Our flowers come from farms in Kenya, Europe and other countries*.
Wondering ‘why Kenya’?
Yes, it may not be right on our doorstep. But the climate conditions and altitude there are perfect for growing flowers all-year round. This means we use much less energy heating greenhouses. And means we produce six times less CO2 than hothouses, (even with the air miles), which use a full range of chemicals, heating and sunlight-replacing lamps to grow flowers**. On top of that, it also creates employment opportunities with fair working conditions in a developing country.
If you need any more help, just drop us a line and our wonderful Customer Delight team will be in touch soon.
