‘Amy likes flowers’

Flower Project is my own small business on the Dartington Hall Estate in South Devon. I came to Dartington to study Sustainable Horticulture at Schumacher College and from those tentative beginnings and from tending a cascade of sweet peas at School Farm, my love for flowers flourished under the guidance of Nick Gooderham. Most of my fellow Schumacher students were much keener on food production, so it soon became a class mantra that ‘Amy likes flowers’! But then I always did. Training in textile design shaped my love of colour and form. A developing knowledge of organic growing and environmental concerns now goes hand in hand with my passion for British cut flowers and love of the English landscape.
