The Business of Growing Flowers

Low Cost No Cost Marketing Masterclass

You’ve grown flowers for at least a season, you’ve even sold some and have some customers. It’s the end of the season, and you know there’s more potential, but there’s never enough hours in the day or energy left to get it all done….. Can flower farming be anything but a hard slog?

We’ve been there, and done that, and the answer is that there is another way…. With thought, planning and lots of exercises in productivity, you can advance your flower farming, make your plot more productive, grow more flowers, advance your business AND feel like you are in control.

This course has been developed with Paula Baxter, and Carol Siddorn, and will run over 10 weeks during the Autumn, Winter and Early Spring of 2018/2019. It is an in depth workshop developed from our 5 Successful on-farm Advanced Flower farming workshops of 2016-2018 in the Scottish Borders, Cheshire and Surrey

We’ll be covering subjects like Getting ahead for next year, Market planning, Increasing the productivity of your field, and your own productivity. We’ll also cover record keeping, planning for the future, growing more flowers for less work and Making the most of what you’ve got.

Prices, costing and how to make a profit from your flowers

This 5 day course is for all those who grow cut flowers to sell, but who don't have absolute confidence in the price that they are selling them at. If you've asked yourself, "What should I sell this Bouquet/ Bucket of flowers/ Flower stem or Table arrangement for?" and not known where to start to figure it out, aside from a vague recollection that you've a) sold it at that before or b) seen that someone else had sold it at that, then you NEED this course. By the end, you'll be confident that you know the value of the flowers you are selling, you know who you should be aiming them at, so you can get that price, and you'll know what you are able to spend this year, to achieve that all important profit figure.
