The first thing you do when receiving flowers is smell them.
Dip your nose into a beautiful bouquet of fresh cut flowers grown by your local British flower farmer, and the experience is sensational. You will be enveloped in a heady concoction of delicious fragrances. You'll be charmed by their natural, soft beauty and fascinated by their variety.
When you see or smell a British flower bouquet, you can be transported by fond, childhood memories of flower-filled gardens. When was the last time you sniffed a supermarket bunch and experienced this?
Did you know that an estimated 90% of the flowers sold through UK florists, supermarkets and wholesalers are imported not just from Holland, but flown from as far afield as Ecuador, Colombia, Kenya and even Ethiopia? (Read about the carbon footprint of cut flowers here)
Isn’t it time we thought of flowers as we increasingly do about food: valuing seasonal, fresh, locally grown and more unusual varieties over mass imports?
At Flowers from the Farm, we think so.
