower Picking Club (and vintage tea, but it didn’t have the same ring to it!). As ever, your little one(s) are most welcome at the event. Joining the Club will give you 3 sessions picking flowers and enjoying a vintage tea for a reduced price than coming to single events. It also has the added bonus of meeting the same group of people each time and getting to know other parents through a gorgeous and ever changing activity. I love how the flower farm changes from month to month.
- Thursday 2nd May 2024

- Thursday 4th July 2024
- (Thursday 5th September 2024)*
*There’s no meet up in August. And you will also have the option to join the Thursday 5th September meet for the same price per event £20 (I didn’t want to make it part of the club as it’s such a long time since July and I know maternity leave is only so long)
I will also be opening each of these dates up to book individually, but at the price of £25 per event. Joining the club effectively gives you 1 event free!
What to expect
- Enjoy a relaxing experience meandering through Amelia’s field of beautiful flowers picking your very own blooms to take home and enjoy. (The flowers are glorious and all grown lovingly without chemicals and pesticides).
- A vintage tea party together – delicious cupcakes and tea/ coffee / sparkling elderflower and a chance to get to know other local families.
- 3 (potentially 4) events – which means 3 (or 4) bunches of flowers and 3 (or 4) fabulous vintage teas together.
- A small play area set up for the children suitable for their age.
- Super-friendly fun atmosphere!
What do I need to bring?
Remember to bring your camera and wear sensible footwear, nettles and grass etc! It is a working flower farm – you are obviously responsible for your child. Babies in slings or prams – whatever works well for you (I’ll also be hoping for lots of baby cuddles too!) Cutting bucket and snips are supplied but best to bring something to take flowers home in that won’t fall over in the car, or Amelia sells buckets for £1.
The event will be going ahead come rain or shine (this is the UK after all) so please dress according to the weather.

I’m afraid there can be no refunds for a session that you’re not able to make. You can, however, head to Amelia’s flower farm and pick your bunch of flowers during her opening times (please let me know before hand to check that the time is ok)
We are a small scale cut flower farm and floristry business nestling in the beautiful valley of Combeinteignhead only a stone’s throw from the River Teign in South Devon. Every year we grow thousands of heirloom, scented and unusual varieties of flowers for our customers. I began my journey into the world of flowers as a keen gardener, as I began to share my flowers with my friends, this led to my first bouquet sales and I realized the power flowers can have – especially locally grown, scented ones!
Going into business with my husband Giles made sense to us, we have a shared love of the outdoors – curating our land for our sons to inherit and working alongside each other allows us to share the workload. We have three free-range sons who constantly inspire and amaze us every day – we truly believe that we are building something for the future…. a sustainable farm – growing alongside nature.
