Started by New Covent Garden Flower Market in 2013, British Flowers Week is an annual celebration of the wealth and variety of British cut flowers and foliage.
We’re shining the spotlight on British flowers, working with independent florists and the wider flower industry to show what they’re made of.
My recent love for flowers is still a growing ambition and every growing season is still a learning curve. I take inspiration from florists and can spend hours online just browsing through bouquets put together with so much passion from the person that has grown them. It is no secret that most of the flowers on display today have been shipped in and grown by large commercial Dutch flower growers. How can they possibly be at their best after they have been through many transitions to reach our high street stores?
