Each day more flowers are coming into bud on our sustainable English flower farm. The florists in our Hampshire farm workshop and London flower shop receive deliveries of freshly picked seasonal stems straight from the farm on a daily basis: they liken the feeling to that of a child walking into a sweet shop – eyes wide, heart pounding and spoilt for choice. Being a florist is reported to be one of the happiest professions because of the joy flowers elicit. Certainly our whole team gathers round when the farm truck arrives to see what’s been picked and to drink in the fresh heady scents.

To celebrate the launch of our new English bouquets we asked our team to pick their favourite arrangements from the collection.

Becky, florist at our farm workshop

“I always find it so hard to pick a favourite but each time I make one of our Best of British bouquets the team comments on how bright and beautiful it looks. Everything about it is so vibrant and uplifting – it’s a bunch of happiness in terms of both colours and scent.”

Nancy, florist at our London flower shop

“I love the unusual colour palette of our English Rainbow Bouquet – the mix of wild and meadow flowers with English roses really showcases the variety of what we grow. In the London flower shop we want to bring the wild and natural beauty of the farm to life in the bouquets we create – and the English Rainbow Bouquet does just that with its looser style and unusual mix.”

Rosebie, founder and flower farmer

“For me it has to be our Florist’s Choice bouquet as you are guaranteed to receive the very best of what’s been freshly picked on the farm and is looking its finest.”

Jilly, trade sales

“I’m always drawn to neutral soft colours, so I would choose Simply Margaret Merril. While working here I’ve really enjoyed getting to know all the different characteristics and scents of our roses – it has changed my taste and opened up my appreciation and understanding of the intricate beauty of each stem we grow. Margaret Merril really has the most beautiful scent and I love the way it opens to such an elegant shape, revealing its beautiful centre.”

Jane, managing director

“Our Best of British bouquet is spectacular this year. It really showcases the best of what we grow and what is looking breathtaking right now on the farm.”

Rob, farm manager

“My favourite bouquet is the Florist’s Choice as it’s so seasonal and represents a moment in time in the English summer.”
