Located in a glorious setting just north of Steyning in West Sussex, The Sussex Flower Farm is run by Shelley Marks-Thomson. Shelley has “grown her own” flowers, fruit and vegetables for over thirty years and having raised her family, longed to realise her dream of growing on a larger scale all things beautiful (and often tasty!).
Her dream became reality when in early 2014, Shelley was offered the lease on a smallholding situated on the Wiston Estate.
Shelley has always grown flowers for cutting, and had a dedicated area on one of her allotments for flowers. The allotments have now been surrendered and Shelley has completely re-located her produce to the flower farm. Having worked with children for over twenty years, Shelley also works with local primary schools, giving children the opportunity to discover and learn the joys of gardening.
