I hope you had a lovely weekend. Did you see the wonderful article by Naomi Slade in The Telegraph newspaper on Saturday? It was about buying British flowers for your Valentine and featured grower and florist Georgie Newbery of Common Farm Flowers. Prompted by the article, today I thought I’d share with you details of the types of British flowers that will be available this Friday and where you can buy them. (This is another blog post that you may like to print out for or send on to your nearest and dearest!)
There are lots of homegrown flowers available in February. They include narcissi, daffodils, tulips, hellebores, ranunculus, anemones, freesias and alstroemeria.
Where you can buy British flowers
Flowers from the Farm
Visit the Growers Map on their website and you’ll be able to find a local flower grower, simply by entering your postcode. Contact the growers and they’ll tell you about their flower availability and if they offer a delivery service.
The British Flower Collective
Visit the Map of Flower Growers/Florists on their website and you’ll be able to locate your nearest supplier of British flowers.
Scilly Flowers have a wonderful selection of narcissi. They also have a special offer in February of extra flowers, if you use the code FN14 before you shop.
