Hello Flower Folks!
Thank you to those of you who joined our first Zoom crop report - the video (edited down) has been put into the Facebook closed group for those of you who missed it. Going forward we would like your feedback on what works better for you! At the moment it is looking like Thursday morning video whizz through of products and a LIVE Q&A so you can start to think about gearing up for the following week!
It is more important than ever before that we cultivate our community -we have all had a tough couple of years trying to manage the rollercoaster of flowery life. Please do share your wins, tips and life in general in the Facebook Community - it's a safe place for British flower folks to hang out and theres oodles of knowledge and motivation to be had. Working on our own as we do is hard enough. Get connected with like-minded souls and find a buddy to boost your mental health and inspire you along the way, then life gets easier - If you can't find one a buddy you will just have to make do with me getting excited about all the projects that are on this year! 😂
This week is Blue Monday and Brew Monday and possibly the longest week of the entire calendar! We've had a bit of fun with eco-dye and are offering Unicorn Tulips - throw a dash of Bioglitter Frost on and team with white twigs and theres a talking point for consumers.
Why not do a few 'lonely bouquets' or giveaway competitions too - it will cheer up your local area and get them in the mood for flowers at Valentines day! Make someone happy and for the price of a few Rainbow Tulips its probably the most cost effective marketing you will ever do!
