Maria Ryan is the flower farmer behind Bell Meadow a small scale flower farm in rural Tullow, Co. Carlow. I am passionate about growing flowers and the joy and beauty that they bring to people’s lives. Sweet peas, dahlias, peonies, snapdragons are among my favourite flowers and I love to seek out new or uncommon varieties to grow!
I currently sell flowers to florists, bouquets locally and also through the Neighbourfood Carlow. Dried flowers are for sale through my website for nationwide delivery.
Bell Meadow has launched a new seed collection to help people to grow beautiful flowers like sweetpeas in their own gardens and to encourage pollinators. I am in my second year studying organic horticulture along with growing my flower farm.
