Plantpassion flowers will be at the Coronation

We are thrilled and honoured to share the news that beautiful, scented, spring flowers from our Plantpassion field at Hill top farm in East Clandon will be part of Flowers from the Farm’s gift to Their Majesties King Charles III and Queen Camilla on their Coronation. 

Alongside seasonal flowers and foliage from fellow growers in all four nations of the  UK, our blooms will decorate the Quire and the Grave of the Unknown Warrior of Westminster Abbey during Saturday’s Coronation Ceremony. 

We've sent Hellebores, Tulips, Wallflowers and Bleeding heart. Plus foliages of Spirea, Physocarpus, and Rosemary

Flowers from the Farm has been working closely with floral designer and sustainable floristry advocate Shane Connolly to bring the beauty, joy and variety of local, seasonal flowers to the heart of this historic occasion. 

We are so proud to be members of Flowers from the Farm, the membership association that champions nearly 1000 independent, artisan growers of local, seasonal cut flowers right across the UK.

The flowers have been grown in harmony with the natural seasons, outdoors and in polytunnels on flower fields, allotments, cutting gardens and walled gardens. Since every plot has its unique growing and weather conditions, the displays in Westminster Abbey of more than 4500 stems will reveal a unique floral tapestry of springtime in the UK.

Flowers from the Farm members teamed up to relay buckets of fresh flowers to local hubs, regional hubs and then onto the main hub in South Gloucestershire, where they were sorted and prepared for Shane Connolly to arrange at Westminster Abbey.

The Coronation marks a landmark moment for the global flower farming movement. We've been growing and only using British flowers here for 10 years, but It demonstrates that local, seasonal flowers deserve to be seen at state occasions just as much as they do in bridal bouquets, funeral tributes or vases in the home.
