#grownnotflown Seasonal Arrangements from The Great British Florist - 10th February 2020

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 3rd Feb) as an example - remember these arrangements will always vary on what's best in our floristry on the day!

How to make really good compost

Composting is an entirely natural process. In every field and forest, plants die and decay. They are fed upon by the organisms living in the soil and eventually the plants break down and become humus, which creates a healthy base for growing once more. Garden composting is much the same process. Compost needs time and assistance to control the conditions to encourage hundreds of organisms, including worms, insects and bacteria, to thrive. They’ll then feed on the organic matter in your compost bin, producing a lovely rich dark compost. You can short-cut this process by adding a Wiggly Turbo Charger to your...

Feeding your Garden Birds this February

 In your garden bird calendar, midwinter is the high season. There are more birds of more species visiting gardens now than at any other time of year. The search for food is critical as the cold temperatures make it very difficult. Frosts and snow make foraging for insects and grubs much harder to come by and impossible for robins and thrushes to dig up worms and other invertibrates. Now is a perfect time of year to try Live Mealworms as these provide an important source of fat, protein and critically water for your feathered friends. At this time of year...
