It's the first of March and there is a heavy blanket of snow all around us here in Suffolk after "The Beast from the east" has passed through!

We've taken some time off at the beginning of the year after a very busy build up to Christmas.

But we are now back and bouncing around getting excited about spring and all those wonderful blooms that are yet to pop!

Daisy dog our wee pup who is almost a year old in March, she is turning out to be a great help within the team and her mum Holly dog is so pleased she stayed with us!

So what's new for Blooms and Buds in 2018? Well we are soon be to launching our

  • Weekly flower subscription - this is going to brilliant and a such a great gift idea too. We are going to bring weekly flower deliveries to you for just £23 a week. That includes postage and packaging and of course a cracking bunch of flowers! All you have to do is unpack them, cut the stems and place them in your favourite vase! You'll receive your own log in details where you can review your details and should you need to cancel the delivery for a week then you simply opt out then regular deliveries will commence again automatically.
  • Our fresh foliage & flower garland collection is also new this year. We have always specialised in garlands at Christmas but have created a collection for  year round decoration. Just like our Christmas garlands we make them all to your order so you can guarantee that they are as fresh as a daisy! These garlands are just perfect for any wedding, dressing of marquees, events, outdoor parties, table runners and so much more! Of course many people require bespoke lengths or more deluxe garlands and we are always happy to work with you on your ideas so just get in touch via email
  • The seasonal wreath collection are also very popular and this year we intend to increase our wedding wreath series. Again we make all of these wreaths to each individual order and bespoke orders are always welcome, these wreaths add such a great personal tough to any wedding, or special occasion or if you simply love to have something on your door!

We plant as many of our own flowers for the season in the Blooms and Buds garden and we hope to build on this year after year so we can provide very fresh British grown flowers. If we can't source our flowers and foliage from our own gardens then we reach out to other British growers and buy directly from them. This means that the flowers we order are cut just before delivery this really helps to keep them fresh and long lasting which we love, and of course from this country!

What to look forward to in March:

Mothers Day 11th March- why not treat your mother to a weekly flower subscription this year... amazing bunches of flowers delivered to her each week.

St Patricks day 17th March - time to celebrate with the Irish and drink Guinness!

BRITISH SUMMER TIME BEGINS 25th March - We can't wait for this one! Don't forget to change your clocks.

Bank holidays ... Good Friday 30th March followed by Easter and Easter Monday 1st April- why not order one of our "cracking" Easter wreaths with eggs on!

Enjoy the snow whilst it's here, keep your eyes peeled for March hares, don't forget to feed your birds whilst this cold snap is here too. Once the snow is gone we hope to see some spring like weather and some changed in the garden ready for another busy season ahead.

All the best - until next time,

Blooms and Buds
