Roses and peonies jostle for centre stage on the #virtualBritishFlowerShow

This week our #virtualbritishflowershow celebrates the divas of the flower patch – the roses with their amazing perfumes, and those peonies which can outflounce the very flounciest things.  The sun continues to shine on our flower patches and the British flower season is now really starting to hit its stride, giving us buckets and bouquets full of gorgeous seasonal blooms.  Instagram is awash with floral abundance!

As RHS Chelsea went virtual last week also, we thought we’d start this week’s roundup with the RHS Chelsea display put on by Bella at West End Flower Farm, in collaboration with Simon Lycett and Hannah Berry Flowers.  To see the video tour of the display, just click on the picture and it will take you to the original instagram post.  And if you’d like to take a closer peek at the originators’ instagram feeds for any of the photos below, click on the picture, and it will take you right to them.
