You’ll need some land:
This isn’t gardening: it’s more like farming. It’s hard work and you’ll need a wide skill set covering horticulture and marketing – and that’s where Flowers from the Farm can help. We are a network of growers like you. Some are further along the way, and some perhaps haven’t yet got as far as you – but they’re all willing to share their experience and support each other.
Flower farming is a rewarding and satisfying career, you are growing a product that brings smiles to people’s faces. But it can also be solitary and frustrating; every year is different and it takes time to build up the necessary knowledge. The Flowers from the Farm community is here to support you as you build your business and to give you the confidence to grow.
£75 ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP
Anyone wanting to make a living from growing and using British flowers.
We have members of all ages. Some are new entrants into the world of work. Others are on their second or third career and have reached a stage where they want more independence and a different challenge; but it’s always exciting to watch people realise the potential and freedom that self- employment and growing or using cut flowers can bring.
What you get as a member:
What if I don't feel ready yet?
You have the option not to have a public profile straight away, but other members will be able to find you. You can also join in our private Facebook group where we are able to discuss pricing and other sensitive subjects. Not a Facebook fan? Don’t worry: you don’t need to open yourself up to the whole gossipy brouhaha to have a business page.
As well as helping your business, your membership means that we, as a group, can promote British Flowers, educate florists and the public, and have a foundation for campaigning to government about assistance for the British Flower industry.
