London to host World of Flowers

New Covent Garden Market is hosting another event for trade florists following A Celebration of London Floristry and the Best of British Flowers.

The World of Flowers event set to take place on 22 October will feature floral demonstrations by a variety of London florists using a selection of flowers from the Netherlands, Israel, Kenya and Colombia, as well as from growers from across Britain.

Tours around the flower market will take place before and after the event and will be led by some of the florists who regularly buy supplies there.

During the tour, the florists will explain what goes into the smooth operation of the market and how growers can use it to enhance and boost their businesses.
