Ruth Fortune Flowers is a small flower farm and floristry business based  in Glandore Village, in west  Cork.

I have been growing flowers commercially since 2013.  Previously I worked as an architect but I was looking for a way to make a living back home on the family farm – and in the fresh air.  I like to think my design skills still come in handy whether making a large floral installation or a tiny buttonhole.

I use the freshest of homegrown flowers together with herbs, grasses and wild and cultivated greenery to make arrangements for all occasions as well as for the kitchen table. We can grow a huge variety of beautiful, delicate and scented flowers here in Ireland and I love combining and arranging them to show the beauty of each one to the full.

I love to supply flowers for the important moments in your life.  Whether it’s a wedding, a party or a funeral, it’s an opportunity to create something really special, personalised and beautiful.

Equally I love being part of the thriving community of growers and makers that can be found at Skibbereen Farmers Market and my bouquets are available there every Saturday from March to October.
