Why We Are Different.
Designed to reflect real lives.
In our view, many traditional funeral flower arrangements just don't reflect our loved ones, and their real lives. Most flowers for funerals are just too formal, too regimented, and often just too white. Our flowers are a tiny bit wild, they're natural, green, and they're gorgeous. Handpicked and prepared in our floristry, they are made to celebrate and remember real lives, and real loves.
Direct from the farm.British flower farms also help biodiversity. The fields of flowers have already provided food and habitat to a huge variety of butterflies, bugs, and bees as they grow. The Great British Florist is based at Wiggly Wigglers on Lower Blakemere Farm, Blakemere, Herefordshire, and is part of The Duchy Estate. The company is a small family business run by Heather and San, along with a professional team available to help in anyway they can, and by buying direct we can deliver real value for money. The average flower costs for a funeral are over £300, with us prices start at £65 for a small sheaf and go up to £99 for a large casket sheaf.
Variety and choice
There is always plenty of choice - whilst you can't have roses in winter.... we do have a year round supply of Beautiful Blooms mostly sourced from flower farms throughout the UK.
We fully understand how difficult it can be when organising funeral flowers. You can leave the whole thing to us, or of course you can choose a theme to pay a personal tribute to your loved one. Perhaps they loved wildflowers, or nature, or farming. Maybe you want pastel shades, or berries or a winter theme... Whatever you decide we will make sure the flowers are a beautiful and fitting tribute, delivered with the very best service.
If your order for funeral flowers is for a service on a Monday or Tuesday, please ensure that you order the flowers to be despatched the previous Thursday for a Friday delivery, and that you - or the funeral director are able to take full responsibility for the flowers once they arrive.
They will be sent in bud, and so they will last until the day as long as the care instructions are followed. They will need fresh water and to be kept in a cool place. NB: Unless the above is an option, we cannot supply your flowers, and your order will not be accepted for processing if it is placed online. These conditions of sale are to ensure that flowers are not in transit over the weekend, - and are delivered in perfect condition, and in good time.
