Growing flowers is non-negotiable for me. Part therapy, part obsession, part love for the outdoors - it makes me a better florist when I am growing the flowers too. After years of work experience on biodynamic and regenerative farms across the country, I began to grow flowers as part of my commitment to using British grown materials in my work without exception. Whilst I grow on a much smaller scale than your average market gardener or flower farmer, It gives me real insight and perspective into what is happening week by week and I’m able to plant varieties that I can’t source elsewhere.
Having spent three years growing in rural Essex, followed by a year on a humble urban plot in East London, I am re-locating to Devon in order to find a more permanent site.
