Small Independent Business – The Potting Shed Alderley Edge Cheshire

The Potting shed has been situated in the lovely Cheshire town of Alderley Edge for almost 20 years and was one of the first destination shops I can remember frequently visiting when we bought our first home. The buckets of flowers, pots of plants and twisted willow basket ware spilling onto the pavement always made sure I stopped the car to get out and browse inside and the business has grown and evolved over the years to spawn The Little Potting Shed in near by Tarporley.

Fast forward 20 years and it’s still one of my favourite shops and definitely one of the loveliest florists I have ever visited. The wide range of flowers and plants are displayed against a dramatic backdrop of black painted wooden tongue and groove and flowers and foliage spill out from beautiful containers old and new.The shop changes seasonally and the window displays and objects on display are always stunning.

Along with a selection of homewares, candles and small gifts, this is a testament to how successful and enduring a small business can be when attention to detail and an unwavering eye for beautiful objects is at the core.
