This annual celebration of seasonal, locally-grown flowers and foliage is uniting the UK cut flower industry and sparking public and media interest in where our flowers come from.

We are shining a spotlight on the best of British cut flowers and working with the very best independent British florists to show just what British flowers are made of!

Right now, British cut flowers are enjoying a resurgence in demand. Just as interest in locally-grown food has grown, so people are once again appreciating the value of locally-grown, freshly cut flowers.

Up until the 1970s, the only flowers you would ever see in the Flower Markets and nurseries came from flower farmers in Britain.
Today, the vast majority of flowers in your high street flower shop will have been grown by large scale commercial growers in Holland, South America and Africa and routed through the Dutch auctions.

British Flowers Week is bringing British cut flowers back.
