On a hectare of land in central Perthshire the business grows, cuts and dries flowers and foliage for florists and events, as well as bouquets and bunches for individuals. Deliveries are made across Perthshire and to florists in Edinburgh and Glasgow. Anne is an active part of the ‘Flowers from the Farm’ and ‘Scottish Grown Flowers’ enterprises which promote nearly 100 Scottish cut flower horticulture businesses.
