On this episode of the garden podcast:
Rosebie Morton is a sustainable English flower farmer and founder of The Real Flower Company Rosebie Morton. On todays episode of The SodShow she speaks with Peter Donegan.
Rosebie started growing traditional cut roses in a corner of her mother-in-law’s walled garden out of frustration as she couldn’t understand why most of the flowers sold by florists didn’t have the scent she remembered so fondly from her childhood. She was told by industry experts that she’d fail but The Real Flower Company is now in its 20th year and celebrating with an exhibit showing the journey from our flowers from field to vase in the main hall at the Chelsea Flower Show.
The sustainable flower farm is based in the South Down’s national park in Hampshire.
“Allow us to restore your faith in the beauty of real flowers. The average shop-bought bouquet, scentless and bland, is a long way from what nature intended – the magical array of colours and fragrances you might remember from your grandmother’s garden. We want to enchant you with our flowers and give you an uplifting and memorable experience.” Rosebie Morton, flower farmer and company founder
Rosebie started growing scented roses in the walled garden of her family farm in the South Downs National Park, Hampshire, almost 25 years ago. Since then, The Real Flower Company has stayed true to her mission to make exquisitely scented garden roses and British seasonal flowers, herbs and foliage available to everyone.
