As a frequent traveler to London and the south coast of England, I am often inspired by British flowers and European decor. Although Singapore is 6000km away, flower lovers should take note that its British Flower Week.
THIS YEARLY FESTIVITY OF SEASONAL, LOCALLY-GROWN FLOWERS AND FLORA IS MARRYING THE UK CUT FLOWER TRADE AND IGNITING PUBLIC AND MEDIA INTEREST IN WHERE THESE TYPES OF FLOWERS COME FROM.
British Flower Week is shining a limelight on the best of British cut flowers and working with the top notch independent British florists to display just what British flowers are all about!
Right now, British cut flowers are enjoying a renaissance in demand. Just as interest in locally-grown organic food has blossomed, so people are once again appreciating the value of locally-grown, freshly cut flora.
Up until the 1970s, the only flowers you would ever see in the Flower Markets and nurseries came from flower farmers in Britain.
Today, the vast preponderance of flowers in your average mall flower shop will have been developed by large scale commercial growers in China, Holland, South America and Africa and channeled through the Dutch auctions and wholesale market.
British Flowers Week is bringing British cut flowers back!
Singapore has an abundance of flower lovers, in particularly brides looking for the perfect wedding flowers and bouquets. Why note take note of British Flower Week and let us know if anything inspired you.
