Most of our Galloway-grown flowers have finished by November. I'm grateful to growers further South in the UK for supplying flowers for our to us in the next cold, dark months.
But these lightly-scented beauties are among the exceptions - I cut stems (in bud) into November this year. These were included in bouquets delivered to our regular customers. They may look fragile but they're tough cookies, standing up well outside to that Galloway wind & rain!
We NEVER import flowers from outside the British Isles, all year round. It's not always easy to do but our talented growers make sure there's always something lovely to enjoy. All grown to high ethical, environmental & sustainable standards with minimal carbon footprint, of course.
And buying a UK-grown bouquet can save up to 7.9kg of Carbon compared to an imported bouquet of flowers.
If you would like to join our regular subscription customers, let me know. Delivered locally on Fridays, & British-grown all year round. Minimum subscription is just 3 bouquets.
If somebody you know is looking for gift inspiration this Christmas - maybe it's time to give them a hint...
