My name is Lisel Vonhoff from Belle Bouquets and I am a small farmer florist in the Darling Downs or to be more specific, Pechey, Queensland. Together with my husband and 4 children I live on 160 acres where along with a number of cows, a little flock of sheep and some chickens, I have a small plot where I grow a mixture of roses, dahlias and cottage annuals and during my season (September to May) I make up weekly bunches, create and work on a small amount of wedding flowers as well as floral workshops held here at my converted dairy studio. I have been growing flowers for the last 5 years or so and every year gets better and better.
