“I’m very happy to be supporting British Flowers Week, working with New Covent Garden Flower Market and other professional florists to promote British flowers and foliage. I was born in Brazil and have lived in many countries but England is my beautiful and inspiring adopted country – the place where I chose to bring up my children and set up my business. I’m looking forward to celebrating the richness and variety of wild and cultivated flowers, grasses and greenery that can be found across the whole landscape of the British Isles, adding a tinge of Brazilian zest and sensitivity to my creations for the campaign!”
Zita Elze, British Flowers Week 2015 – 15th to 19th June
Check the British Flowers Week website for news and events. Until the special week’s designs are revealed, we’ve posted some simple ideas to inspire, using homegrown and native spring flowers.
