I would love to move to England. It’s a heaven for garden lovers. And they organise amazing events around flowers. Like the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and from 15th – 19th of June the British Flowers Week.

British Flowers week is the ground-breaking campaign from New Covent Garden Flower Market that brings growers, florists and the buying public in a national celebration of British cut flowers.

Much as consumers have embraced locally- grown food, so they are starting to appreciate the value of British flowers and foliages. British flowers have charm, grace, scents and sustainability.

The ultimate aim of New Covent Garden Flower Market is to bring British flowers back into British homes.

Exclusive floral designs

At the heart of British Flowers Week is the work of 5 top florists, whom they commissioned to create 15 exquisite designs exclusively for British Flowers Week 2015, to be released over the 5 days of British Flowers Week.

My absolute favorite hand-tie bouquet is designed by Hattie Fox, owner of That Flower Shop in London’s fashionable East End, and one of the featured florists of British Flowers Week 2015.

Hattie’s design is wild and loose and overflowing with locally-grown nepeta, delphinium, astrantia, ox-eye daisies, foxgloves, stocks, peonies offset by green hornbeam, cotoneaster, eucalyptus and the yellow pop of euonymous and golden privet.

Did you have a chance to visit? Would it be an event every country should have around their national cut flowers? Please share your opinion with me.
