Specialty Cut Flower Grower


Matt and Heather talk to Warren Thomas, marketing and events manager at the Urbana Business Association, and Kent Miles from Illinois Willows about being a specialty cut flower grower.

In 1999, Kent Miles purchased a corn field with a dream of growing flowers and woody ornamentals for consumers. This started the wholesale floral trade. Kent focuses on growing some of the different or unusual flowers that are uncommon in the local flower shops.
