I started my journey into flower farming four years ago after spending years feeling unhappy in my previous job.
After my second child was born I decided it was time to do something about my work life and through family members I found out that flower farming on a small scale existed in this country – it was not something I had ever previously heard of.
All my life I have loved gardening, being one of those people with lights in the greenhouse, enabling me to carry on working on my hobby during the night. Flower farming seemed like something I could do and would enjoy; with that in mind I booked myself onto a workshop for beginners and I haven’t looked back.
That workshop started the ball rolling for me and I now run a successful flower farm. I won’t lie this is hard work but I now love what I do and I feel proud to be showing my children that you can make a living out for doing something you love rather than just living for the weekends.
Pipley Flowers took off rather quickly; I run another business which I started in 2005, and have a strong sales background - these experiences have helped me in my current venture and enabled me to help others on my previous Flower Farming workshops.
On my past workshops I have had people come along to find out how to start a flower farm and others have already started but wanted to see other ways of doing things. I have also helped trading florists who would like to supplement their bought in flowers with some they have grown themselves.
My next Flower Farming for beginners workshop is coming up on the 10th of February. There is still one place available for someone who would like to make a change or add value to what they do now….could that be you?
