Deep in the Weald of Kent, Flower Sisters grow, cut & hand-tie seasonal flowers in a south-facing kitchen garden at historic wedding venue, Falconhurst. Each week, Felicity and Sophie gather the best of the bunch, and deliver them to local people who want to brighten up their moods and homes with a burst of colour.
On Fathers Day, 19th June 2016 as part of British Flower Week, Flower Sisters will be selling special blue coloured 'Out of the Blue' hand tied bouquets at Falconhurst, which will be open to the public for the National Garden Scheme.
10% of the proceeds will go to fundraising body, Out of the Blue, whose mission is to raise awareness of depression and mental illness and the effects of suicide and bereavement. This is in honour of Felicity's partner Nick, and father of their daughter Pansy, who tragically took his life in 2015.
Donations to Out of the Blue are welcome. There is a National Garden Scheme entrance fee of £5.00, children free, and homemade teas will also be available.
