The Sustainable Florists To Know

If you’re looking to make more conscious buying decisions – particularly when it comes to flowers – we’ve rounded up the green florists worth knowing about across the UK.

Petalon, London

Petalon was founded by Florence Kennedy in 2014, after her husband James wanted to send a bunch of flowers one day and they both realised there wasn’t much choice for arrangements that were beautiful yet affordable. Florence and James began to form an idea for a better kind of flower delivery and Petalon was born, with the aim of offering sustainable flower bunches around London. Petalon delivers two different bouquets each week, with flowers that are as fresh and seasonal as possible, while also focusing on limited waste. All of the bouquet prices include carbon neutral delivery, a donation to Bee Collective and for every 100 arrangements they send, they plant a tree.

Scarlet & Violet, London

At Scarlet & Violet, you are able to design your own unique arrangements from scratch. All year round, the florist hand selects sustainably sourced flora and foliage from British growers and to avoid the use of plastics, all bouquets are hand wrapped in paper – with the option for selections to be delivered in vintage-inspired vases.

Kintala Flowers, Wales

Inspired by love for the land and nature, Kintala Flowers creates environmentally friendly and thoughtful floral designs. They choose to arrange only British and seasonal flowers, reusing materials and focusing on reduced plastic and water consumption. Even the finer details are rooted in sustainability, right down to tying bouquets with ethically made and naturally plant dyed ribbons.

Wild at Heart, London

Whatever you decide to order, all selections at Wild at Heart are wrapped up in recyclable and biodegradable packaging, with sprigs plucked from the flower fields of British growers. Founder Nikki and her team are dedicated to the creative journey, from the first mood boards to the final arrangements and every detail is always carefully considered.

The Garden, Ireland

The Garden at Powerscourt Town House is created and owned by award-winning landscape designer Mark Grehan, who has worked in creative floristry since 2003. Mark specialises in wildflowers, earthy tones, bursts of colour and seasonal plantings – with an additional focus on sustainability. Due to high demand in Ireland, floral arrangements are now available to order online for delivery.

Flowers by Hedge, Birmingham

Using British flowers and supporting small artisan growers, Hedge produces flowers that are seasonal, fresh and grown locally rather than flown in from other countries. They also use sustainable floristry techniques and are available to work with for weddings to create unique, special arrangements.

Keeping the Plot, Scotland

Scottish florist Keeping the Plot offer sustainably grown, seasonal, local flowers from Fife. Growing according to organic principles, they continually improve the soil and encourage a healthy microorganism population and are focused on enhancing the local habitat provisions for wildlife. Featuring the best of what is in season, they arrange their flowers in an informal style.
