Isles of Scilly Flowers

 Isles of Scilly Flowers is a family-run business, owned by the lovely Francis Hosken and his wife Christine. Together with their Daughter Jenny and granddaughter Daisy they create a remarkable service with beautiful bouquets of locally outdoor-grown Narcissi.

Stem by stem these hand-picked flowers are grown to perfection and packed with the environment in mind using recyclable cardboard boxes with absorbent tissue paper for protection.

Generously packed with love and posted via Royal Mail direct to the mainland.

THEIR WORK IS ALL YEAR ROUND.
Just because the main flower season ends their work still goes on; these wonderful caring people continue working bringing Gladioli and Sweet William together with Show Pinks of a variety of colours and a beautiful scent.

 

In addition, they create and deliver beautiful bespoke bouquets using their own flowers to order on St. Mary's. Give them a call for that special occasion!

No matter what time of year this business is always on the go. Work continues, preparing the ground, clearing out tired worn-out plants and bulbs then replacing with fresh, creating earlier and later growing seasons with use of their polytunnels. There's also a Farm Shop at their farm at Trenoweth, so if you're on the Islands you can buy flowers and a few fresh seasonal vegetables such as potatoes and tomatoes.

Here you can see two seasons of Narcissi growing. 

Paper white get picked into bunches of 10's measured in height and organised. 

Their hard work continues year round as there is always plenty of weeding and clearing out of old to prepare for fresh new beauties

Once picked, it's back to the barn for the packing. Pre-picked flowers are stored standing in the cooler so that the stems don't buckle. 

You can purchase a variety of bunch amounts and can be selected as an ongoing order paying monthly. And the best thing is that the DELIVERY IS FREE. Why not go the extra mile to make your purchase even more special and add a little fudge treat and personalised message to go with the delivery, at a small extra charge of course. 

Once the box is sealed with postage details it's ready to be weighed with the others out for delivery using their very own weighing scales. They are then transported to the mainland by either of the transports provided by the Isles of Scilly Steamship company. They are distributed via Royal Mail to the rest of mainland UK.

There’s so much more on their social media sites and website, with regular updates on which flowers are in season, work being done, beautiful Isles of Scilly scenery, and much, much more, so why not go and take a look for yourselves. 

You can't beat the scent and beauty of the many varieties of Narcissi, so if you are thinking of something to make a friend or loved one smile, send them a gift in the post.
