A GROUP of growers from Perthshire and Fife will hold their first pop-up flower market at Giraffe Laidside in Perth today.

Today’s market will be open to florists from 9.30am to 10.30am and then to members of the public from 11.30am to 12.30pm.

The collective consists of East Lothian Flower Farm, Flora Alba, Keeping The Plot, Mayfield Flowers, PYRUS, Scottish Cut Flowers, and Tomnah’a Market Garden.
