British Flowers Week – a campaign owned by New Covent Garden Market, the UK’s premier wholesale Flower Market – will take place next week, between June 26th and June 30th.
The annual week-long celebration of British flowers and the British floral industry highlights the beauty and variety of British cut flowers, foliage and plants, as well as the amazing work of the British florists, growers and wholesalers who put flowers in the spotlight.
Anyone and everyone who loves British flowers is encouraged to get involved by decorating their windows with British flowers to mark the week. Whether it’s with a single stem, a bouquet made from garden flowers or a spectacular display, a decorated window will signal support this June.
Fully engaging the social media audience is key to the celebration, so while you’re at @marketflowers in the next few days, look for the four celebratory signs on the outside of the market, take your picture with them and tag us in – we’re expecting plenty of creativity!! This morning, we spotted sisters Kat Short and Nikki Lemons of Wickham in Hampshire doing just that and even snapped them with some lovely homegrown delphiniums!
Share your creations, your stories, your passion and your work with the floral community – using the hashtags and handles below is key. We want to see everyone who is involved in or amazed by the sector enthused by the incredible array of homegrown blooms, foliage and plants that’s in season at that time of year.
