We have had a number of requests for British grown cut flowers for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations, so if you are a grower or supplier, our readers are keen to know what is available.
By the time we head into May and early June, the British flower gardens should be brimming with colour and many growers are aware that there will be a huge demand for red, white and blue blooms.
Orders for these patriotic flowers are being placed now and we would like to hear from growers and suppliers who are placing a “Jubilee” emphasis on their plantings and orders.
What is available? What is popular? Has the Jubilee resulted in an increase in business?
Planning a display
If your area, diocese, organisation are planning any flower festivals or Jubilee flower arrangements, please get in touch with us via the comments section at the end of this article.
Lily of the valley
Following the use of Lily of the Valley by the Duchess of Cambridge at her wedding last year, we are also experiencing a high volume of requests for people wanting to source Lily of the Valley this year.
If you are a grower or supplier, especially of the longer stemmed variety, then we would love to hear from you!
