So GBF…. Just HOW many British Grown Stems of Flowers and Foliage have you sent out in 2017???
What a year! We were really pleased to have had a record breaking year for weddings, delighted to be awarded Highly Commended at The West Midlands Wedding Industry Awards and happy to see our flower sales increase meaning we can plant more and more here at the farm… Good for bees, birds, butterflies and you and me!
We are very pleased to announce that since starting our British Stem count on 20th February that we have actually sent out over 200,000 #grownnotflown stems (the count is at 203418). It has been an incredible year for British stems and we are so proud to be a part of that! We recognise that a few of you were a little worried that we no longer limited ourselves to UK Only grown flowers and foliages but we now hope to put you at ease and to let you know we have sold just as many ALL British Grown arrangements as last year – plus our new pro British arrangements on top of that!
We just want to say a BIG THANK YOU for supporting us – we appreciate it. With your help we have been able to send out more British Stems then we ever have before – something I think we can all be proud of!
Here’s to 2018! We have planted another 200 rose bushes and 60 more eucalyptus trees (with lots more seeds (and lavender plants) to come up in the Spring).

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
