Introducing Our Friends at Whichford Pottery

We are delighted to be offering a charming selection of handmade pots from our new friends at Whichford Pottery in England. During a visit to their pottery last year, we became enamored with the beauty and function displayed in their work. Scroll below to get a behind-the-scenes look at this iconic family-owned business and learn about their frost-proof guarantee.

Because of our partnership, White Flower Farm is the only national supplier of Whichford pots in the United States. You’ll find our full line of these hard-to-find pots here.

Jim and Dominique Keeling established Whichford Pottery in 1976 with two apprentices. Their first workshop was in a friend’s farmyard. They now oversee a team of 30 local people, who design and make a wide range of English flowerpots using traditional hand-thrown and hand-pressed methods.

 

Their workshop is tucked away in Warwickshire valley in the Cotswolds northwest of London.

 

Each week 6 tons of raw clay are turned into 600 handmade flowerpots by a specialist team of craftsmen and women.

 

All Whichford pots are signed by the potter with a maker’s mark.

 

Everything at Whichford is done in-house which means they have total control during the creation process.

 

Whichford pots come with a 10-year frost-proof guarantee, a must-have for our New England winters. They are able to offer this guarantee because they blend their own locally-sourced clay on site.
