The best of British
Celebrate all that’s best about British flowers with our special offers marking British Flowers Week
We all know it and now we’re shouting about it.
British flowers are fantastic – from stunning sweet peas to cracking cornflowers, perfect peonies to beautiful bluebells.
And here at Tudor Rose Florist in Hatter Street, Bury St Edmunds, we’re really getting behind the fifth annual British Flowers Week, which is being held from Monday (June 19th), to raise the profile of great
British flowers and floristry.
To mark the event, which is supported by the British Florist Association, and promote the current trend in British floristry for seasonality, fragrance and more natural designs, we’re offering free delivery in Bury and to villages up to five miles away for any order of our stock of British-grown flowers over £25.00.
We’ll have buckets of wonderful sweet peas – grown by our fantastic suppliers on the Suffolk/Essex border. The smell of these beautiful multicoloured sweet peas (always and only “peas” to our grower Paul) is just amazing – even in their boxes the van is swiftly filled with a glorious perfume and when the flowers are released from their confines in the shop, the scent is quite breathtaking.
Our special offer on the sweet peas will be £3.50 a bunch – not much more than a cup of coffee but oh how much better! Fancy, a kick better for you than caffeine that lasts for days not minutes. A jug full? £10.00 for four bunches.
Another scented favourite will be glorious English stocks grown by Lambs Flowers Ltd of Lincolnshire. We’ll have pastel and jewell colours in stock – the Lincolnshire stocks have lovely strong stems, last well and retain their delicious spicy aroma.
Peonies will also abound – it is the height of the English peony growing season and a true favourite at Tudor Rose, both with customers and florists alike. They have a beauty and charm all their own, perhaps accentuated by their short summer season.
So, there will be reds (sweet peas), whites (sweet peas and stocks) and yes we’ll have the blue too in the shape of classic summer cornflowers – a red, white and blue fanfare of flowers to celebrate British Flowers Week. #Britishflowerweek
And I’m sure we’ll find some bunting to add to the patriotic flavour of the event and make a real spectacle of our sensational home-grown summer flowers.
