The first place to try is to contact businesses on our Find a Wholesaler directory

Learn about exporting your crop too.

Where can I see flower displays, plant trials, floral exhibitions, florist demonstrations?

Here’s our list of national (and some international) horticulture exhibitions, floristry demos, garden shows, workshops and events, on our Watching Shows, Demos and Workshops page.
