CROP REPORT - 28th August 2022

Crop Report


I've been there and back and definitely know how far it is!! Flowered up some rockin' weddings with the lovely JacquiO Florals :) on my working holiday - and Yes it was a LOT of Gypsophila! 

Crops have had a good drenching of rain - flash floods - diggers have been in the dykes and the fields are waterlogged .... from one extreme to another and it rained all day today too - forecast is for sunny days next week so we are expecting an abundance of product!!

Pink & White Snowberries are back online and Hypericum in all colours.

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. I adore Autumn - the berries, the scent of hops and gourds will be here soon too.

Matricaria adds mini button-like texture to bouquets and sunflowers continue. The second flush of Eryngium Blue Lagoon is coming in and some country-style Astrantia

FRESH BRITISH HOPS will be in next week and delivery outload scheduled for Friday.  There's plenty more lovely Carthamus and our mixed dried boxes are back in stock with an assortment of products including dried statice, Gyp, peonies and Helichrysum. 

Hypericum - Green, White  Red and Coral pink :)

Carthamus - get ready to dry this lovely orange thistles for your Autumn decorations BOX deal has been added for those of you keen to start drying for Autumn wreaths etc

Gladioli - back in stock 

Sunflowers continue  

Lilies ... LA, Longi in Pink and White - Orientals also Pink or White and Rose lilies in Pink and white too.

New stock of jute string and Rainbow Raffia plus more of those handy nailbrushes from Nutscene 

There's plenty of Heavenly cards in stock so don't forget to browse the sundries section!

If you are looking for wedding flowers please let me know the week before so we can reserve your stock in advance. 

Growers choice Mixed boxes....there's a few crops starting and stopping as we are now into many new field crops - they are very weather dependant! This enables growers to pitch up with whatever looks good! 
  • Hydrangea - growers choice or straight colours - better to book a week ahead at the moment to secure wedding volumes as still not oodles. White is coming through slowly and advisable to pre-order. Pinks, Lilacs and whites available :) 
  • Sedum - pink 
  • Eryngium - second flush of Blue Lagoon 
  • Iris - Blue plenty.
  • Alstro - Norfolk - Limited 
  • Foliages we have added Salal to import 

Foliage is always a challenge this time of year!! Eucalyptus getting ready to be back - pre-orders only this week.

COMING SOON from the fields and glasshouses...

Brassica - alternative varieties - do remember the colours show after a frost so quite green at the moment. Chrysanthemum sprays. 

Gourd's and Pumpkins and some Aster Serenade 

YOU WILL NOT FIND FRESHER or with less Flower miles travelled or lower carbon footprint :)

Quote of the Week: 

To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.
