Crop Report

JUBILEE WEEK!

This week has been about the Lincolnshire Business Excellence Awards as we were in the Finals for the Environmental and Sustainable Business of the Year for 2022! More about that on another blog...this weeks flowers are detailed below for a VERY short delivery window! 

We will be taking a little break to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee and will start deliveries again on 7th June. These orders should be placed as normal by Saturday 4th latest 10pm 

Have a great celebration and see below ideas for your British flower combinations for Jubilee bouquets - please if you need extra British flower tags simply add it onto a note in your order and we will pop in the box :)

Have a great week :)

NEW: Scented Pinks - Good selection of colours lots of lovely regal purples, pinks and few whites. Box offer has been added to the shop or available in Bundles of 10 bunches.

NEW: Gypsophila - slow start as cool weather again at nights ... few for this week

For the Blue Theme in your Red white and Blue bouquets ...Cornflowers, field grown Delphinium white and blue

NOTE: VERY SHORT WEEK ONLY TUESDAY & WEDNESDAY delivery days 

Get your red white and blue bouquets out there !! 

Jubilee Recipe goes like this .... select a focal, filler and secondary flower from the list below, each colour way - blend together, create bouquets and post on socials. Don't forget to add on your British Flower tags to label vases and to attach to bouquets - this way you can highlight the flower story, provenance or simply the percentage British in the bouquet!!

PEONY UPDATE:

Corals which include Pink Hawaiian Sunset, Coral Sunset and Coral Charm are RUNNING LOW

Boxes of 100 stems available at special price! All of our Peonies are from growers within the 40 mile radius of Evolve - the majority are within 10 miles and even as close as next door!! YOU WILL NOT FIND FRESHER or with less Flower miles travelled or lower carbon footprint :)

Foliages .... always a challenge this time of year!! Eucalyptus needs to be cut back April/May to ensure good growth ready for September.
