Love Delivered: Ethical Flowers

divider
“ Not only do they look heavenly, but the rooms of my home are filled with their sweet, fresh scent.”
Flowers

Editing a title like OX not only allows me to interview fascinating people or sample sumptuous skincare; it is also an education.

Prior to taking up the position I hadn’t thought too much about the ethics of cut flowers, but I have read with increasing interest about the impact of imported blooms and the emergence of UK-based, sustainable flower growers, some of whom also offer delivery options (see flowersfromthefarm.co.uk).

Love Delivered is based in Lincolnshire where they grow a variety of exquisite, seasonal, floral delights, irrigated using recycled rainwater and kept warm through winter through use of a biomass heating system which uses recycled wood. Packaging is – obviously – recyclable, too, and I really like the fact they come cosseted in a biodegradable gel (rather than water) to keep them fresh and hydrated. Not only do they look heavenly, but the rooms of my home are filled with their sweet, fresh scent.

In an ideal world we could herald the change in seasons by throwing open our windows and allowing the sweet scents of nature to fill our homes. In practice, we can help nature along a little by using fragrance to create the ambiance we are seeking, be it posh hotel lobby, an intimate boudoir or even summer on the Med.
