Flowers from the Farm celebrate their debut at Hampton Court

British flower growers from all over the country are coming together to exhibit locally grown, seasonal cut flowers at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show. The exhibit will be located in the Rose and Floristry Marquee, and through the theme ‘Circus’ will showcase an exciting array of British-grown flowers. The design comes from the creative team of florists at Martin and the Magpie, and features a stunning British willow sculpture by artist Jo Hammond.

The exhibitors have come together through the national organisation for British cut-flower growers which is called Flowersfrom the Farm. This is a wonderful forum for information regarding British cut flowers, bringing artisan and commercial growers together from across the UK. The British cut-flower industry is going through a resurgence as more and more consumers realise the environmental costs of imported flowers. With an emphasis on sustainability and seasonality, British-grown blooms are becoming more popular as a green alternative.

Come and see the best of British flowers at Stand RF3 in the Rose and Floristry Marquee at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show, 8th-13th July 2014.

For further information about British flowers, go to and find your local growers.
