The Team

So Flower farming is hard work. 

As i'm a small business i do every job role myself, But I couldn't get everything done without the support of my Team.

My Family are amazing. That's Hubby Ashley, Son William and Mum and Dad (Sue and Mike) - I also rope in Ashley's parents and my Sister and nephews and niece when they're anywhere near Surrey!

Jennifer is my Right Hand Woman. She's there every week to join me in planting, weeding, shifting manure or wood chip, picking flowers and she's a dab hand at splitting and potting up Dahlias. 

Emma is Photographer Extraordinaire. I've got to thank Karen for introducing us. I grow great flowers, but unless they've been photographed, i can't show them off to my customers. 

My work experience team of Amy and Carol. They sort out the barn and help me clean and condition. I hate the thought that at the end of this year Amy will be well able to be an asset in any large florist shop and will want to leave my barn and my constant questioning to check she's learnt even more flower names.

Seana found me half way through last year, and i found someone who could pick flowers, and help me with floristry. She promises she's coming back this season.

Plus all the volunteers that have helped out, - i'm sure to miss someone, but thanks to Shelley, Penny, Heidi, Dave, Julia, and Jenny.
