Flower Farmers Big Weekend 2020
The Flower Farmers Big Weekend is going online. As with so many events this year, the virtual weekend will showcase all those individual events that would have taken place in person had this been a 'normal' year.
The Flower Farmers Big Weekend is organised by the Flowers From the Farm community to showcase British grown flowers and the growers who work so hard to bring British blooms to you without air miles, without chemical, and plastic free. Flowers From The Farm is a multi award-winning, not-for-profit, co-operative of British cut flower growers. I am proud to be a member.
There will be insights into starting out, if you'd like to learn more about growing cut flowers, and there will be tips and techniques to help you from @blackshedflowers. There will also be tours around individual farms and flower fields, and watch out for a virtual trip to the magnificent walled garden of Gordon Castle in Scotland @gordoncastlewalledgarden It's one not to miss. We'll also go 'from plot to vase' with Hannah-Victoria of @ixiabotanicals based in Lancashire - and that's just on Friday!
You can check out our Facebook page to find out more https://www.facebook.com/flowersfromthefarmpublic/ and visit the website here https://www.flowerfarmersbigweekend.co.uk/whats-on-2/ to keep in touch with all that we have planned.
A Flower Farmers Question Time will also feature, and it promises to be full of insightful opinions from some fabulous flower farming folk.
There has never been a better time to buy British flowers. I hope you will feel able to see, and share, all that we have planned, and consider buying British flowers to support the endeavours of flower farmers in the UK.
Come and see what we have in store via the links, as above, and SAVE THE DATE!
