There are literally thousands of mind-blowing flower accounts out there. We could spend all day scrolling. And sometimes do. So to help you get ready for British Flowers Week, we’ve handpicked some of our favourite accounts run by wholesalers, growers and florists who love British flowers and foliage. There are so many more we want to feature, this list could go on and on and on and on. If we’ve missed off one of your favourites, let us know and we’ll add them to the list.
