'Good Seed' Varieties

Flower Farmers
Flower Farmers must be artisanal and produce flowers for the local, regional or domestic market and should be committed to using sustainable slow flower farming practices whenever possible. Your flower farm is beyond a cutting garden; it is a micro farming enterprise and you seek to help promote sustainable, seasonal, bee-friendly flowers in Australia.

Farmer-Florists
Farmer-Florists must grow more than a standard garden's-worth of flowers sustainably with the express intention to offer those flowers and floral design services locally or regionally, whereby designing is a significant part of the business and you seek to help promote sustainable, seasonal, bee-friendly flowers in Australia.

Florists/Designers
Florists and Floral Designers must be committed to sourcing and using locally-grown seasonal flowers and foliage from local, micro slow-flower farmers whenever possible and in the off-season or when local sources are not available they must prioritise Australian-grown products over imported ones and you seek to help promote sustainable, seasonal, bee-friendly flowers in Australia.

Seedlings
You're just starting out, but you have passion and commitment and will work hard and ethically to grow your micro seasonal flower farming business and you seek to help promote sustainable, seasonal, bee-friendly flowers in Australia.

'Good Seed' Guidelines

To maintain the authenticity and collaborative ethos of Consortium Botanicus' vision, we only feature Seedlings, Flower Farmers and Farmer-Florists who grow flowers for their local, regional and/or domestic market and Florists/Designers who are committed to using local, seasonal, sustainably-farmed flowers sourced from micro flower farms whenever possible.

We embrace trustworthiness, integrity, collaboration, community spirit, generosity, kindness and friendship. We do not welcome jealousy, greed, envy, imitation, undermining, back-stabbing or monopolisation. Life's too short and we've got farms and florals to tend to.

Consortium Botanicus reserves the right to refuse any submission if it presents false or misleading information, fails to adhere to the Consortium's 'Good Seed' Guidelines, is inconsistent with Consortium Botanicus' ethics or for any other reason/s deemed necessary to protect the integrity and ethos of Consortium Botanicus and its authentic committed members.
