Starting a flower or gardening business online

Posted: 13/10/2015 at 14:43

I recently sent cut flowers to a location a couple of hundred miles away. I have never liked using Interflora ( v. expensive). So I googled the post code on maps and found the nearest florist, rang them, (they even knew my friend's christian name!) and ordered their cheapest bouquet () when it arrived, it was so huge that it filled 3 vases.

I answer to the original question, I think the advice about starting small makes sense.

swedboy, I think that there is about 10cm between layers. Try Garden Organic, they may have a design for making one (they are a bit pricey to buy).

One book I forgot to mention is Chris Beardshaw's; How does your garden grow. It is botany, and the science of growing, taking cuttings etc, but for the layman.
