Whichford Pottery is a family-run business in Warwickshire that makes and sells traditional flowerpots for both home and garden. My Mum has been a loyal customer for years - buying their products at a number of different gardening centres and stores - but had never actually visited their workshop, garden and cafe - which are all on site to explore at their company base in Whichford. When she mentioned to me that we should go and visit, I underestimated the scale of their site, which almost reminds me of walking onto the kind of family festival campsites that I used to go to as a child.
After we'd had lunch, we went into the gardens and pottery workshop to check out their designs. These consisted of an Alice in Wonderland range, a Shakespeare range and many more eccentric designs inspired by the potters and their experiences - one example being a 'Sicilian lemon' pot inspired by the designer's recent holiday in Italy. Some of favourites included the miniature bee planters and elephant pots, which fit beautifully with the aesthetic of their gardens.
