GREEN-fingered teenager Anise Mehrez is following in his florist mum’s footsteps, by growing his own online floral business.

Jacqueline Mehrez runs Bradford on Avon’s Neston Flowers, on Church Street. Now her 13-year-old son, known to friends and family as Pod, has taken over the family garden in Neston to grow flowers and vegetables.

He said: “I go out every morning to make sure the plants are fine, and at night after school and have to stay quite late to do it. I just helped mum out, and thought I could do it too.
