The Duchess of Cornwall has created a bouquet from her garden to celebrate the start of British Flowers Week, which runs between Mon 15 and Sun 21 June.

The Duchess has created a video message of support for British Flowers Week, which we’re thrilled to share - you can watch the message of support below.

As a keen gardener, Her Royal Highness has created her very own arrangement of British flowers grown and picked by her at her home in Birkhall, Scotland. The arrangement features forget-me-nots, cranesbill, alchemilla, tulips, peonies, poppies, cow parsley and Solomon’s Seal, which you can see in more detail below.

British Flowers Week celebrates the wealth and variety of British cut flowers, plants and foliage, with a 'healing' theme for this year. We want people across the UK to reflect on the positive joy and soothing effect flowers can have.

Join in the celebrations by adding a display of British flowers to your own window, front porch or gate for passers-by to see this British Flowers Week.

The Duchess is already the patron of charity Floral Angels, based at New Covent Garden Flower Market. Floral Angels recycle flowers used at weddings and events into smaller bouquets to send out to community organisations, such as care homes and hospices.

You can buy British blooms here and find out more about this year's campaign here. Visit our official British Flowers Week website to join the celebrations.
