Press release

Here at An Tobar , we are extremely excited to bring to you our new

U-Pick Flower Farm and our An Tobar Posies Brand Bouquets.


There has been a great increase in demand and popularity for home-grown cut flowers in Britain and Ireland in recent years. Indeed, this growing movement is particularly well underway in the US and the Continent.

Customers who wonder about food miles for their vegetables etc are now concerned about the huge energy it requires to produce and ship flowers many thousands of miles from around the world, and so the increase in farm gate and farm shop sales.

In terms of sheer cost per stem buying a home-grown bouquet is indeed much, much less!!

Add to this the superiority in quality in terms not only of variety, scent, and longevity , but also  the more environmentally friendly methods of ‘’home grown’’ crops and it’s a win-win situation.


And what about growing your own in a patch at home??

Imagine the sheer fun and creativity in growing and arranging your own flowers !.

We have been busy sowing and planting a huge range of carefully chosen cut flower varieties.

Book your place on one of our 3 weekly seminars, which will run both on Fridays and Saturdays. (Friday and Saturdays workshops are the same/repeats to allow more people to attend)
