Making a living out of what you like doing best is a good wheeze. Charlie Ryrie loves growing stuff and launched her new business, The Real Cut Flower Garden, to justify growing even more. She saw, also, a gap in the cut flower market. "We mail out bunches of the kind of flowers you might pick in your own garden, if you had one," she explains.

She cuts much of her greenery from the hedges round her Herefordshire garden; the pony paddock behind is lined out with vast quantities of annuals and herbaceous perennials.
