Even as we flower growers and florists attempt to continue life through a global pandemic, next week (from the 15th - 21st of June) British grown flowers will be very much in the spotlight with events taking place as part of the annually run British Flowers Week.
I will be talking about this in various posts on my the floristry blog throughout next week so drop by periodically.
Many others involved in the British Flowers Movement, including my fellow Flowers From The Farm members, will also be running virtual events too - so its going to be an exciting week for British Flowers.
In our cutting garden, the sweet peas climb and the roses are starting their first flush. Even though the longest day edges closer, planting for our British grown bouquets continues. The wild edges of our canalside garden are our inspiration. Cutting fresh flowers to order in the cool mornings with the scent of the summer seasonal moment is what we grow for.
If you are interested, you can review some of my wild garden style wedding flowers ideas.
I hope my wild garden style floristry ethos resonates with you. If you want to embrace your wild romantic side and would like to discuss your forthcoming wedding event or arrange a virtual class then I'd be delighted to hear from you.
And if you’d like to see our fierce summer creations and what we’re doing in our canalside cutting garden, then come and say hello on Instagram where we post regularly.
