Flowers From the Farm co-chair Meg Edmonds has run the Roots Family Farm Shop with her husband Will, as an extension of their Worcesterhsir-based diversified organic farm business.
The business features Flowers by Meg and with the Flower Farmers’ Big Weekend festival on 5-7 August due to showcase the best of flower farming, she gives valuable advice to others who would like to start up and make a living out of a cut flowers business.
She says: "I think there is a business there particularly if you're keen to make relationships within your local business community."
FFTF estimates that 85% of the UK population are now within 30 miles of a flower farmer and Meg says there's plenty of scope to increase the 1,000-strong membership.
