2017 News…

We’re delighted to let you know that we have recently joined the Flowers from the Farm network. 

Flowers from the Farm was founded in 2011 and now has over 300 members. It is not-for-profit network run and administered solely by volunteers.

Most members, including ourselves, 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, Dahlias, Gladioli, and Cornflowers, as well as trying out lots of new varieties.

Flowers from the Farm brings together all these growers and florists and provides local meetings and events: they encourage their members to come together to build displays at all the big flower shows: they hold workshops to improve members’ skills and – equally importantly – they are the place where you’ll make friends with like-minded people who will become your new work colleagues.

We’re excited to be part of this fantastic network and can’t wait to get involved with their meetings and workshops. Come say hello to Yorkshire Petals here!
