Flower bunches are director Ruth's favourite thing at Daisyshop - she gets as many British blooms as she can for the shop, supplementing them with an amazing range from around Europe and beyond. She even dries some bunches in the workshop (best choice June to Oct). Sometimes we have English peonies like ones in the picture.

This bouquet (right) was made from some of our most popular items:
1. Dry lavender bunch from France - multibuys available.
2. Delphinium bunches come in pink, white or blue but pink is the most popular.
3. Wheat bunches are a great filler and are eye-catching when made into a large wheat sheaf.
As you can see from the photo, these three dry stems look great made into a hand-tied bouquet.
If you are looking to support British growers, look out for our Union Jack heart symbol. We source as many of our dried flowers as possible from within the UK. For example, although French lavender bunches are already popular, British lavender is also available and a great mid blue colour. Delphinium stems and wheat are really popular and we buy these from UK growers whenever price, availability and quality allows.
The image above shows L-R: UK grown British dry gypsophila from our own workshop - a great filler, and popular for weddings,
Yellow billy buttons bunch - this fun bunch is increasingly popular for adding a touch of colour to wedding bouquets and decorations as well as home decor.
All available seasonally.
For mixed bouquets and decorations, why not buy a few bunches, taking a few stems from each to mix and match, such as the dyed lagurus grasses in pinks and reds above. For posies and gifts, tie in a simple bow with ribbon, twine or coloured raffia.
Try cottage garden varieties for an informal style such as delphinium, clover, oats, wheat and lavender.
This style is similar to messy styles like boho, country and rustic wildflower themes - look for flowers with lax untidy stems, rather than upright, or that would naturally grow in the wild, such as clover, daisies and quaking grass.
Dried flowers for home decor - natural grasses such as lagurus and miscanthus are popular for modern clean chic looks - just pop a few tall stems in a narrow necked vase or elegant bottle.
Dyed dried flower bunches are becoming increasingly sought after to add a colour pop to a bouquet. Certain colours like teal or kingfisher blues are almost impossible to find in nature, so rather than change your colour scheme, why not try dyed!
