UK growers prepare for British Flower Week

Florists and flower growers across the Westcountry are taking part in a national campaign to get people thinking about where they buy their flowers. From setting up stalls in town centres to surprising strangers with “lonely bouquets”, this sector of the flower industry is doing its bit to mark British Flower Week. The aim is to draw attention to the large number of flowers imported from overseas and to encourage consumers to support their local flower growers. At present 90 percent of cut flowers sold in UK are imported, part of an industry believed to be worth £2.2 billion.
