About British Flowers Week

Started by New Covent Garden Market in 2013, British Flowers Week is a week-long celebration of the wealth and variety of the best of British cut flowers and foliage. It aims to showcase great British flowers through great British floristry, raise awareness of which British flowers are in season and encourage the public to buy more British flowers.

British flowers and foliage are enjoying a long-awaited resurgence in popularity. Buyers are increasingly demanding more locally grown produce to celebrate the seasons and support British growers. Often scented, British flowers have a natural charm, beauty and just-picked freshness that make them the florist’s favourite.
