Consultations/ Resources for aspiring flower farmers…
We’re often asked by aspiring flower farmers for consultations/ information on flower farming. We’re currently unable to offer consultations sorry, but here is a list of resources that helped us immensely on our journey. We’ve also included a link to our own Flower Farming Tips article from back in 2018 when Will Work For Food visited us for an article.
