CROP REPORT - 4th October 2022

Crop Report

Welcome October... IT IS AUTUMN!!

It's most definitely is Autumn and this weekend it all went bonkers for our fresh moss - getting ahead for Christmas has already started but lets PLEASE enjoy Autumn! It's good for the mind and body to adjust into the season and not race ahead skipping a season! We have such a lovely selection of products at the moment to add a pop of colour to your pumpkins. Loads of gourds and the Cinderella pumpkins too. 

Looking forward to see you at the Good Florist Event on 8/9th October - It's open to non-members as well as members and there's a fabbo line up of speakers and workshop sessions to get us in right mindset to be ready and resilient for recession!

We will also be at FLEUREX too on 15th/16th October. We have buddied up with Chrysal for this event and are keen to show you how we use Chrysal products to reduce waste and save water with our planet friendly blooms. We are in the Business drop in Session too from 2-3pm on the Sunday and it would be great meet you there! 

Moss is fresh and green and ready for your Autumn Wreath workshops :) Pumpkins parties next!

Christmas foliage pre-order is up and we 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'
