CROP REPORT - 18th November 2022

Crop Report

39 DAYS to CHRISTMAS.... 

Covid doesn't go well with peak planning !! Pleased to report we are almost all back on track! Keep eating your green folks!! 😂 

Eryngium, Chrysanthemums ... & soon there will be Tulips!!

Tulips grown by hydroponic methods are well and truly underway! 

We are privileged to be working with one of the largest 3rd generation family businesses & producers in our area who has invested millions to prepare for the increase in demand for British grown next year and of course working smarter not harder! Looking forward to Tulips, Scented Stocks and Astrantia as well as some new trials. 

Hellebores are being nurtured ... won't be long before January is round and we see some lovely nodding heads for seasonal designs> 

My prediction is that despite the rising costs of living - our customers will search out meaningful planet-friendly floral gifts for their loved ones. Consumer behaviours are changing, they are having to.  Flowers are always a good idea and everyone needs flowers to cheer up the dull days. 

Moss is fresh and green and ready for your wreath workshops and getting ahead... Please do get ahead as we are concerned with Royal Mail strikes this is going to put additional pressure on other couriers...MOSS is lovely at the moment so stores well - please plan ahead!! Video on the product page :) 

Christmas Noble is sold out! up and we are will be offering a special offer box of local Nordmann as well as Scottish Noble Pine and Spruce. Planet friendly pine cones are on the webshop too as is BioGlitter, Spray paint and orange slices. Just go to drop down for 'Christmas' OR use the search box at the top of the page for a 'quick look up'

  • Paperwhites and Insidgen Narcissi - reckon the mild weather will shorten this season! Don't bank on Paperwhites for Xmas unless it gets cold!

  • Brassica returns to the mix - use CVBN in the water to reduce the aroma :) They are green at the moment as colour becomes more intense after frost. Indoor grown is beautifully cleanand white.

  • Eryngium Blue Lagoon good supply...you are romping through it!!
