This summer we are planning to harvest 850 million petals from flowers grown on the Shropshire Petals farm to make biodegradable petal confetti.
All our petals are hand picked in the field to make sure only the best flowers are chosen for our brides and grooms. As June and July have been so hot, sunny and dry we're really been working hard to make sure our confetti is it's usual high quality. This means making sure our flowers are watered and weeds are removed too, it's been non-stop!
Take a look at this video of the flower field below:
Thankfully because of all the sunshine the flowers are in bloom slightly earlier this summer, so we've got a busy few weeks of picking, drying and packing all the confetti to send around the world! It's busy here on the farm too. With wedding season in full swing we're sending more orders than ever from the petal shed. Each order is hand packed with care and attention.
We love to see how you use our confetti too to make sure to send us in your confetti photos. It makes all the long days worth it!
Shropshire Petals have been recognised by several awards, most recently at The British Wedding Awards 2018 (for the second year running.)
