Southern Highlands Flower Farm is a boutique flower farm that I created in the Winter of 2019, three years after falling in love with the Southern Highlands and making the quintessential tree-change from city to country.
My flower farm is born from a love of nature, inspiration from my beautiful children, support from my husband, and my obsession with epic projects!
My passion is growing a wide variety of cut-flower perennial plants, with a special focus on my favourite flowers:
DAHLIAS - 3,000+ plants, 600+ varieties/cultivars
PEONIES - 1,000 plants, 30 varieties (growing to over 2,000 in 2024!)
Growing on just under an acre of our property, my approach to flower farming is to create an abundant garden. The main productive areas are interspersed with many garden beds full of unique cut-flower perennials.
The flower farm is divided into two main fenced areas, with a rose-lined avenue between the two, bringing my love of cottage gardens to life in flower farm form.
My goal is to produce seasonal sustainable blooms that create a visual joy that I can share with our community. A smile is priceless and if I can create that with my locally grown flowers and plants, then I am a happy grower.
Our community has been and continues to be such a wonderful support, be it neighbours, local businesses, our children's school community, and everyone I have been lucky enough to meet on this journey so far.
My business is guided by the mission to take better care of our planet and live a more sustainable life. I love to share the day-to-day real-life progress of the flower farm, which you can follow on Instagram or Facebook.
Our private property is based in Penrose (just south of Bundanoon). As the farm is part of our home, we are not open to the public. You can however experience our farm by attending one of our seasonal farm experiences.

At Southern Highlands Flower Farm I grow my flowers naturally, focusing on organic methods and inputs to support and improve our environment, creating a beneficial ecosystem for our bee friends and other wildlife, and to grow with the seasons as Mother Nature intended.
My focus is on cut-flower perennials, specialising in Dahlias, Peonies and Heirloom Chrysanthemums, as well as a wide variety of seasonal perennial blooms.
My season typically runs from November to May (with a break for summer school holidays).
I share my flowers predominantly through our farm experiences and Community Outreach program.
I do supply limited flowers in season to my exclusive partners IGA Moss Vale (market bunches for retail) and Blooms of Bowral (florist supply).
Southern Highlands Flower Farm acknowledges the traditional owners and custodians of the land on which we live and work, the Gundungurra people. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
