In a series of podcasts, Philippa Craddock - the florist who created flower arrangements for the British royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle - talks with several people with design, flowers, plants, fragrance and well being at the core. Her latest guest is Maggie Hobbs of Kenyan farm Tambuzi Roses.
Maggie and Tim Hobbs.
"Maggie and her husband Tim are at the forefront of Welfare, Fairtrade and environmental concerns. There is a strong and important focus on sourcing locally, but it is not always possible - in these circumstances, we must look to overseas growers who embrace sustainability", says Craddock.
"We have been lucky to work with Maggie for many years. They grow some of the most beautiful, highly fragrant roses in the world and are constantly exploring innovative practices. Maggie’s story is fascinating and inspiring, and it will undoubtedly change the way you think about buying flowers."
