Chrysanthemum crazy 😍 SUCH a good flower and keeps forever in the house. Contact us for yours!
We're saying goodbye to the dahlias after the frosts finally reached London this week 😢The list of varieties we want to grow next year is already out of control 🥺 Particularly after @swancottageflowers shared their best varieties in their dahlia Hall of Fame with us. We're both members of the @flowersfromthefarm network of growers and florists committed to using #grownnotflown flowers with a sustainable approach. Having the opportunity to exchange knowledge, ideas and experience has been invaluable to us on our adventure into flower farming so far. We're pretty chuffed therefore to have been nominated for best new member award by the network. The #britishflowers Oscars if you like 💃🏆we won't find out til February who the winner is but after a long hot year of toiling, watering and digging it feels great! Good luck to all our fellow nominees!
November 🍂 All #britishflowers grown by us at Wolves Lane
Excited to announce we'll be running a natural wreath workshop with our friends @hotmilkcafe, Bounds Green on 4 December from 6.30pm 🙌 There'll be baskets and jars full of dried seedheads, rose hips and greenery we've been squirrelling away all year, delicious mulled things and seasonal snacks and we'll take you through how to create a festive wreath for your home. All materials are biodegradable or reusable and absolutely no experience is necessary! Drop us an email to book, £50 per person 🌲🍂
This bouquet of dahlias, chrysanthemums, cinnamon basil, raspberry fruits in bud, cornflower, myrtle, olive and the very last of the nigella will be walking its way down the aisle in Oxfordshire today. All organically grown, cut and arranged by us. Get in touch if you'd like to find out about seasonal #britishflowers for your wedding. Now taking bookings for 2019 📅
W E N E E D YOU!! WLFC are lucky enough to be building our micro flower farm HERE in this urban oasis in Wood Green, North London. We share the site with an amazing community of growers, and a palm house (complete with waterfall and terrapins), that the site is currently fundraising to save. We want to install solar panels to heat it with sustainable, green energy and return it to it's former status as a community hub and educational resource. Wolves Lane isn't Instagram ready. It's a bit scruffy and tumbledown, foxes let themselves in for a wander across our seedlings and it's either sweltering or arctic inside. But it's a one off. Its potential, harnessed by the amazing people who are working to slowly restore it to it's former glory is huge. Please please donate to keep this unique space open and thriving. Even a couple of quid could help get to the target, particularly since @mayorofldn donated £7,500 yesterday to the cause 🤗 Link in our biog 👆
#tbt to excellent couple Alex & Dave celebrating after their ceremony last month with a bridal bouquet full of the season’s best and confetti everywhere 💖 There’s a common misconception about #britishflowers that they won’t last as long as their imported counterparts but Alex told us that her flower crown survived the entire day and party until 2:30am 👏🏻👏🏻 Excellent effort from those London grown petals 💃🏻 Thanks for the 📷 @jonnyhinesphoto
