New stretch target

With the extra money, we could create bespoke gift cards which tell the stories of our growers. 


Flowers are always a good idea! & British flowers are an even better idea! Low carbon footprint, grown not flown, supporting local businesses and eco-packaged.

                         

Why support Box of British Flowers? 

We have great relationships with our local flower growers, both the commercial and the small acreage growers. We love promoting their products and telling their stories far and wide (they are busy growing fabulous flowers!) Many are 2nd, 4th or even 5th generation businesses and we want to help them continue growing their success by enabling you to send British flower gifts anywhere in the country and we hope you will help us spread the message to choose 'grown not flown' British flowers. The vision is that every household knows what flowers are grown here in the UK and how much better they can make you feel! Send a Box of British flowers today!

What makes us unique? 

Our flowers are sourced from within a 40 miles area from our HQ in Spalding, Lincolnshire. We select the very best 'florists choice' of British seasonal flowers and create a beautifully boxed gift, wrapped with eco-friendly papers and an eco-fresh sponge* to keep the flowers in perfect condition and hydrated during travel to the recipient. 

Grown by experienced UK growers and selected by expert florists. Know that you are gifting a low-carbon, authentic and considered gift of flowers that is supporting rural communities and small businesses. You can even have a regular subscription, fresh flowers every month delivered directly to your door. Our flowers last longer in your vase as they haven't had to journey around the world to reach you. Fresh, frequent, fragrant and grown not flown!

Who are we and what's our experience? 

Helen is a qualified florist and tutor and has been 'flowering about' since 1985, working for both growers and retailers. She has a unique knowledge of the floral industry as has worked for rival sectors! for supermarket suppliers and the florist sector! Her passion for the product is very evident and she believes you should do the best with what you have, where you are! Often found demonstrating or 'popping-up' at events such as RHS Chatsworth, British Flowers Week and The Festival of Flowers at Leeds Castle she does her best to promote the British growers and their fabulous products. She has even bought a London Taxi called Tiny2 who helps with promotions! She has a network of fabulous 'volunteers' who love the creative challenges and of course working with beautiful British products!

Why are we crowdfunding Box of British?

We are looking to raise £1450 to test this side hustle and get our Box of British direct to consumers. We will use the money to develop and purchase the eco-packaging and improve the website online store. 

Please help us 'evolve' & support British Growers, pledge on one of our rewards today.
