Who doesn’t love having a nice bunch of flowers to brighten up any occasion?

The only issue is the floral industry can often be wasteful.

What's wrong with fresh flowers?

  • The majority of fresh flowers bought in the UK are imported, and the transportation of them releases a large amount of carbon emissions.
  • Farming fresh flowers also involves harmful chemicals to help them grow and stay fresh.
  • Fresh flowers then only last for around 10 days, resulting in more frequent purchase.

Dried flowers are an eco-friendly solution. They last much longer and are just as beautiful as fresh flowers.

Our expert team at pebble has compiled a list of the best dried flowers florists in the UK so that you can find the perfect dried flower bouquet, from a wedding to sending a gift.
