Mothers Day Flowers

Mothers Day is one of our busiest weeks, it is very hard work but also extremely rewarding.  It is so nice going out delivering bouquets of flowers, to all those well deserved mums. The looks of surprise and wonderful smiles we receive when we knock on the door are priceless. Being a florist is certainly a career that creates happiness.

Mothering Sunday falls a bit early in our growing season, its 15th March this year. We do have our home-grown foliage, some cheery daffodils and  anemones, but the rest of our flowers are purchased from other British flower growers in the south.

Our bouquets for Mothers Day are truly British, along with our flowers, we use British printed and designed cards, as well as British made kilner jars to display the flowers in.

We hand deliver each bouquet to our local area, we are taking orders up to Thursday evening this week, and delivering on Saturday, and Sunday morning. If you would like to order a bouquet for delivery in West Lancashire please take a look at our website www.theflowerfarmflorist.co.uk If you are looking for British Flowers in other areas, take a look at the Flowers From The Farm Website a great resource for finding your local flower grower.

Happy Mothers Day, to all those wonderful mums, working hard around the country, remember that this Sunday is your day 🙂

New Year, New Business

Over the last few months I have been completely re-organising the business. I have streamlined things to work as efficiently as possible. The Flower Farm as you know it will now be concentrating on just two things – growing flowers and creating beautiful bespoke wedding flowers. I have an updated website, with new branding and logo, (any feedback is much apprecated).

All aspects of floristry work – bouquets, funeral flowers, demonstrations, workshops, etc will now be under a brand new business called The Flower Farm Florist. I have started this new business in partnership with my dear friend, and super florist Alison Matthews (look out for her posts in the coming months). It now means that we can offer a complete local floristry service.

We have a new website, that we hope is simple to use. Our bouquets will still concentrate of championing British products, we will use our own flowers when ever possible. They will be handmade and hand delivered, no courier’s will be used, meaning that the bouquets are delivered with care, and without any excess packaging. Each bouquet will be created as a hand-tied design, it will come in a reusable glass container (British made or recycled) with flower food and  with a British printed and designed, good quality card (Prices start at £18). Our prices will remain the same through out the year and peak periods like Valentines day, Mothers Day and Christmas.

Funeral flowers is an area that we haven’t really concentrated on in the past, due to time commitments, but something that we would love to build on. We are on the look out for local undertakers wanting to work with a florist that produces something different from the norm, someone who loves local produce and traditional English flowers, who wants flowers that are hand-picked and individually arranged to their requirements.

We are also planning to run a series of one day workshops, where you can watch a demonstration, create a design of your own and have a fantastic locally produced lunch. (We are looking for suitable venues to hold these.)
