About the Event

About the talk: Approximately 90% of all cut flowers sold in the UK are imported - many are air-freighted for 1000’s of miles before they reach our shores. Ben Cross passionately believes that home-grown blooms are the best; from both an environmental and economic point of view. His family-run Sussex flower farm produces alstroemerias for the cut flower trade. Ben will talk about the history of Crosslands Farm and why alstroemerias are considered to be one of the most eco-friendly flower crops. He also takes us on a live tour around the glasshouses. The nursery is not open to the general public, so this is an excellent opportunity to have a ‘behind-the-scenes’ tour of a commercially run operation.

About the speaker: Ben is a 4th generation horticulturalist. He manages the family business nr. Chichester that was originally set up on the site by his great-grandfather.
