Crop Report - 4th November 2022

Crop Report

Autumn Abundance! 

What a whirl October was - lovely to meet up with our flower friends at GFG Event and collaborate with Chrysal for The Fleurex BFA exhibition and we've had fun promoting British Blooms at NAFAS demonstrations too. Fortunately the mild weather brought on lots of products for us to use! Clocks changed and November brings chilly, damp days with slow cooker comfort food and double thermals!

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!!

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' 

  • Paperwhites and Insidgen Narcissi - reckon the mild weather will shorten this season! Don't bank on Paperwhites for Xmas unless it gets cold!
  • NEW SEASON Chrysanthemum - Outdoor finished and indoor supply coming  3 growers with great colour mixes and the breaks are really long so brilliant to use for posies and arrangements as well as bouquets - check our Box offers!
  • NEW SEASON Pittosporum/Bottlebrush - good supply from Cornwall 
  • NEW SEASON Alstromeria - Good supply Cornish 
  • NEW SEASON DRIED - Going fast - request if you need something not on the shop
  • Rosehips - in and out! Limited. 
  • Snowberries - waiting for the next batch of dark pink 

  • 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 as well as outdoor.

  • Eryngium Blue Lagoon good supply

  • Lilies Longi Pink and white only.

  • Gypsophila - depends on weather!!
