British Flowers Week competition launched at the Garden Museum
Design created by florist Carly Rogers for British Flowers Week 2017, photographed by Julian Winslow.
The Garden Museum is a restored historic environment which explores and celebrates British gardens and gardening through its collection, temporary exhibitions, events and garden. Each installation will be an artistic response to the surroundings, showcasing the unique seasonal quality of British flowers, plants and foliage, and will be on display to the public throughout British Flowers Week.
The week-long event is set to raise awareness of the enviable array of flowers and foliage the UK is home to, as well as the phenomenal talent of the country’s floral industry.

Helen Evans, a spokesperson for New Covent Garden Market, said: “British Flowers Week is a fantastic platform for florists to showcase their creativity, skill and passion for working with the best locally grown flowers and foliage. The Garden Museum is the perfect new venue to celebrate this, and we can’t wait to see the installations that our talented floral designers will come up with.”
A judging panel of industry experts will select the six installations and, when in place, a winning design will be chosen by a special guest judge. The deadline for applications is midnight on 2 May 2018. The six shortlisted florists will be announced on Friday 18 May and the final winner on Tuesday 19 June.
