#grownnotflown Seasonal Arrangements from The Great British Florist - 21st October 2019

All our fresh flower arrangements are over on our sister site The Great British Florist

Our cutting patch supplies many of our blooms here on the farm and we use a network of other British flower farmers which deliver direct into our farm floristry. We design and put together each individual posy from the mix of seasonal scented flowers which are then despatched via courier on a next day delivery service. We despatch Monday – Thursday so deliveries are between Tuesday and Friday to ensure your flowers are always fresh.

If we need to supplement our flower supplies we only use stems that are sourced in near Europe so that none of our flowers are flown in from overseas. We promise that this arrangement will contain as many British Flowers and/or Foliage as possible, often 100%. You will always have our British Grown Stem Count to rely on which is marked on each delivery note and when it’s possible to send 100% UK grown flowers you have our commitment that we will do just that.

I’m finding worms in the Collector Tray or outside the composter. What’s wrong?

The earthworms shouldn’t be crawling into the collecting container on their own, just as they shouldn’t be outside the wormery. If they do, it means they don’t like something inside the container. It could be excess food, so take some away. It could be the lack of air. Check that the moisture level in your wormery isn’t too high. If you're looking to get started with Worm Composting, please Wiggle on over to​ and take a look at our Urbalive Worm Composters.
