We are proud to be members of Flowers from the Farm.
Flowers from the Farm is a not-for-profit network run and administered solely by volunteers.
Most members are sole traders running small or micro businesses: farmers, smallholders and gardeners, who are using their knowledge of horticulture and floristry to grow and present a different range of flowers from those available in the supermarkets and the wholesale markets.
From Cornwall up to Scotland, and every region in between, these artisan flower farmers are growing old favourites: Sweet Peas, Bells of Ireland, Dahlias and Aquilegia, as well as trying out lots of new varieties.
Our members grow for wholesale, selling to retail and event florists: some sell at farmers’ markets and craft fairs: some have farm gate sales, or have teamed up with local shops to sell their bouquets. The blossoming market for bespoke funeral flowers has opened another opportunity with more people searching for an alternative to the ubiquitous, rigid displays usually on offer. We also have online retail florists, and some utterly brilliant wedding and event florists among our members.
Although the majority of British flowers are sold during the summer months: flowers can be grown in Britain all year round. Scented Narcissi start to come out of Cornwall and the Scillies in October: tulips from Lincolnshire are in the shops for Christmas. Many of our members are skilled at forming gorgeous winter foliage, scented shrubs and the winter flowers into amazing displays during the shortest days.
Flowers from the Farm brings together all these growers and florists.
