Instagram isn’t just a social platform; it’s a vibrant marketplace, a community hub, and visual storytellers — all rolled into one. For flower farmers looking to nurture their virtual garden, here are 25 Instagram ideas that will help your account flourish just as your flowers do.

  1. Sneak Peeks of New Varieties Whet your followers’ appetites with glimpses of new flower varieties you’re cultivating – whether you’re ordering seeds or harvesting. These posts can generate buzz and drive engagement through anticipation.
  2. Time-lapse Videos Capture the marvel of growth with time-lapse videos from seedling to bloom. This is a great option for winter content, when you’re starting seedlings indoors. It’s a fascinating way to show the lifecycle of your flowers and provides some much-needed content, too!
  3. Customer Features Share photos and stories of happy customers. Encourage them to tag your farm when they post photos of your flowers in their homes, and request to re-post.
  4. Flower Arrangement Tutorials Post short videos or step-by-step guides on creating stunning arrangements. Bonus points for using your own blooms.
  5. Daily Blooms Feature a ‘Bloom of the Day’ showcasing the freshest picks from your fields. It’s a great way to keep content flowing regularly and to keep your customers up-to-date on what’s in bloom.
  6. Meet the Farmer People connect with people. A ‘Farmer Friday’ can be a chance to introduce members of your team and their stories.
  7. Field Tours Take followers on a virtual tour of your farm. Highlight the flowers currently in season (and those coming up!) as you walk through the rows.
  8. Behind-the-Scenes Show the less glamorous, but equally important, aspects of flower farming. It builds authenticity and transparency.
