British Flowers Week 2020 begins
This year's British Flowers Week runs from 15 to 21 June and celebrates British-grown flowers
This year's British Flowers Week kicks off today in its eighth consecutive year.
The initiative, which is spearheaded by New Covent Garden Market aims to celebrate the UK flower industry including British growers, wholesalers, local florists and gardeners.
Part of this week's activities include asking the public to join in the celebration by decorating their windows, front porch or gate with a British flower stem, bouquet or even a painting or drawing and share them using the hashtag #BritishFlowersWeek.
Several prominent florists, including Simon Lycett and Simon Connolly are supporting the week, while the Garden Museum is holding virtual workshops and online activities as part of the week.
Don't miss our exclusive tour around a British flower farmer's plot. Justine Scouller of Far Hill Flowers explains a little about her day, the farm and the flowers she uses for displays, events and more.
