Cousins Jen and Bek run Blooming Green, growing seasonal, organically grown flowers for weddings and events on an acre plot in the middle of their family fruit farm near Maidstone. As well as offering pick-your-own wedding flowers -- at the moment they are, as far as they know, the only people in the country who are doing this -- they also run courses and workshops. They are also big fans of the 'bo-dig' method of gardening. They started the business almost ten years ago, and their talk covers the learning curve of setting up their own business, their experience of appearing on television with Monty Don and their plans for the future.
