Supporting British flower growers
From scented stocks to sunflowers, WaitroseFlorist is proud to support British growers in delivering fresh, homegrown flowers so you can send bouquets featuring the best British blooms.
We're really proud of the long-standing working relationships we've nurtured with our trusted British flower growers and work with them every season to bring you bouquets and planters featuring many celebrated British varieties with summer being the seasonal highlight.
Every season we collaborate with the wonderful team at Emma Bridgewater to bring you an exclusive ceramic piece, adorned with a floral pattern to reflect the seasonal flower arrangement it has been thoughtfully paired with.
Coming soon! As the season warms to late summer, you can take your pick from cheerful sunflowers, spectacular iris and spears of vibrant gladioli in late summer.

How to care for your British flowers
Homegrown blooms are the freshest cut flowers - make the most of their vase life by following these simple steps:
Choose a vase
Make sure the vase your display goes into suits the style of bouquet and is as clean as possible as this prevents bacterial growth to keep flowers fresher for longer.
Feed your flowers
Fill your vase with fresh lukewarm water and don’t forget to add your WaitroseFlorist flower food! This is specially formulated to suit the stems in your bouquet.
Trim the stems
Trimming an inch from the bottom of the flower stems at a 45 degree angle allows for optimum water intake so your bouquet appears at its best. Remove any foliage that sits below the water level to keep the water fresh.
Find the right place
A cool spot away from direct sunlight and draughts is the best place to display your bouquet.
