Highland Hydroponic Roses

From Country Life, 9:16 pm on 15 November 2013

Anne Mackersey and her husband Alistair Grant grow roses hydroponically in the middle of a sheep and beef farm in Bay of Plenty. They send blooms to Wellington florists year round but say because they're small, high quality producers, their business is threatened by low cost flower imports from places like India, and if people want small local businesses to survive, they need to support them.
