British Flowers Week
UK flower farmers promote locally grown flowers
There are more than 30 flower farms big and small across Devon, Cornwall, Somerset, Dorset and the Isles of Scilly supporting hundreds of jobs in the British cut flower industry, worth £2billion a year.

She said: "Across the Westcountry, there are a growing band of dedicated flower growers bringing back long lost flowers we used to buy like larkspur, cornflowers, love in a Mist, sweet peas, snapdragons, sweet williams or smelling roses that you can sink your nose in to with out fear of inhaling herbicides and fungicides found on some imported varieties.
