At the beginning of February is the annual Flowers From The Farm conference and its AGM. This fabulous organisation to which I belong, promotes the use of British grown flowers, that are grown locally and hence have not travelled thousands of air miles and have a very low carbon footprint. #grownnotflown.
Local British flowers are seasonal and carry fragrances that is not always possible in their long travelled counterparts.
This year is my first as a member of Flowers From The Farm and I am delighted to have been nominated as Best New Regional Member in recognition for my time and effort that I have put into helping this organisation and promoting British grown flowers.
I was involved in helping out at the first RHS Chatsworth Flower Show, BBC Gardeners World Live and The Lincolnshire Show, all working on Flowers From Stand and helping to promote British Flowers and growers.
The overall winner will be announced at the Birmingham meeting in February and I'll be sharing the news over on my instagram account so if you fancy finding out more do follow me there - you'll find me as country_cut_flowers
