British Flowers Week is the annual celebration of British flowers, plants and foliage.
Taking place this week (June 10–16), and now in its seventh year, British Flowers Week will shine a spotlight on growers and independent florists and, of course, Britain’s best blooms. The week aims to raise awareness of which British flowers are in season when, and also to encourage the public to buy more British flowers.
In honour of British Flowers Week, The Garden Museum in south London is hosting a gorgeous floral exhibition in partnership with BFW’s founders New Covent Garden Market, the UK’s premier flower supplier.
The exhibition will showcase five of Britain’s top florists, and each of them will create an innovative floral installation following this year’s theme: memories. The five artists are: Carly Rogers of Carly Rogers Flowers (who you might recognise for her work in sketch’s famous toilets), Ruth Davis from All for Love London; Terri Chandler and Katie Smyth from Worm; Graeme Corbett from Bloom & Burn; and Rowan Lewis of Rowan Blossom.
The exhibition starts today (June 11) and is only around until June 16 – so you’d better get your tickets stat. Your ticket will also include entry to the entire Garden Museum, including the ‘Ivon Hitchens: The Painter in the Woods’ exhibition.
