Summer bouquets, grown in Wood Green
Congratulations!!! @floribundaroseflorists for your beautiful installation and medal at #hamptoncourtflowershow for @flowersfromthefarm championing british flowers and flower growers 💖💖💖 ps thanks for my buttonhole as well! Xxx
We love sending flowers out for people but we feel incredibly privileged to arrange in honour and celebration of somebody’s life - the best part of our job 🌈
Lads, lads, lads 🌱 Nic (far left) raging that he wasn’t in the middle or holding the biggest bunch 🍭 Flowers modelled by members of the wolves lane community that we’re lucky to be part of 💫 ps thanks gill @fieldhouseflowers we made sure to cut some cornflowers 💙
It’s all in the name 🐺 Wolves Lane - where it all started, the site that allows us to grow all these flowers. Open to the public tomorrow at N22 5JD 🌸 We’ve been flattered to receive so many emails recently from other keen flower growers who would like to visit our site. So if you’d like to see what an urban micro flower farm looks like (banish all ideas of a manicured garden we’re only in our second year so it’s really quite disorganised) then come down to wolves lane tomorrow between 11am - 3pm. Plus you can meet all the other amazing veg growers that make the wolves lane community what it is 💫 Brian and I will be there with the ammi majus among other flowers, transplanting more dahlias that aren’t happy growing under cover 😭
Caption competition? It was such a privilege to meet @alantitchmarsh123 and HRH The Duchess of Cornwall last week and chat roses and weeds #thistimelastweek #britishflowersweek
You better not be bad mouthing our newest friend from the cutting garden Carnation. She may have got a bad rep from hanging around the petrol station forecourt but she comes in these gorgeous, rich wine colours and smells sweet, spicy and a little bit racy. #carnationcomeback
Today’s bouquet being walked down the aisle right about now 💖 They asked for colour so we filled it with Arabian nights dahlias, sweet Juliet roses, back to black and Beaujolais bonnets scabious, geums and the first of the season’s verbascum!☀️ All grown by us at Wolves Lane 🐺 🐾
Happy, excited (and a little bit broken) to say we and @f_e_s_t_o_o_n flowers were awarded joint best in show for @marketflowers and @gardenmuseum #britishflowersweek competition. All #foamfree and #britishgrown 💃💃💃 Loved working alongside our fellow finalists who all created amazing installations @floribundaroseflorists @harrysflowersuk @veeverscarter @evolveflowers. Drinking all the wine now and then off to lie in a darkened room 😊😴
@mariannetamsin totally crushing on @brian_and_the_veg 💥We’d never, just the two of us built an installation together before Monday @gardenmuseum for #britishflowersweek so 👏🏻👏🏻 us for still being able to smile at the end of the day in spite of total exhaustion #friendshipgoals #nothairgoals 📷 by @julian_winslow thanks for sharing @marketflowers x
We’re less posh in real life 🙈 - it’s our MUST concentrate it’s pre 7am & live TV voice - but we’re really into #britishflowers 💖 So come and see our installation for #britishflowersweek and that of 5 other florists committed to working with flowers grown in the 🇬🇧 @gardenmuseum if you’re in and around London this week 💥 Thank you #carolkirkwood & @bbcbreakfast
🙏🏻@gardenmuseum & @marketflowers for supporting & promoting #britishflowersweek we’re so grateful for the opportunity and delighted to be working alongside 5 other florists who are committed to using #britishflowers 🌱 💫 We couldn’t have created this installation without @souvenirscenicstudios -helping us make everything structurally sound and water tight 💦 @gillyflorist master grower for all the extra stems! And our lovely neighbours @wolveslane for lending us the geranium plants THANK YOU ALL!
Unable to meet your gaze...excited and frankly bemused to be featured in today's @telegraph talking about the ups and downs of growing flowers in our tiny plot in north London. Bemused as we're paragraphs apart from our growing and floristry gurus @fieldhouseflowers and @shaneconnollyandco 😳 we'll be at The Garden Museum all next week with our installation for British Flowers Week so come and say hi!
The countdown to our installation for #britishflowerweek at @gardenmuseum continues ⏰⏰⏰ the scent from these blousy Wollerton Old Hall roses are smelling particularly delicious today
A busy week ahead for WLFC as we prep for our installation going into the @gardenmuseum this time next week which will be on display from Tuesday 19th - Saturday 23rd. Here's a bouquet in minature to start the week of speedwell, black medick, sorrell, lambs tongue, grasses and daisy all picked from the borders of a carpark yesterday and still going strong today. Our weedy love affair is in full swing 😍

It's #worldenvironmentday today. In 2018 the focus is #beatplasticpollution something that can feel - on a day to day basis - virtually impossible. We strive to be #plasticfree as much as we can or to reuse the existing plastic we have such as with labels or pots. We spied these bees early this morning feasting on the verbascum and were reminded how we only get one planet! Buy a @keepcup, take your sandwich to work, refuse a plastic bag even if the journey home feels like a juggling act! And #buylocal 💪 Tiny acts to reduce, reuse or recycle all matter!
Deliciously scented, Wood Green grown flowers destined for a kitchen table a few miles from our plot 👍
