Welcome to Black Shed Flowers!


Black Shed Flowers, a new way to buy cut flowers.
2017 saw the birth of Black Shed, growing fresh, local, seasonal cut flowers, grasses and foliage for everyone in our beautiful flower field in Sherborne, Dorset. From March to November, we produce the most beautiful fresh cut flowers and sell them from our gorgeous cut flower gardens just outside Sherborne at The Toy Barn on the A30. It’s a wonderful and unique day out for all members of the family and an entirely new way to buy cut flowers and fill your home with vases full of colour. 

What do we grow?  A huge range of fantastic flowers and foliage, old favourites and new.  Expect, an amazing range of Dahlias, sweet peas in all shades, foxgloves in all colours, delphiniums and larkspur, scabious, cornflowers and a rainbow of cosmos. Select and special foliage and our trademark grasses, guaranteed to bring life and vibrancy to all your arrangements. We’re constantly monitoring the new ranges of cut flowers that are being bred for small cut flower farmers, such as ourselves. Best place to get a glimpse of our flowers and the story behind Black Shed is to visit our availability page or visit our Instagram feed to see what we’re up to and what is growing right now!

So how does it work?

  Come and visit us! We’re really easy to find, right on the A30, just east of lovely Sherborne. You’ll see the signs for Black Shed and The Toy Barn, there’s plenty of room in the car park and easy access to the gardens and shop. The Toy Barn is a wonderful toy shop, with wonderful adventure toys, go karts and trampolines for any children to try out.  Spend a lovely day in our garden, have a great cup of coffee, whilst the children have fun. We are open 10:00 - 5:30 Tuesday to Sunday from March to November.

  Daily Specials Every day, throughout our long season, we pick fresh flowers from the gardens, to create new posies and bouquets for anyone to buy. Trying out new colours, compositions and combinations from our growing range, no bouquet is the same, you will take home something quite unique. 

  Custom Orders Ask us to create something special for you, pop in, choose your favourite flowers and foliage and we’ll create the bouquet, posy, garland or wreath especially for you. Lots of our customers phone us, either for a custom order, or ‘pot luck’, an arrangement using our freshest and best that day. 

  Pick Your Own Our Pick Your Own Sundays were incredibly popular in 2017, so for 2018 we’re really increasing the range of Pick Your Own cut flowers. It’s great fun! Bring a bucket and a pair of secateurs for a unique floral experience and a great day out! We are there to guide you and to help you select your favourites. If you’ve ever visited a beautiful garden and wanted to pick the flowers, now you can!
