floristry with low carbon footprint

Locally grown flowers South Yorkshire

Sustainability

  • I use seasonal British Grown flowers & foliage and run my flowering calendar to accommodate this.  During the flower season which is roughly April to September I use locally grown flowers and outside these times I use flowers grown in Cornwall & the Scilly Isles. The use of imported flowers is kept to a bare minimum, thereby reducing carbon footprint, very little air miles.

  • I only order what I need from other growers, or the flowers from my own micro cutting patch are picked to order to avoid waste. The flowers are not refrigerated, saving energy

  • I use sustainable packaging. No plastic - biodegradable & recycled or recyclable paper is used to wrap flowers & paper kraft tape.  Flowers can be delivered in a glass vase should you wish

  •  I use natural hessian, botanically dyed silk ribbons or raffia for bows.  Raffia is a natural fibre. The fibre itself is created from the underside of the frond leaf.  Also known as raffia palm, it is native to Madagascar & possesses large plume-like leaves that are utilised within a variety of industries & is a major part of the south Asian economy

  •  I use dried flowers that have been dried naturally with no preservatives or dyes

  • I use organic methods in my own cutting garden or source from other growers that use organic methods. (no harmful chemicals, pesticides or fungicides)

  • Local growers leave certain flowers for pollinators & the seeds, where possible are saved

  • I create eco-friendly farewell tributes that will completely biodegrade and are suitable for natural burialsI am trialling hemp in my work as an alternative to moss as it is a fast growing cabon negative crop.​​
