Flowers From The Farm – In The Media!

After many years of hard work, the wonderful group ‘Flowers From The Farm’ have been spoken about quite a lot this week in the media.

We were a ‘seedling’ on Flowers From The Farm when they first began their quest to bring fresh, seasonal flowers to more people. They have since grown and adapted and, importantly, supported so many people who want to grow flowers.

We think they do a marvellous job and are so pleased to have seen them in the Financial Times, then the Guardian.

Great reads so do go and check them out, then visit the FFTF website to see which grower is local to you.

Or, if you fancy producing your own blooms at home (and there really is nothing lovelier!) check out our ideas, based on first hand experience of growing flowers for the vase.

So apologies again if you are missing out, but everything should be back in stock by next week. Many thanks for all your support here at Modern Mint! Darren

So far I have written 6 different talks in the 4 years I have been running Modern Mint, 4 of which are still available for you to book. They are: What Do I Do With This Space? A garden talk that looks at how other cultures treat their outdoor spaces. A mixture of funny stories and practical advice, it shares techniques people from …
