British flowers week is fast approaching (19th-25th June) - it is a celebration of the wealth and variety of British cut flowers and foliage started by New Covent Garden Flower Market in 2013. British flowers have a natural charm and beauty, are often scented, and because of their just picked freshness they are surprisingly long lasting.
We love the fact that you are showing increasing interest in British grown flowers - whether it's to display in your home or decorate your wedding venue. We've selected a few of our seasonal favourites below to help you choose grown not flown!
