1 Min Read

Gazing out across the beds of brightly-colored seasonal blooms at her Moorngag property, Melissa Mounsey never envisaged becoming a flower farmer.

“I do, however, think I was always meant to be a florist,” she said. “I remember picking posies from my family garden as a little girl.”

After finishing school, Melissa learned the ropes at a little florist in Benalla before heading to the big smoke, working in a few boutique florists around Melbourne before taking her artistry to the next level.

“I then managed the flower department at the Grand Hyatt and Park Hyatt Hotel,” said Melissa.
