British Flowers Week 2019
07 June 2019
One of our favourite weeks in the flower event calendar, British Flowers Week is now JUST around the corner! Running from the 10th-16th June, British Flowers Week is a national campaign highlighting British grown flowers and foliage. Uniting florists, British growers, wholesalers and the general public, British Flowers Week encourages everyone to buy seasonal, locally grown cut flowers.
Bringing blooming marvelous British flowers to homes nationwide!
British Flowers Week is the brainchild of the team at New Covent Garden Flower Market, where British flowers have been traded for centuries. The idea behind the week is a chance to put in the spot light locally grown, seasonal flowers and tell the story behind them.
Why buy British flowers from your local florist
British flowers such as happy sunflowers, alliums, delphiniums, gypsophila, freesia, scented garden roses, stunning lupin and sweet peas are grown and cut by experts, before being used by local florists. Choosing to buy British seasonal flowers from your local florist has a range of benefits; fresher flowers, supporting small local businesses, more eco friendly.
Florists across the UK will be holding special events such as British flowers workshops & classes and creating unique bouquets using British flowers & foliage.
