Great Way of Making Some Money Out of this Hobby?
Not sure if this is the appropriate forum for this subject, but I joined this site / organisation a couple of days ago.
Flowers From the Farm
I am really hoping to make a few shekels flogging dahlia blooms to my local florist or even a farmer's market, but my main aspiration is to get my Mum out there. She grows a huge amount of flowers from seed every year and sells them with an honesty box in her front garden in Wimbledon. Quite successfully too.
I was surprised that 80% of flowers sold in the UK are trucked / flown in from abroad, especially when there's so much evidence of great plants being grown here at home. It also makes a bit of a mockery of this green revolution we are supposed to be going through to be burning fuel to get some cut flowers into a vase.
Has anybody else heard of Flowers From the Farm? I would be really interested in how you got on. If I could make enough to pay for my new dahlia tubers each year I would feel rather pleased with myself!
