#grownnotflown Seasonal Arrangements from The Great British Florist - 27th May 2019

By Rob Gale 3 months ago

All our fresh flower arrangements are over on our sister site The Great British Florist

Our cutting patch supplies many of our blooms here on the farm and we use a network of other British flower farmers which deliver direct into our farm floristry. We design and put together each individual posy from the mix of seasonal scented flowers which are then despatched via courier on a next day delivery service. We despatch Monday – Thursday so deliveries are between Tuesday and Friday to ensure your flowers are always fresh.

If we need to supplement our flower supplies we only use stems that are sourced in near Europe so that none of our flowers are flown in from overseas. We promise that this arrangement will contain as many British Flowers and/or Foliage as possible, often 100%. You will always have our British Grown Stem Count to rely on which is marked on each delivery note and when it’s possible to send 100% UK grown flowers you have our commitment that we will do just that.

Colours and designs will vary according to the season and what’s available at the time you order. What is guaranteed is that no two posies are ever the same and that all our posies are delightful.

Below we've got a preview of what we've been sending this past week (from 20th May) as an example - remember these arrangements will always vary on what's best in our floristry on the day!


Hand-Tied Seasonal Garden Posy £35 + £5.95 DELIVERY


Hand-Tied Seasonal Garden Posy in a Bag £35 + £5.95 DELIVERY


Hand-Tied Seasonal Garden Bouquet £50 + £5.95 DELIVERY


Seasonal Box of Cut Flowers £35 + £5.95 DELIVERY

WIGGLY WIGGLERS SEED SPOTLIGHT: Farmer Phil's Deluxe British Mix

By Rob Gale 3 months ago

Each month we'll highlight one of our fantastic seed mixes or straight seeds that we think you should try - giving you an idea of when and where to use it and what birds may like it the best!

This birdfeed is not just designed for British Birds (although it is perfect for them), no, this is British Mix because it's grown in British fields by Farmer Phil and some of his friends.

This is a high energy mix which is packed with the very best ingredients, and is wheat free.

Contains:

Black Sunflowers; Thinner shells so preferred by the birds over their striped relations, although this does make them more expensive to produce,

White Millet; A small white seed, favoured by both tree and house sparrows, reed buntings, finches and tits, siskins and wrens. It is far superior to the red variety, as it has a thin hull, so is easy for these small birds to eat.

Black Rape; A small black seed, usually grown for its high oil content, very high in protein, known by farmers as 'Black Gold'!

Linseed; Has a very high oil content, keeps birds, especially their feathers, in tip-top condition. Linseed is particularly beneficial when birds are laying or moulting, and is enjoyed by all, but in particular, the yellowhammer, whose population is currently in decline,

Groats; These are produced from Oats, which are de-hulled and fined. Excellent for weight gain and condition as they are high in fat and protein, favoured by larger birds,

Canary Seed; These are super fine, and as their name suggests, are favoured by all of the smaller birds,

and Oyster Grit; A very valuable addition to any birds diet, it enables them to efficiently grind food in their gizzard and improve their digestion of vital nutrients. It also helps to improve the quality of their eggshells.
