Scottish flower growers gathered this week at Wardmill Farm, Forfar, for the first face-to-face meeting of the Flowers From Scotland group, hosted by Kelly and Valerie Orr of Blooming Bees.

The group, formed with help from ScotGov's Rural Innovation Support Service, began with eight founder members, but has now expanded, and this week's meeting was the first chance for members new and old to meet face to face, rather than on zoom.

Local Angus and Mearns MSP Mairi Gougeon – coincidentally also the cabinet secretary for rural affairs – was also onsite at Wardmill.
