Francis says

"Flower farming has been a lifelong interest for me and I am now the last flower farmer on St Agnes. My family has been on St Agnes since the 1600’s with the farm being started by my grandfather and then passed down through the generations. After spending 3 years studying towards a degree in horticulture at London University I returned to the island to begin looking after the farm when I was 21 years old and have continued for the past 50 years so have seen many changes to flower farming in my time. I specialise in multiheaded narcissi such as Scilly White and Soleil D’or."
