NEWS!! A couple of weeks ago it was announced that new Brexit border controls will result in British consumers and businesses facing increased costs and possible delays/shortages in fresh flowers imported from the European Union.One flower business owner calculated that as a result of these new regulations, his shipping costs alone will increase by 17%, and the predicted knock-on to consumers will be between 20% and 50%.The price of cut flowers had already skyrocketed thanks to inflation and higher labour costs, so this is yet another blow to an already struggling industry.We predict that these challenges will lead to a blossoming future (pun very much intended) for the faux flower industry, as more and more individuals and businesses come to view it as a cost-effective and sustainable solution. #silkflowers #switchtosilk ...

NEWS!! A couple of weeks ago it was announced that new Brexit border controls will result in British consumers and businesses facing increased costs and possible delays/shortages in fresh flowers imported from the European Union.
One flower business owner calculated that as a result of these new regulations, his shipping costs alone will increase by 17%, and the predicted knock-on to consumers will be between 20% and 50%.

The price of cut flowers had already skyrocketed thanks to inflation and higher labour costs, so this is yet another blow to an already struggling industry.

We predict that these challenges will lead to a blossoming future (pun very much intended) for the faux flower industry, as more and more individuals and businesses come to view it as a cost-effective and sustainable solution.

TODAY IS CHINESE NEW YEAR!Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival, is the most important traditional festival in Chinese culture. It’s a time for family reunions, honouring ancestors, and welcoming good luck and prosperity for the coming year. Each year in the Chinese zodiac cycle is associated with an animal, and 2024 is the Year of the Dragon, a symbol of strength, courage, and good fortune.Decorating homes and public spaces with traditional Chinese New Year decorations is a common practice. Red is the predominant colour, as it symbolizes happiness, good luck, and prosperity. Flowers, particularly plum blossoms, orchids, and peonies, are popular choices for decorating during this festive season. These flowers hold special significance:1. Plum Blossoms: Symbolize resilience and perseverance, as they bloom even in the harshest of winter conditions.2. Orchids: Represent refinement, beauty, and luxury, making them perfect for adding a touch of elegance to your decorations.3. Peonies: Signify wealth, honour, and good fortune, making them a favourite for Chinese New Year celebrations.Wishing you a prosperous and joyful Year of the Dragon!#chinesenewyear #yearofthedragon ...

THE THORNY TRUTH: HOW VALENTINE’S DAY ROSES CAN Harm Our EnvironmentAs we approach Valentine’s Day, a day dedicated to love and affection, it’s essential to shed light on a not-so-rosy side of this celebration – the environmental impact of rose production.The Rose Industry’s Thorny Footprint:1. Chemical Overload: Most commercially grown roses are treated with pesticides, herbicides, and synthetic fertilizers. These chemicals not only harm the environment but also impact the health of workers in the flower industry.2. Water Woes: Roses are water-intensive crops. In regions where they’re cultivated, excessive water usage can strain local water resources, leading to water scarcity issues.3. Air Miles: Many Valentine’s roses are imported from distant countries. The transportation of these flowers by air generates significant greenhouse gas emissions, contributing to climate change.4. Land Conversion: To meet the demand for roses, natural habitats are often converted into rose farms, leading to deforestation and the loss of biodiversity.5. Single-Use Culture: Most cut roses are discarded shortly after Valentine’s Day, adding to the problem of single-use culture and excess waste in landfills.Blooming Solutions:1. Choose Sustainable Sources: Look for eco-certified or locally grown roses. Supporting sustainable practices can help mitigate the environmental impact.2. Opt for Alternatives: Consider giving potted plants or even silk flower alternatives as gifts.3. Spread Awareness: Share this message with your loved ones to raise awareness about the environmental implications of rose production.Let’s redefine how we express our love on Valentine’s Day. A more sustainable approach can make our expressions of love not only heartfelt but also eco-friendly.#ValentinesDay #EcoFriendlyLove #SpreadAwareness #greenvalentine ... See MoreSee Less

GOODBYE JANUARY, HELLO FEBRUARY!Is it just me or did January feel even longer than usual this year?!I like it when we move into February as it marks the beginning of a floral transformation. While the landscape may still appear quite bare, there are subtle hints of life stirring beneath the surface. Here are three flowers and floral meanings associated with February:• Snowdrops (Galanthus): Often the first to appear, these delicate white flowers symbolize hope and the purity of new beginnings. They push through the snow and frost, reminding us that even in the coldest of times, beauty can emerge.• Crocuses: With their vibrant purple, yellow, and white petals, crocuses bring a burst of colour to gardens and parks. They are a symbol of youthfulness and cheerfulness.• Daffodils (Narcissus): Although they fully bloom a bit later in March, daffodil bulbs can start sprouting leaves in February. These sunny yellow flowers represent rebirth and the arrival of warmer days. #flowerfacts #springiscoming #silkflowers ... See MoreSee Less
