To whom it may concern,
I am currently planning on opening in my hometown in Lebanon-Beirut a flower shop selling flowers and edible flowers as well. I am in the research phase and searching for a professional gardener that Is ready to move to Lebanon and knows everything about edible flowers and plants.

Kindly let me know if anyone can help

Hi Lila and welcome to NGA!

Your shop sounds wonderful. You'd probably have better luck finding someone in your hometown or surrounding areas. You might try a University Botany Department.

Considering the political climate here and abroad, I doubt you'll have anyone willing to relocate to the Middle East.

Here is a link which lists Universities in Lebanon:

Hi lila, Welcome!
Good luck with your endeavor of opening a flower shop in your city! I hope you find a professional gardener for your project but I don't know of anyone who would be willing to move to Lebanon to fill the position. Maybe you can advertise in your local newspaper or better yet, check with a local college or university in your area which might have horticultural programs and possibly professors or even students who might be able to help.

Looks like I cross posted with Anne and we have the same thoughts.

Some universities in the US have international agreements. The University of Auburn had such an agreement with Lebanon but I do not know the current status. You could try contacting them. The contact information is at the bottom of this page:

Good luck in your efforts and I hope you succeed.
