About us

Fork & Flowers is more than just a florist, set over two floors the shop provides a large range of beautiful fresh cut flowers for bouquets, weddings and funeral tributes; in fact, all of life’s events. Alongside the fresh flowers, numerous pretty old containers planted up with seasonal bulbs and flowers add a quirky charm.

During the summer months the shop expands to include a pretty walled garden where customers can pick their own flowers whilst taking in the stunning views and enjoying the sunshine. The garden can also be used by students on workshops in the Flower School where a full range of classes run all year round for small groups.


The Team

Fork & Flowers is owned by Cassandra Thompson Jones who originally trained as a landscape gardener and worked at Kew Gardens in London before deciding to also train as a florist. Growing up on a family farm she had already developed a passion for locally grown and homemade goodness but it was two children and two dogs later when she opened the doors of Fork & Flowers, a green oasis in the heart of Shaftesbury.

Genna Copeland manages the shop day to day having joined Fork and Flowers six months after Cassie started. With a background in fashion and food Genna had always been a keen gardener making bouquets for friends from her own garden so no one was surprised when she retrained as a florist and immediately felt right at home working at Fork and Flowers. Her wild romantic style complements Cassie’s country chic style making them the perfect team able to please a wide range of customers with their bespoke arrangements and beautiful bouquets.

Thank you so much for your generous gift of the extra flowers for the bouquet we collected on Saturday. It was a great evening and a successful fund raiser.

Thank you so much for our absolutely beautiful wedding flowers. The attention to detail, creativity and beautiful colours were beyond my expectations. The venue looked stunning and the bouquets were gorgeous and smelt wonderful!
