This bunch of organic British summertime flowers are all grown and hand-harvested by the team at Organic Blooms and Vicky at Clover Nursery just outside Bristol. Their combinations of scented narcissi and ranunculus, wallflowers and glossy foliage epitomise this early springtime. This is a truly seasonal box of flowers that will fill a large vase or a few smaller ones. It’s a more conscious way of regularly enjoying and celebrating beautiful, British, seasonal flowers at home.

These are natural organic flowers so each bunch will be unique.
At the moment expect narcissi, ranunculus, sweet williams and foliage

Producer

The idea of sustainable flower and plant delivery is close to our hearts, and we’re delighted to have made ‘floral’ arrangements with the perfect partner. Organic Blooms are no ordinary organic nursery. Based in Gloucestershire, they provide valuable experience and training to local people with varying support needs. Jo Wright, founder of Organic Blooms, started out as a therapeutic horticulturalist. Leading us on a stroll through her little slice of paradise, she had bouquets of enthusiasm for giving back to the community: “For us, staff turnover is as important as profit because the more we grow, the more supported jobs we create at our organic flower farm." Jo’s got her eyes set on making the wider world a better place with her beautiful organic flowers too. “Where a lot of imported plants are sterile, seedless and bred to have closed flowers, we sow native species which help promote bees and other insects with inviting, pollen-filled flowers.” That’ll explain the healthy buzz around the place then!

In the little village of Streamcross in Claverham, just outside of Bristol, you’ll find Vicky Spence growing beautiful blooms and fragrant herbs at Clover Nursery. Passionate about growing sustainably, Vicky has just completed the conversion to organic. So with every bunch, you’re helping to support a new grower as they begin their organic journey.

Storage & prep

If your flowers look a little tired on arrival, don't be alarmed! They just need a little care to get them started and they should last for at least a week, usually longer. Please re-cut the stems on an angle (it's best not to re-cut the narcissi, they don't need it), remove any lower foliage and place in clean water, away from direct sunlight. Keep the water fresh and the vase clean and remove blooms as they fade. Use a vase or container that is tall enough to fully support the stems. Take some time to arrange the flowers one stem at a time, crossing the stems over each other to give them some support. Spread the different shapes and colours evenly around the vase for the best effect.

Where the wild things are
We all love butterflies, birds and bees. Choosing organic is better for the environment. Organic farms encourage wildlife and biodiversity (by not using chemical sprays, and by having more hedgerows, fallow land and wildflowers).
