Philippa Craddock talks in this second episode of her podcast series with Maggie Hobbs, co-owner of the extraordinary Kenyan flower farm Tambuzi Roses.

Innovative Sustainable Farm

Maggie and her husband Tim are at the forefront of welfare, fairtrade and environmental concerns. There is a strong and important focus on sourcing locally, but it is not always possible – in these circumstances, we must look to overseas growers who embrace sustainability.

We have been lucky to work with Maggie for many years. Tambuzi grows some of the most beautiful, highly fragrant roses in the world and are constantly exploring innovative practices. Maggie’s story is fascinating and inspiring, and it will undoubtedly change the way you think about buying flowers.
