When is Mother's Day 2016?

Don't forget your Mum this year - it's a chance to say thank you and show her your appreciation and love.

This year Mothering Sunday is on Sunday March 6th

3 Facts on why we celebrate Mother's Day 
  • Mothering Sunday changes date every year because it is linked to Easter. It is precisely 3 weeks before Easter Sunday and so can take place in March or April. This year is particularly early - 6th March.
  • It was originally a time for people to get back together. People returned to their Mother Church to attend services and it became a tradition for young people in service to return from the big house to return to their homes to see their mums and take a gift (often a nosegay - a small posy of flowers)
  • Traditionally, people fasted during Lent and cut out all sorts of sweets and meats. However, on Mothering Sunday this was lifted and the traditional Simnel Cake was eaten at teatime on this day.  A Simnel cake is a light fruit cake covered with a layer of marzipan and with a layer of marzipan baked into the middle of the cake.

This year we've got our largest (and loveliest) selection of British Flowers you can send you Mum! - We believe that we really do have something for everyone - to suit all budgets and tastes! Thanks to Dewsall Court for letting us take these piccies in their stunning venue!

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
