  • BFA Floristry Demonstrations presenting: Neil Whitaker

    Dennis van Wonderen on 16 Jun 2008 at 04:42 PM

    Wow, what a week! It's seriously tempting when you're working the stand at Gardeners World Live to indulge in the yummie foods on offer in the food hall. All the marvellous aroma's wafting through the plant hall were giving my nose a serious beating and have now left me with some crash dieting to do for the next week or so to work off the added extra's!

    Tatton is almost upon us and just enough time left to tell you about our fourth demonstrator on Saturday 26th July, Neil Whitaker.

  • BFA Stand wins a Silver Gilt Medal at Gardeners World Live

    Dennis van Wonderen on 11 Jun 2008 at 10:22 PM

    It's been a couple of weeks since Chelsea and after winning our first ever Bronze Grenfell medal for our stand at the Chelsea Flower Show I told you all to watch this space as we would be going 'onwards and upwards' and I am pleased to inform you that I have managed to make that statement a reality!

    To say that we were pleased with our Silver Gilt Medal for our stand at Gardeners World Live would be an understatement as the screams of delight were able to be heard in Solihull and beyond! Thrilled to bits and over the moon are just a few phrases that I can use to describe how pleased we all are with our result

  • Gardeners World Live, here we come!

    Dennis van Wonderen on 02 Jun 2008 at 07:03 PM

    After a very heavy week at Chelsea it's been a delight to walk back into the shop again and smell the flowers. It's funny how you miss certain things when you're not around them. Some of you might think how weird? Being at Chelsea would have meant being surrounded by flowers and yes, this is true. But the scent from plants is very different than that from cut flowers in a florist. There is that certain aroma that wafts towards you when you enter a florist, and that is what I realised I had been missing when I was away from the shop last week.

    Our Bronze medal has taken pride place on the counter and is the talk of Lower Sunbury! The team of BFA members that worked on the stand did incredibly well and we are all immensly proud of our acchievement. Roll on Gardeners World Live I say! We are re-creating our Chelsea exhibit for those of you that missed it the first time round with a few slight alterations here and there. So if you're coming along to the show, do please pop in and see us on the BFA stand in hall 18
