Sustainable and plastic free at the Chelsea Flower Show and close to home
This is not my garden! The photo above is actually of Lindum Wildflower Turf at the Chelsea Flower Show, which is the first to be grown without plastic matting earning it the prize of RHS Chelsea Sustainable Gardening Product of the Year 2023.
At Cards and Gift Wrap we are all for sustainability and plastic free, which is why we have our own range of plastic free paper tape…and we also love flowers!
So this week, while we’re all in awe of the blooms at Chelsea I thought I’d do a little focus on some of our favourite floral artists.
Claire is well known for her coastal and floral designs, has been a firm favourite throughout Phoenix Trading and Flamingo Paperie and I am delighted to find her cards are available through the Eco-friendly Card Company too so her cards will be available to you for years to come at Cards and Gift Wrap.
Nicola doesn’t just do flowers and she’s one of those illustrators who is so versatile that sometimes her work isn’t instantly recognisable, if you know what I mean.
But her flower bouquets and patterns are always popular.
Jane Morgan is new to Cards and Gift Wrap but we instantly fell in love with her wildflower canvases of beauty.
Jane’s cards are available with words on the front or usually with a blank alternative – I’d love to know which you prefer?
Also new to Cards and Gift Wrap is Sally Rich. Her cards are all without words but full to bursting with bright and cheerful colours.
Floral cards are so versatile and are great to keep in your card box as they can be used for so many occasions and for anyone.
Growing your own!
Meanwhile I potter about in my ‘crub. If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you’ll already have seen my strawberry (yes singular – so far!)…is there anything more satisfying than growing your own?
Happy gardening and may the wonders of the Chelsea Flower Show inspire you!
