Join the conversation with #BritishFlowersWeek

In 2016 #BritishFlowersWeek reached 8.7 million people on Twitter and over 3 million on Instagram. Florists and growers were tweeting alongside The RHS, Country Living, Gardens Illustrated, Homes & Gardens, GQ, The Daily Telegraph and The Daily Express to name but a few.

We are aiming to smash last year’s record and you can help simply by using the hashtag #BritishFlowersWeek on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook in all your British Flowers Week posts.


Make an event of it

Get involved by organising your own British Flowers Week events with other local florists' or growers' networks and let British Flowers Week HQ know what you're up to. We'll post what you're up to on this very website and spread the word as part of our media campaign. Simply email your events and information to hello@cgma.co.uk using the form below.


Fly the flag

You can get FREE British Flowers Week gift tags and double-sided A3 posters from our friends at The Paper Studio. They look fab, and highlight to your customers which flowers are actually British. If customers are faced with an option to buy British, they often do.

Simply order online at: www.thepaperstudio.co.uk

The British Flowers Week flag is also free and quick to download. Why not post it on your website, attach it to your email signature or use it on flyers and posters?


Fancy some media coverage?

Let your local radio, papers and TV know what you have planned for British Flowers Week!

We’ve prepared a media release template for you. Simply download it, fill in your details and get your local area talking British!


Stay in season

Fancy knowing what’s in flower when? Then you will love our British Seasonal Chart. It details the seasonal availability (weather permitting, of course!) of over 100 British-grown cut flowers and flowering foliages.

2. Order a free A3 double-sided poster from our friends at The Paper Studio

3. Have an A1 British Flowers Chart posted to you anywhere in the UK

4. Download a printable A4 version
