Description

Grow your own Cut Flower Business – 9th to 11th June 2020

Our 3-day course is unique in it’s content and level of detail.  Once participants are comfortable with producing the flower crops, we will move on to how we prepare them for market – harvesting, conditioning, making a hand tied bouquet, packaging etc.  There will be lots of opportunity for hands-on experience with our flowers so that you can build confidence and get a real feel for the techniques required.

We round the course off with information about the business side of Flower Farming – marketing, pricing, suppliers, costings etc. so that you go away with really useful information and contacts to get started.

We keep our group sizes small so that you will get all your questions answered and good levels of guidance during the practical tasks. If it’s time for you to make that career move and grow your own cut flower business, we look forward to meeting you!

If you are more interested in running your Flower Farm as a Social Enterprise, this is covered in a separate course
