Today we launch our #flowersforthefuture campaign to encourage scottish florists to buy from local flower growers.
britain may be passionate about the seasonality and the locality of its food but when it comes to flowers, the majority don’t bat an eyelid. despite the emphasis of #grownnotflown earlier in the year, a staggering 70% of cut flowers are still being imported from the netherlands.
as flowers are not ingested, overseas producers are not regulated to the same extent, impacting heavily on pollution, habitat loss and declining numbers of wildlife. read about what inspired us to start the campaign and how to get involved. link in bio.
#flowersforthefuture aims to connect scottish growers and buyers to benefit the future of the industry and the ecosystem. so how do you get involved? join our flowers for the future facebook group and start changing perceptions. 🌸🌷🌺🌿🙏
We’re about to launch a very exciting campaign to promote locally grown scottish cut flowers. august and september are colourful months in the walled garden, not least because our four huge cut flower beds are in full bloom. we grow over 50 varieties of cut flower from seed and this year we’ve added in a selection of roses and herbaceous perennials. stay tuned for more details but for now, here’s just one of our cut flower beds. link in bio for details of the varieties we have available just now for florists. #grownnotflown#flowersfromthefarm#flowersforthefuture#scottishflowers#flowerstagram#britishflowers
