19-25 JUNE 2017

 

Started by New Covent Garden Flower Market in 2013, British Flowers Week is an annual celebration of the wealth and variety of British cut flowers and foliage.

We're shining the spotlight on British flowers, working with independent florists and the wider flower industry to show what they're made of.

 

We aim to:

Showcase great British flowers through great British floristry

Raise awareness of which British flowers are in season when

Encourage the public to buy more British flowers

 

 

Just like with food, people are increasingly demanding more locally grown flowers to celebrate the seasons and support British growers. Often scented, British flowers have a natural charm, beauty and just-picked freshness that make them the florist’s favourite.

Up until the 1970s, the only flowers you saw came from flower farmers in Britain. Today, most of the flowers in your high street flower shop will have been grown by large scale commercial growers and routed through the Dutch auctions.

We're aiming to change this. With the support of the floral industry we're bringing British back.

New Covent Garden Flower Market
Founders

We are London’s famous wholesale flower market where top florists come to buy their flowers, foliage, plants and sundries. We’re passionate about British and have been trading in British-grown flowers and foliage for centuries.

We founded the British Flowers Week campaign in 2013 to spread our passion for British flowers and foliage, and have seen it going from strength to strength ever since.
