Scent from the Islands is a postal flower business specialising in scented narcissi from October to April and scented show pinks from May to September.
The company, run from a tiny island with a population of 100, posts 90,000 boxes of flowers each year, with 20,000 boxes of narcissi going to all parts of the UK in the weeks leading up to Christmas alone. It employs up to 30 people in peak periods.
The company was founded in 1992 by Andrew and Hilary Julian, who moved to the island from London. It is now run by their son Ben and his wife Zoe.
"We’re very fortunate to have seen a rise in demand and are delighted to be about to notch up our millionth box this Christmas – our busiest time of year," said senior partner Ben Julian.
"A million boxes is a fantastic achievement for our business but it’s also wonderful news for our staff who work so hard to make Scent from the Islands a real success story. We couldn’t do it without them."
