Wherever military life has taken her and her family around the world, Justine Scouller has created a flower-filled garden, only to be heartbroken when the time came to leave for the next posting. When the family finally moved into their forever home, a farmhouse in the Monmouthshire hills, Justine’s first priority was the garden.
It was after studying Horticulture at Sparsholt College that Justine embarked on a career as a flower farmer. She has demonstrated and designed exhibits at RHS flower shows, created arrangements for countless weddings and events and in 2019, Justine took on the role of Co-Chair of Flowers from the Farm. Lockdown has been challenging for Justine’s event flowers business, tucked away down the rural lanes and away from passing traffic, and yet she has noticed a marked increase in people seeking her out for local bouquet orders, funeral flowers and buckets of flowers for arranging.
“The more people who discover the benefits of beautiful, locally grown, seasonal, scented cut flowers over hothouse, imported flowers, the better. We hope to inspire local buying habits that will last well beyond lockdown,” says Justine.
