British Supporting Local Growers

Many British are concerned by the fact that their fruits and vegetables are flown in from the other side of the world but not many of them think of the fact that most of the flowers they buy are also imported, around 90 percent.

British Supporting Local Growers

Britain has a very good growing climate and some very good growers. The problem is that the British not only demand strawberries 12 months a year, but also roses and peonies. However, England has some very beautiful flowers like roses, sweet peas, peonies, dahlias, lilies, narcissi, and tulips. At least one of these flowers is always in season, and they ought to be celebrated.

The campaign for homegrown flowers took another step at the cut-flower wholesale market at Nine Elms in London. This event paired British growers with London florists.

Florists from all around the country came to participate. All the professionals were there to answer the question of why people prefer to buy some refrigerated flowers, instead of taking a bit more initiative and buying British flowers at the market.

They arrived at the conclusion that it is only a fact of digging a little deeper in one’s pockets. Britain has many beautiful and delicate flowers to choose from all year round.
