Elonor Tivey, 47, has farmed bright peonies on a seven acre field near Osgathorpe, Leicestershire since 2017.

Elonor sends flowers in refrigerated vans to weddings and florists across the country and says sales have doubled every year since her first harvest in 2021.

She will soon be reaping an extra 2,500 plants once a two acre expansion planted last year starts flowering in 2025.

Elonor says British-grown peonies are always "catnip" for flower fans – and that the demand for homegrown blooms is growing.

Every time Tegiye went to the shops or got a coffee, she put aside £2.68 ($5AUD).

She saved up £800 ($1,500AUD) in just four months, allowing her to launch her business Saf Organics brand – which now makes £32,000 ($60,000AUD) a month.

Saf Organics came away with a £5,357 ($10,000AUD) profit in its first month after selling out of natural deodorant on its opening night.
