Beechfield Flower Farm is located on the village of Tobermore, Northern Ireland, on the main A29. A love for planting seeds and growing plants started many years ago as a young child. In recent years I have grown bedding plants and shrubs for the summer season selling filled hanging baskets, window boxes & containers to lots of lovely customers and have been fortunate to build up a collection of corporate customers too. I have now taken things a step further by planting loads of flower bulbs and seeds for the Cut Flower Market.
From preparing the ground in winter to sowing the seeds in Spring and harvesting the beautiful blooms it is a real joy to work with nature and admire the wonders of creation in the world around us. As a cut flower grower I aim to provide my customers with an array of fresh, seasonal and locally produced flowers that will give you the feeling of a lovely handpicked bunch of flowers straight from the cottage garden. So often today the flowers are flown in from all over the world and look beautiful but don’t always have the scent that we all expect them to have. The first thing most of us do is to lift the bouquet or bunch of flowers and smell them. Very often this can be a disappointment with little or even worse no scent at all.
Our Flowers will be grown locally meaning that the quality of the flowers will be a lot fresher. No chemicals will be used in the conditioning of the flowers and they will be picked the day before or on the morning the order is due to go out ensuring they are as fresh as possible. Many of the lovely rustic and vintage flowers we associate with the handpicked look do not travel well and don’t last well therefore the large wholesalers are unable to bring them into the country. We aim to give you the shabby chic, natural and wild look you want for that special occasion without the hassle of sourcing them from afar!
In Spring and early Summer there will be Narcissi, Hyacinths, Anemones, Ranunculi and Tulips and Wallflowers.
At the height of Summer there will be Sweet Pea, Sweet William, Cosmos, Anterhiumum, Roses, Delphiniums, Larkspur, Astrantia, Daisies and Cornflowers to name but a few. Late Summer and Early Autumn will bring Dahlias, Sunflowers, Hydrangeas and many more. We can also supply local businesses, hotels, restaurants and sell wholesale to florists.
