Join the conversation with #BritishFlowersWeek
In 2017 #BritishFlowersWeek reached 8.7 million people on Twitter and over 2.7 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.
