Rosie Gray & Ken Leslie grow thousands of stems each year at the wildlife-rich Flower Farm between Castle Douglas & New Galloway.
A wide range is grown - from classic cut garden flowers such as Roses, Sweet Peas, Dahlias & Tulips to many unusual varieties rarely seen in a Supermarket or High Street Florist.
Rosie & Ken have years of experience growing flowers & enjoy sharing their tips & techniques to help you do so too.
Galloway Flowers has been awarded the UNESCO Galloway & South Ayrshire Biosphere Certification Mark in recognition of their commitment to sustainable horticulture & floristry.
