If you buy a bucket of seasonal flowers what do you actually get, and more importantly, how far does it go?
Well, to start with, you will receive a bucket, filled with around 70 stems of gorgeous Cumbrian grown fresh picked flowers & foliage.

You could of course put these flowers together however you wish – or maybe for table arrangements, a couple of blooms in old bottles, or a couple of larger vase arrangements.
I hope this helps your decision process! Any questions, email me on email@example.com, or message me on Facebook/Instagram @clodhopperblooms
