The Ma. Mum. Mammy. Mother. Whatever you call her, she’s one of the most influential and important women in your life. She’s probably a lot of things – colleague, cook, collector of teenagers at 3.00am; she might even be a Grandmother. One thing she isn’t though, is generic. She deserves a gift as unique as she is, and there’s no better place to find the perfect thing than right here, from a member of the Flower Farmers of Ireland.
We’re going to highlight a few of our members’ special offerings for Mother’s Day here on our Home Page, but in these energy and fuel conscious times, you might find a grower closer to home on our ‘Find a Flower Farmer’ page, so be sure to check that out too. Our members are all very friendly and would be happy to talk to you about flowers in general, and your own requirements in particular.

Kathryn from Riverview Cottage Gardens says:
“For mothers day I will be harvesting the best of the farm spring flowers to offer three special things for our lovely mums.
1. A spring flowers wreath for the Mums we’ve lost and miss so much – foraged birch and ivy base full of glorious spring flowers.
2. A large ‘Best of Spring’ Mum’s bouquet.
3. A ‘Mums and Daughters’ spring flower arrangements workshop – special time with Mum amongst gorgeous spring flowers, making a hand tied bouquet and heart door decoration to take home. Workshop wil take place 2nd April 2022, Ballintubber School hall.
These are all available on my website but limited to Roscommon area. Also available via the Roscommon producers network on www.openfoodnetwork.ie“
