Meet 4 British flower growers:
UK: The British flowers of Marks & Spencer
Firstly, Simon Richards visits Burly Lane Farm, who grows peonies on the open field in Melbourne. In September 2014, theses peonies were planted. Then, he visits Tuxhill Farm in Terrington St Clement, a greenhouse in which seven different colors of scented stocks are being grown. "The scent is typically for British stocks", says Simon. Afterwards the flower developer for Marks and Spencers visits Park Farm, who grows Sweet Williams on the open field in Surfleet. They are aiming to rotate between flowers and potatoes. "If you plant Sweet Williams, they leave nutrients in the soil which is beneficial for the cultivation of potatoes," says the grower of Park Farm. Also Double H Nurseries in New Milton was visited. They grow orchids for M&S for over the last 10 years. "We take an orchid plant, pot it up, grow it for a half a year at 30 degrees. When it is big enough we plant it in a 20 degrees environment. That shock is what causes the flowering response" explains the grower of Double H Nurseries.
