Crop Report - 17th September 2021

Crop Report

 mixed irish foliage

Are we early for Christmas and late for Autumn? It seems time is running so swiftly! Evolution is happening at pace - I wouldn't even be surprised if a Pterodactyl flew over after hearing that Woolly Mammoths are being genetically engineered?!?

This week is National Recycling Week September 20, 2021 - September 26, 2021

Recycle Week encourages people to recycle more through advertising campaigns and partnerships with big companies and well-known brands. In 2021, Recycle Week will run from 20th to 26th September.

The theme for this year is 'Step It Up this Recycle Week'.This is an ideal time for you to tell your customers what you are doing to lessen your impact on the environment and recycle more. We will be telling you more about our recycling journey too!

Foliages

  • YAY! NEW!! season of Eucalyptus - order with caution as still some tender leaf tips. On arrival looks fabulous and welcomed back for Autumn wreaths and bouquet work. It is still Irish, we have changed Importer. 

  • Gunni / Baby Blue and Perriniana with a new Mixed box offer and additional Norfolk grown mixed bunches will be added at the beginning of the week.

Christmas Pre-Orders

  • Pre-orders on Christmas wreaths / boxes / foliages are set up under the banner of Christmas so you can benefit from discounted prices when you purchase in advance. Please note the cost will increase once the pre-order has closed.

Wreath Boxes

  • Pre-ordering has been extended until the end of September and boxes will arrive towards the middle to the end of October. We have managed to secure the same price as last year and if you are looking to have 100 or more or collect from Pinchbeck we can offer an additional saving if you order before the end of September. Phone to discuss. 

Noble Pine

  • The Noble pine from Scotland and readymade wreaths have also been added to pre-orders. Please ensure when you pre-order you do this on a separate order and not mixed in with this weeks flower order. The Pine will be arriving in early November - details are on the product pages.
