Flower Farmers' Big Weekend launches at Garden Media Event, London

Article Published By Flowers From The Farm on Feb 28 2019

    Yesterday saw Flowers From the Farm launch its new promotional event, The Flower Farmers' Big Weekend, August 16-18th 2019, at the Garden Media Press Event in London. We were delighted to hit our target of 100 events before the launch, so are really excited to see how far we can exceed this by August!

    • For three special days this August, over 100 growers from the Flowers from the Farm cooperative will be opening their gates to visitors for the first ever Flower Farmers’ Big Weekend in events across the country.
    • See our cut flower farms at their blooming best, and peek behind the scenes of our award-winning artisan movement on farms, allotments and in cutting gardens of every shape and size.
    • The events diary for The Flower Farmers’ Big Weekend will be available at the end of April 2019 – so watch this space! Find talks, workshops, tours, Pick Your Own days, picnics, suppers and afternoon teas on plots all over the UK.

    Linda Clark (Spotted Dog Flower Company), Cobi Snelson (Batch Cottage Flowers) and Carole Patilla (Tuckshop Flowers) spread the word about our inaugural campaign to magazines, newspapers, freelance writers and bloggers. 

    The idea of the campaign and flower farmers' stories drew a great deal of interest from garden writers, as did the beautiful flowers for our stand provided by London-based Camilla and Marianne of Wolves Lane Flower Company so a big thank you to them.

    Thanks also to all our members who submitted images which we used for eye-catching posters of you all at work - these are proving an invaluable resource for FFTF - if you're a member and would like to add yours, please see how to submit them in the latest newsletter.
