@ Kumeu Flower Farm we are a Team of three very creative sisters. Angelique Lambermon a Landscape Architect and Director, Monique Lambermon a Couturier and 2IC Floral Designer, and Mieke Lambermon our Marketing and Event Design Manager. We also have a small team of amazing ladies, supporting us, and who help with all the hard work needed to create our very unique and rustic Flowers. Without their hard work we wouldn't be here!
We are Artisan Growers offering locally grown handcrafted seasonal flowers. We can grow your wedding flowers from seed-to-centerpiece’ as well as hand craft your very own floral design. We are passionate about exclusively using local ingredients, nearly all of which comes from our Farm in Kumeu, Auckland, New Zealand. We take great pride in having intimate knowledge of where your wedding flowers are grown and the sustainable practices behind them.
Hi my name is Angelique Lambermon, and I am the business owner, Landscape Architect and passionate plants woman. I have had a life long passion for design that encourages more natural, eco-friendly practices and includes more organic design with plants themselves rather than using the hard elements to form the design. As a Landscape Architect I have seen over the years many gardens and landscapes ecologically destroyed and put aside for the more 'no or low maintenance gardens". And you may not know this, but the floral industry is one of the largest influences in the decline of the bees, due to the heavy chemical and pesticide uses to get that Perfect looking cut flower! So I carry my Ethos of being natural and organic into our world of cut flowers, so we can feel safer and healthier along with the bees and our plants and very importantly the end user, You!
While we are not certified organic at this time, no petro-chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides are ever used in our growing practices. We tailor-make our own natural sprays to enhance the plants natural defenses along with a select group of other natural and organic materials.
Half our flower crop is grown in an older style hydroponic system and the other half are in purpose built raised garden beds. Even though we grow in an older style greenhouse, and the plants are protected, they are still subject to the changing weather patterns of the seasons outside, so we are continually assessing the flowers health and well-being in each of the beds and adjusting their environment if needed to keep up with the changing seasons.
