Gabriel Reid fell in love with flowers as a child. Over the years she evolved that passion into a cut flower business, and Gabriel’s Garden was soon formed.
Michael and Ellen visit the stunning gardens to meet Gabriel and find out how she started selling salads and edibles at farmer’s markets, and how that grew into selling cut flowers. As an artisan florist and grower of fine flowers, Gabriel now sows, grows and delivers seasonal flowers fresh from her Norfolk gardens.
Gabriel discusses the emotional connection that people can have with a specific type of flower, and how this led her to the realisation that it was incredibly difficult to buy seasonal flowers you want at any time and how her business was then formed.
This episode of The Plant Based Podcast champions British flowers, and the Flowers From The Farm network of growers that supports British growers by delivering flowers with zero air miles, and reduced road miles.
You can also learn about how to care for cut flowers to get the best longevity and how to dry them as well!
