Funeral Flowers in Covid-19

Funeral Flowers in Covid-19

Who would have thought that I would be writing this piece about the challenges for funeral flowers in a pandemic… 

However in just a few short weeks we all know how difficult things have become for organising funerals during the CoronaVirus crisis and funeral flowers are no different – so here goes… 

High Street Florists

At this time when High Street Florists have shut their shops, it is still worth contacting them if you are looking for fresh funeral flowers as many are working with social distancing inside and yet more are working from home. The supply chain with flowers has had huge problems over the past few weeks but there are some flowers coming from Holland now, and of course, nearly all our fresh flowers are sourced from British Farmers so this supply has been really good for Spring Flowers. (We are looking forward to Lily of the Valley, Sweet William and Pinks in the next week or two… )

Simplifying Funeral Flowers

However, we’ve taken a look at how we operate here and we don’t send fresh flowers via DPD delivery service as the complications at the moment mean that if something goes wrong or is delayed with a funeral tribute it could be really distressing for all concerned. We do very local hand deliveries for simple fresh funeral sheafs between us and Hereford City but that’s about it.

Long-Lasting Fully Compostable Funeral Tributes

We know how important a funeral tribute is, - and so have been thinking of ways to be able to put together something really beautiful and at the same time, a tribute that will last and is extremely simple to send and receive.

Dried Flowers

To this end, we have designed a dried flower funeral sheaf. No two are ever the same but each one is made up of all sorts of beautiful, natural, dried flowers hand-tied in our farm floristry. You can, of course, write your tribute which we can put in with the flowers, and you can have it sent to your home address or the funeral directors’ (you will need to check with them first of course) and even better it can be despatched several days before the funeral so that you (and we) know it’s arrived in good time. As the flowers are dried they will last for weeks but every part of this arrangement is natural and is plastic-free and so it will compost naturally over time without any issue.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for the lovely bouquet of flowers that you sent to my daughter today. She's been shielding since February so these made her day. She was delighted that there were no lilies in the flowers as she suffers with hayfever. Thank you - Helen P

Just to say a lovely thank you for the beautiful arrangement of flowers for the funeral sheaf I ordered for my fathers funeral. He was 91 and always interested in the environment and wildflowers. The arrangement was just perfect. Many thanks once again - Magda B

My family arranged for you to deliver flowers for my birthday last Monday and I have to say that they are the best flowers I have ever received! After a week they are still looking amazing and are likely to do so for several days yet. Thank you very much! - Mary B
