New Covent Garden Market’s British Flowers Week

New Covent Garden Market’s British Flowers Week is back in bloom for its 10-year anniversary, 12th – 19th June 2022

British Flowers Week – a campaign run by New Covent Garden Market, the UK’s premier wholesale Flower Market – is returning for its 10th year between Sunday 12th and Sunday 19th June 2022. The week-long celebration highlights the beauty and variety of British cut flowers, foliage and plants, as well as the amazing work of the florists, growers and wholesalers who put British-grown flowers in the spotlight.

Everyone is encouraged to get involved by decorating their windows with British flowers to mark the week. Whether it’s with a single stem, a bouquet made from garden flowers or a spectacular display, a decorated window will signal support for the British flower industry this June.

In the past, we have run a series of virtual and face-to-face events each British Flowers Week. This year, we’re going online and aiming at a wider audience – and we would love to see the work of anyone and everyone who is involved in the sector or enthused by the incredible array of homegrown blooms, foliage and plants that’s in season right now.

Share your designs, share your shop windows and share your inspiration and we will help to tell the nation. Britain has such a strong heritage of wonderful floral art; it’s something we can all be proud of so let’s get it out there for everyone to see!

Garden Museum

As in previous years, British Flowers Week will enjoy the support of The Garden Museum. The Garden Museum’s annual BFW exhibition is returning, in partnership with New Covent Garden Market, to unite florists, flower growers and flower lovers in a celebration of British-grown flowers and the immense creative talent in floral design to be found across the country.

Five of the country’s top florists will create show-stopping floral installations, transforming the Garden Museum into a five-day immersive floral wonderland filled with the heavenly scents and colours of beautiful British blooms. The floral sculptures will be made with seasonal, sustainably sourced, British-grown flowers, using environmentally friendly materials and methods.

Responding to the theme ‘The Future’, this year’s installations will use floral design to explore sustainability, the future of floristry and its impact on the environment, and the intersection of nature, humans, and technology.

Go to to meet the florists exhibiting from June 5th to 13th.
