#FloralFriday (May 8th) saw thousands of friends come together in the sunshine to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of VE Day. As the nation celebrated with neighbours, in a socially distant fashion, bunting and flags adorned the streets of towns and villages and afternoon tea was enjoyed in the front gardens of thousands. With many once again taking part in #FloralFriday, this special Anniversary day ensured the garden industry remained in the minds of those who last week took part.
Perrywood, Barton Grange, Millbrook, GTN, Vitax Ltd, Evergreen Garden Care, Taylors Bulbs, HTA, LOFA, GIMA, Glee, Hornby Whitefoot are just some of those businesses who regularly join in the floral fun on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. And in doing so, keeping their brand alive along with that of Greenfingers Charity.
With garden centres set to re-open this week and many planning how to watch a virtual RHS Chelsea Flower Show, this Friday (15th May) is the perfect time for you to get involved, promote your plants, your products, your business and your location.
