Flowers are fantastic aren’t they?
They look great, smell wonderful and a beautiful bouquet makes the perfect gift for any and all occasions. There is a long history of floristry in the UK, we began the practice in the 19th century after all. So it comes as no surprise that many of us still have a romantic notion of fresh flowers sold by farmers in markets up and down the country.
However, the reality of floristry and flower delivery in the UK does not bear comparison to the cottage industry of our imaginations. The rise of machine cut flowers, and machine tied bouquets, sold cheap in supermarkets and petrol station forecourts the length and breadth of the country has taken the artistry out of floristry. It is time to return to our roots and champion local florists, and local flowers again.
Today we will discuss the benefits of having fresh flowers delivered by artisanal florists in the UK.
Flowers for all occasions
There is nothing quite like the delight on the recipients face when they receive a bouquet of fresh, hand tied flowers. Even if we don’t get a chance to see that look when we order flowers online, although in these modern times we might be lucky enough to get a video message or even tik tok reaction!, we can rest assured that we have made someone’s day.
From celebrations like anniversaries, birthdays, or weddings, to sympathy flowers and respectful funeral arrangements for difficult times, flowers can say much more than our words ever can. When you send flowers it is vital to know the flowers will arrive in perfect condition.
The time has come to ditch machine cut and machine tied flower bouquets. Let’s support local businesses and fresh, hand tied flowers.
