Get ready for British Flowers Week! From 18-24 June we're celebrating British flowers and the people who grow them, sell them and create stunning designs using them.

This is our sixth year running this campaign that's all about bringing together independent florists, wholesalers and flower growers to raise awareness of British flowers and foliage.

Brand new for this year, we’re teaming up with the Garden Museum to put six specially commissioned, all British floral designs from six amazing florists on display. You’ll be able visit the installations at the Garden Museum from Monday 18 to Sunday 24 June.

It’s the first public show of floral designs in the history of British Flowers Week, and we're amazed with what our florists created. If you’re not able to visit, don’t worry. You can see the installations on the British Flowers Week website.
