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.
