Fierceblooms Anticipates An Exciting Week For The British Flowers Movement

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.

Wreath Making and legends……
In Greek legend, Sisyphus was punished in Hades for his misdeeds in life by being condemned eternally to roll a heavy stone up a hill. As he neared the top, the stone rolled down again, so that his labour was everlasting and futile.
Here in our canalside cutting garden, our seasonal Sisyphean back-breaker is lifting the leaves. There are no trees without leaves, and as we gather them on one day, so more appear the next.
So we are embracing the season of leaf lifting, and with our wild gardeb style British sustainable flowers over for another year, it is Christmas wreaths that are occupying our time.
What’s occupied your time today?
