The idea of sustainable plant and flower 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 flower company. 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!
This year we're really excited to be working with Naomi at Wards Farm Flowers who is also supplying some of our beautiful flower boxes. We're committed to growing a community of organic flower growers and Naomi is a big part of that. Based near Exeter, Naomi runs an organic farm with ducks, a herd of cattle and of course, plenty of beautiful blooms. Naomi and her family rescued the farm from years of abuse by conventional mono-cropping and now it's a haven for wildlife. And when it comes to plant and flower delivery, we're breaking new ground. Every box will arrive in 100% biodegradable and compostable packaging. Even the plastic wrapping is cellulose-based, meaning it’ll go down a treat in your compost bin.
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, 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.
