Our farm

Powered by Flowers

As artisan growers we are custodians of the land we work on and we protect it with our sustainable approach to everything. The farm is off grid, using solar to power our chiller in summer and our propagating bench in winter. We grow all our flowers from seed and cuttings. We have no single use plastic on the farm and make mountains of compost which improves our soil. All the green waste from our shop in London returns to the farm to be turned into compost. Our ethical approach to floriculture and floristry is in our DNA, everything we do is beautiful.


THE FARMERS

Fiona Haser Bizony

Fiona Haser Bizony

Queen Bee

Dreamt up whilst Fiona was on self imposed ”gardening leave” from running an Arts centre, Electric Daisy Flower Farm was mapped out on the back of an envelope and became a reality in 2014. Fast forward a few years and her ”seed to bouquet” concept has developed into an sustainable flower farm in Somerset and an ethical flower shop near Hampstead selling her fresh-from-the-farm plants and flowers.

Rhiannon Marshall

Rhiannon Marshall

Gardener

Ria came to us as an escapee from the world of film and prop-making. She ran away to the West Country in her narrow boat and rocked up on our doorstep looking for a more sustainable work-life balance. Four years on and Ria is a fully-fledged grower. She now has her own market garden and works with us when she can fit us in.

Jane Caston

Jane Caston

Head of Propagation

Jane joined the flower farm as a casual seasonal worker, but we soon realised she was a keeper. She has been with us way beyond that first season. Her domain is the propagation poly tunnel, where she nurtures all our plants from seeds and cuttings. Thousands of plant babies go through her careful management each year. 

Bee Rivett-Carnac

Bee Rivett-Carnac

Head Gardener

Bee joined the EDFF team when we had just arrived at our forever home in Somerset. She came with market garden experience. Gradually over the years shes extracted the information she needed to become the best flower farmer in the West. When shes not plotting and planning flowers, she is a celebrated illustrator and an amazing mother to her two girls.

Robert Powell

Robert Powell

Head of Landscape

After over thirty years working for Wiltshire County Council, Robert wanted a quieter life. He came to us at the very beginning, when we were relaxed and new to the world of growing and only had a couple of flower beds. Now he maintains our two and a half acres of flower field and he certainly does not have a quiet life.

Sammy Elmore

Sammy Elmore

Head of Infrastructure and Maintenance

Flowers without irrigation would be a pretty sad bunch. Sammy worked as a plumber on The Shard in London, so his skills are invaluable when it comes to getting water to flow around our flower beds. He is also responsible for all the structures that keep our stems growing tall and straight. We would be lost without him.

Enzo Bizony

Enzo Bizony

Best Boy

Chief ratter and head of security, Enzo patrols the perimeters of the flower farm for intruders. Weve tried to co-opt him into admin, but he prefers lying in the shade waiting for unsuspecting visitors to throw his ball.

Piers Bizony

Piers Bizony

Head of random assembly jobs

Whatever is needed on the farm or at HQ, Piers will turn his hand to it, just as long as we dont ask him to do anything with the flowers. We have come through three cold, hard winters on the flower farm with only a three-sided barn for shelter. Piers has worked tirelessly with Sammy, building our cosy new barns and work rooms. Hes also handy with a camera…
