Hello and welcome to this week’s episode where I’m speaking with Marianne and Camilla, joint founders of Wolves Lane Flower Company. Marianne and Camilla are on a mission to inspire everyone to have a go at growing flowers and are part of a new wave of “farmer florists” putting the environment first.
Their new book ‘How to Grow the Flowers’ charts a year at Wolves Lane Flower Company and in easy to understand and digest fashion, shows you what to do and when to do it in order to create your own flower farm at any scale.
About Wolves Lane Flower Company
Camila Romain and Marianne Mogendorff are the founders of Wolves Lane Flower Company, a micro flower farm in north London. The duo is on a mission to inspire everyone to have a go at growing flowers and were earmarked as one of British Vogue’s “most talented female gardeners” in 2020. They are part of a new wave of “farmer florists” putting the environment first.
Flowers are something we are irresistibly drawn to and turn to at the milestone moments of our lives, at births, marriages and deaths, to connect with an estranged friend, to send love or say we’re sorry. They colour our most formative experiences and are our gateway to finding our own personal relationship with the planet we inhabit. No matter the size of your garden, ‘How to Grow the Flowers’ is a practical, but approachable guide that will instill the confidence in you to grow flowers to bring into your home and enjoy all year round.
