Want to be a Flower Farmer?

     

    You’ll need some land:

    • a large garden, skilfully managed, will provide a succession of flowers for local sales
    • half an acre will allow you to spread your wings still further -  provide bunches for your local retailers or posies for café tables or enter the world of wedding flowers.
    • an acre or more will allow you to sell wholesale to local florists throughout the year.

    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.

    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.
