Flowers from an English Country Garden – we grow only the very best!
Chelsea Flower Show, RHS Gold medal wining, David Austin Roses, Eagle Sweet peas, Café Au Lait Dahlia’s our list is growing!
An alternative to the factory bred flowers that have never seen the sun, had raindrops on their leaves or their pollen taken by busy Bees.
Channel 4’s The Billion Dollar Flower Marker shows the flowers we buy coming from overseas warehouses.
All nature removed. Sunlight is artificial lamps in the ceiling, water and nutrients piped into plastic wrapped growing blocks.
Roses devoid of any scent flown thousands of miles from Kenya and South America. In order to make these flowers last the journey they are treated with silver nitrite so that any scent that had not already been bred out (in favour of vase life and perfect buds) is then lost in the conditioning.
For a country famous for it’s gardens we see very few varieties that are available. Your supermarket will probably have Daffodils, and Tulips, Alstroemerias, Lillies and Stocks, Sunflowers, Gerbera and Roses, but then you have to start thinking quite hard to get different varieties that are likely to be available.
Florists try hard to stock a wider range, but even they are stymied by the wholesale market that only takes flowers that are hardy enough to be transported round the world via Holland, and those flowers may be 6-8 days since picking before they get to our retailers, let alone our homes.
