The Potting Shed Florist

The weather is definitely spring like this week and the flowers, such as crocus, daffodils and cherry blossom are blooming everywhere.

If all this makes you want to fill your house with spring flowers or you are planning to buy your mum some for mothers day, you would find no prettier florist, in Cheshire, than The Potting Shed in Alderley Edge.

I can remember this shop opening years ago (17 to be precise) and it really stood out from the crowd. It reminded me of the sort of florist you would only get then in London, such as the one outside The Conran shop, with it’s beautiful natural displays and meadow like flowers.

The shop has evolved to sell all kinds of gifts, garden accessories and vintage knick knacks that all sit together beautifully.

Everything in the shop is for sale, from the hand made cushions to the vintage trunk they sit in.

A lovely spring display.

    Hi Karen,

    I love glancing at this Florist as we drive through Alderley Edge on our way to Gawsworth each summer. I am so pleased that it is standing the test of time. It shows they have got things right.

    I love your article.

    It's definitely worth stopping next time you're driving past, there are so many lovely things to buy in the shop apart from the plants and flowers. Thanks for leaving your comments, they are really appreciated.
