Since 1995 when founding director, Rosebie Morton first started growing scented garden roses in the walled garden at her family farm in Hampshire, the team at The Real Flower Company has stayed true to its mission to bring exquisitely scented natural roses, flowers, herbs and foliage back into the floristry and cut flower market.
More scented than ordinary flowers
Few modern cut roses feature any trace of scent. This is because most commercially grown flowers have had their scent gene genetically removed to increase their durability and longevity. In contrast, The Real Flower Company is passionate about restoring the growing of exquisitely scented roses and flowers just as nature intended. These stunning varieties have their scent gene firmly intact. Over the years, and much trial and error, Rosebie Morton has searched for, curated and now grows the world’s finest selection of scented cut roses that as well as being beautiful, boast an exquisite variety of scents.
Promoting provenance and sustainability
Hinton Ampner, Hampshire
This farm nestled in the South Downs National Park, is where hand-tended garden roses, wildflowers, herbs and foliage are grown. Full of natural charm, character and the vital ingredient – scent, responsibly grown with sustainable farming techniques and eco-initiatives. Certified under the Assured Combinable Crops Scheme, and part of the Countryside Stewardship Scheme this 11 acre farm is a member of the Farm Wildlife Advisory Group.
Enormous care is taken to contain soil structure and use minimal tillage to improve and maintain good nature, fertility and worm populations. Drip irrigation is essential to avoid soil erosion and waste. The roses are never sprayed when in flower which protects several varieties of bees and other insects which are feeding. Dotted about the paddock are hives which encourage these bees which, in turn help pollination.
All the plant and rose bushes are planted through specialist matting that suppresses weeds, negating any use of weed killers. Biologicals are used instead of sprays to control some pests. Guinea fowl and bantams roam free keeping aphids and unwanted insects at bay. All The Real Flower Company produce conforms to the LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming) standard.
Chichester, West Sussex
