A new cut flower venture here at The Oak Tree!

For a couple of years now we have offered cut flowers to our members as “Flower Shares” – bunches of flowers added to the weekly veg box during the summer and autumn. We will, of course, offer these again to our members, but this year we will also be offering  bouquets  of our beautiful, low carbon flowers by post.

Most flowers sold here have been grown overseas, doused in chemicals to make them last longer and then sent over countless “flower miles” to the UK. We offer a genuinely ecological, and utterly beautiful, alternative. We use only water to keep our flowers fresh, and they are cut on the same day that they are sent to whoever is going to enjoy them!

More details to follow in the months to come, but for now some pictures of last year’s beautiful Oak Tree Flowers, along with a first glimpse of this years first flower seedlings!
