Nobody looks forward to Monday, but next week I’m making an exception. This coming Monday the 16th of June is the start of British Flower Week and it all kicks off at the New Covent Garden Flower Market from 4am until 10am for a week long celebration of British cut flowers and foliage. Here at By Bethany we are slowly building our networks within the British floral supply industry and are hoping to at some point in the future be a business that only uses British seasonal produce. This journey is proving challenging but I’m very much looking forward to having strawberries with cream and champers at 6 in the morning on Monday, meeting some fabulous suppliers, as well as fellow florists who share my drive to revive the floral supply industry in this country (not a strange scenario at all).
Events will be happening all week, so if you want to keep up to date with it all use hashtag #BritishFlowerWeek to do so.
