The Great British Florist

One of my favourite aspects of Britain are the country gardens. They're romantic and whimsical, dotted with tulips, bluebells, foxgloves, snowdrops and blue forget-me-nots. 

So you can imagine my delight when I received a posy from The Great British Florist. It is an English country garden in a vase. 



Posy of the month* - the flowers change depending on the season and you can join a flower club and receive a bunch every month.


The flowers arrived beautifully packaged, with plenty of water and flower food. I didn't know this but only 10% of flowers sold in the UK are actually grown here and The Great British Florist is committed to selling flowers which are grown on British farms. This also means that there are no air miles so carbon emissions are minimal, flower waste is composted and plastic is recycled. 



I can't tell you enough how beautiful these flowers are. Despite the fact that I was sent them to review, I wouldn't hesitate to order them again. They're perfect as a present or as a beautiful treat to brighten up the home. I have been inspired to go to my local garden centre and buy seeds to start growing my own English country garden. Thank you to Heather, who runs the company.
