The National Cut Flower Centre (CFC) is based at Rookery Farm, Holbeach St Johns, Lincolnshire. Its aim, with funding from AHDB Horticulture, is to offer independent trialling of a range of cut flowers crops, evaluate new production methodologies and examine new cultural techniques in the UK. The CFC’s remit includes annual, perennial and bulbous flowers, ‘fillers’, foliage and woody branches grown in the field, in polythene tunnels and under ‘cold glass’.

 

A series of factsheets have been produced by AHDB Horticulture and CFC for growers. Those who have not received a hard copy of the factsheet, or require extra copies should contact comms@ahdb.org.uk or alternatively you can download the factsheets below:
