British Flowers Week 2014

Blue and white love-in-a-mistI forgot to mention in yesterday’s post that today is the start of British Flowers Week 2014, which continues through to Friday. Click on the link to see what it’s all about.

Wellywoman did this good post all about it earlier today, and included a chance to win a copy of her excellent book The Cut Flower Patch.

For lots of great flower photos have a look at Kate Spicer Photography’s post A Week in the Life of a British Flower Grower.

If you get the opportunity then please support this event, even if you only buy a bunch of British Flowers.

    Alas, I will not be able to get my hands on any British flowers… except for the seeds that came from a certain British allotment!

      Nikki as I’m sure you realise it’s all about buying locally grown flowers rather than imported ones. Of course home grown ones are even better aren’t they. xx

    I’m a big fan of British flowers, all things British in fact. It really annoys me when I can’t find something from this country. Happens too often I’m afraid.
