Do florists use British flowers?

Importing flowers, often from the famous flower auctions in the Netherlands, means florists can offer a greater selection to meet customer demands. A range of varieties of flowers and plants are specially grown abroad all year round and then shipped over to the UK. This gives florists the flexibility to offer a range of popular flowers all year round - not just when they are in season.  However, many florists where possible will source and use British grown flowers. This helps support the local flower industry and great prices from local growers. This can mean that flowers are more seasonal, for instance the stunning British Sunflowers bloom in Summer months so are only available in this period.
