Message by The Duchess of Cornwall on British Flowers Week 2020
In these difficult times, when we are all searching for something to brighten our lives, there is nothing that can lift our spirits more than our native flowers and plants. They’re nature’s healers.
In our gardens, in our window boxes, or even in just a simple vase, their glorious scents and myriad of colors are veritable life enhancers. That is why, this year in particular, British Flower Week is even more important than ever.
As the Patron of Floral Angels, who are based at the market, I would like to say a huge thank you to the new Covent Garden Market and the Garden Museum for making this celebration of the wealth and variety of British-grown flowers possible, and to the people behind them – the groomers, the gardeners, the florists, and everyone who appreciates their beauty and their contribution to our wellbeing.
Keep safe and ‘say it with flowers’.
