Starting a flower or gardening business online

Posted: 09/10/2015 at 10:57

Isn't that just what Interflora do?  They don't own the flower shops - individual floristry businesses provide flowers advertised and co-ordinated by the Interflora brand.

Are you planning some sort of flower delivery business?

Overview of the summer season- How has your's been?

A mixed year here in central Norfolk.

Best year for a long time for outdoor toms here, despite a late start. 

Poorest year ever for courgettes, but we're still getting the occasional one. 

Great crop of autumn-sown broad beans - it was hard to keep up with them.

Runner beans - so so, have had better years.

Chillies - outdoor - a better crop than last year.

Autumn raspberries (Polka) fantastic crop

First bunches of grapes on a three year old outdoor vine Boskoop Glory - delish

Figs (Brown Turkey) were late to get going and most won't ripen now.

Gooseberry (Hinnomaki yellow) a good crop on a three-year old bush.

Rhubarb - fantastic crop - third year of picking.

Purple sprouting broccoli was really good this spring.  Next spring's crop looks promising as the plants are growing away well, no caterpillar damage and they're netted against the pigeons - fingers are very crossed.

Early salad stuff was good but the later stuff just didn't perform well.

We had a couple of pages of spam Fidget - had we thought we could have saved it for you to make sandwiches for tomorrow just in case of gatecrashers!

Yes it's the spammer posting a load of garbage just to clog up the forum - some people find it a pleasant/worthwhile way of passing the time  ............. apparently

The Mods seem to have dealt with it bless 'em

Lovely sunny morning - hot air balloon just drifting over our house - they take off from a field down the road - I imagine the view from up there is wonderful this morning
