What is British Flowers Week?
from Monday 18 June to Sunday 24 June 2018.
week‐long celebration of the wealth and variety of the Best of British cut flowers and foliage, championed by New Covent
Garden Flower Market. British Flowers Week is the annual nationwide celebration of British cut flower growers and the
skilled independent florists they supply. The campaign unites the British cut flower industry behind the call for consumers
to buy - and value - locally-grown, seasonal British flowers and foliages. It also brings retail and event florists, flower
schools, growers and wholesalers together to showcase the best of British flowers, foliages and floristry.

Examples of Attractive Window Displays FREE
We also sponsored
Helen Goodwin, the Visual Merchandising whiz from the BFA Vision conference to design and create a couple of example window
displays for British Flowers Week. We made videos of what Helen created and how she went about it which you can see
below the photographs here.

Window Display Videos
The first video shows Helen at Floral Elegance in Acomb, York talking about the principles of how to
create a great display. The second video is a speeded up, timelapse video of her building the display at Wards in York.
Helen was building the display during a working day there is quite a lot of background noise from customers in the
second half of the first video - sorry!
