ABout Teneale

My name is Teneale and I have been designing with flowers since 2014. I have been learning about my craft constantly over that period. Since 2018, following meeting my floral design inspiration and mentor, Sue MCleary, I became completely foam-free and looked to explore more sustainable practices in my journey.

I decided in early 2019 I wanted to farm and design with my own flowers. That is where the seed for this journey was planted. My flower planting journey started with much up and down in 2021. My first seeds were planted in March, of which I killed all of them. I then started again. I grow in my Mother – Cindy’s garden. We plan and grow together, and she will be adding a Dahlia breeding area in 2022.

I have been inspired by the flowers you cannot get. I can only be a great designer if I have the best materials to work with. This is where the research began, and I decided to do Floret’s online workshop. I also then relentlessly started searching and finding the blooms I wanted. I have since connected with incredible women across the country also growing their dreams.

I hope to teach and inspire more farmers with our journey and one day realize a network of amazing flower farmers across this country!

the farm

I grow on less than a hectare of land. Utilizing all the space carefully as well as making it a serene oasis to get lost in. I have taken over my mom’s garden in 2021 and in 2022 we are more than doubling. Planning the area out to make the most out of the space but also make it a usable space for workshops, events and shoot location. We will also have a breeding garden for new varieties and a garden dedicated to growing grasses, pods and grains for the dried market. We grow completely organically and no chemicals are added to our garden. 

We plan on having seasonal festivals to kick off the new season and celebrate all that is beautiful and bountiful within that season.

We would like this to not only be a cutting garden but an inspirational space to be enjoyed and to learn and cultivate your creativity in.
