British Flowers Week | Why buy British flowers?

This week it’s British Flowers Week, a spectacular national celebration of British flowers, plants and foliage founded by the New Covent Garden Market! The celebration is now in its seventh year and promotes British flowers, their growers and the independent florists working with them.

There are many reasons as to why you should buy British, it’s a no brainer! Not only will you be supporting the local industry, keeping farms happy and encouraging wildlife, but British flowers usually have a better scent than imported ones and will be fresher when they arrive. Head to the British Flowers Week website for much more information about this annual celebration of British flowers.

Have a look at our beautiful new bee bouquet. A spectacular bouquet featuring hand selected flowers most favoured by British bees. In supporting British flower growers, British bees can enjoy a wider variety of flora growing in British fields that would otherwise be left as set aside. Bees particular love purple flowers and single headed flowers for easy access to the pollen.
