Smiths Falls Members – General meeting
Sylvia van Oort (owner of Sylvia’s 4th Line florals) was born in 1958 in B.C. to Dutch immigrant parents. In 1975 she moved to Holland where she lived for 9 years and met and married her husband Franc. She originally studied and practised fashion design, but in 1995 made the big shift to plant and flower growing on their farm just west of Perth. From an innocent few rows of flowers planted to help out a friend, her business has grown over the past 26 years to 3 acres of cut flowers- woodies, annuals, perennials, and bulbs in fields and 3 greenhouses. She and her team grow and arrange flowers for many weddings each year and provide custom floral services, as well as providing bouquets and arrangements to many retail and wholesale customers in the Perth and Ottawa areas. Sylvia is passionate about flowers, and passionate about growing and using local flowers.
