Collection: About Us
Florelie is a small scale, specialty cut flower farm in Bungaree, near Ballarat, Victoria, Australia.
Positioned on 20 acres, we currently grow flowers on about 1 acre of the property. Dahlias are the primary crop with other summer annuals grown to coincide with their flowering season. A smaller crop of spring blooming flowers is also grown including peonies, ranunculus and bearded iris.
Each season we curate a collection of beautiful blooms in desirable colours for florists and the general public.
We are delighted to offer Australian gardeners a high quality source of Australian dahlia tubers. Our range of dahlia tubers includes a large number of our own specialty varieties from our breeding program.
You can check out our dahlia tuber availability in our online shop. The shop opening date varies each year depending on the season, usually July-August. You can sign up to be notified via email of dahlia tuber sales and workshops as well as receive helpful tips for growing your own gorgeous dahlias.
Lorelie has always loved flowers however never thought she would become a flower farmer. A gifted bunch of homegrown peonies sparked the dream of growing flowers on their property.
She continued to work her job as a Speech Pathologist alongside the farm until 2021 when she made the switch to full time flower farming.
Breeding dahlias is a particular passion of Lorelie’s and this takes up more space on the farm each year. She loves researching new and interesting things to grow.
Hannah has been working with Lorelie and the family since the winter 2020 season digging and dividing dahlias. After coming back during the winter season of 2021, she stayed on full time.
She completed her Bachelor of Agriculture in 2018 and has worked a variety of farm jobs since then.
Hannah lives in Clunes with her husband, 5 ducks and 2 chickens – as well as a growing plant collection!
Laura lives nearby in Creswick and is a mother to 3 and a wife.
