The beautiful Flowers you see on display at many Florists up and down the country in the UK are imported, 90% of the flower’s we purchase on a daily basis are flown in from other Countries including Holland, Kenya, Ethiopia and Columbia. Although some 50 years ago, British home grown Flowers serviced the Countries demand, things have changed at least for the time being.
Any Flowers home grown within the UK are now considered exotic Flowers but Flower farms within the UK are increasing and there is estimated to be 600 home grown Flower farms within Britain. The buy local market for anything is generally increasing and for events such as Weddings, customers want to source home grown Flowers from local farms and have a choice on the Flowers they use.
Many of the Flower farms operate alongside existing business ideas such as rare breed farms, locally home grown vegetables and meat farms and many grow their Flowers on an acre of land to keep up with supply.
Many of the Flower farms don’t cater for big demand and instead are known locally within their area for providing customers with specific Flowers they many want for Wedding Bouquets or special occasion Flowers. There are many business ideas if you want to start a Flower farm and one of those would be to provide specific Flower breeds and becoming known locally for providing a few specific breeds that are popular and sought after in your area.
Having a niche business idea can really make you stand out from the crowd and starting a flower farm could be lucrative if you have the space and time to add to an existing farming business idea.
