ABOUT OUR FLOWERS
We work with growers in the Netherlands and on occasion we do source from from other locations. We hope that in the future we would love to be able to source more of our flowers from growers within the UK and will keep our eyes peeled to make this transition if and where we can.
How do our bunches last so long?
Our dried flowers are hung for several weeks in a well ventilated space so that the moisture leaves and the flower/grass or foliage turns brittle. They than no longer rely on water to survive and will keep well in a shady space with no moisture or wind.
Our preserved flowers undergo a special treatment where the sap is replaced with 100% plant based glycerine and natural dyes. This keeps the flowers looking and feeling natural for many months/years. The dyes can sometimes rub off so please read our care instructions to keep your bunch looking good for as long as possible.
It is becoming more and more evident especially after the traumatic year that was 2020, just how much we need and benefit from nature. With most of us turning to the outdoors for enjoyment and a break from our homes.
Now more than ever we need to help replenish and rebuild the damage we have done to our surroundings.
One small step can cause a huge difference over a long period of time.
The Botanical Bunch has been created because I (Jade the Founder) gets so much pleasure out of working with nature and creating arrangements that can keep us happy and connected in our own homes and on special days.
The goal of The Botanical Bunch is to create a transparent and circular business where we give back from what we take. So to start this process, we donate a portion of our profits to planting trees in the UK. We donate on a quarterly basis to The Woodlands Trust where roughly £1 equals 1 tree planted.
When it comes to our packaging, every item used has been researched and considered carefully.
Almost all of our suppliers package our goods in tissue paper over plastic, we then reuse that tissue paper to support our flower hat boxes in their postal boxes, causing less waste.
We ask our flower hatbox suppliers to exclude the plastic lining as it is not necessary for dried flowers.
We use Kraft Paper or hessian to wrap our bouquets.
We also use hessian for majority of our ribbon.
Did you know that hessian is made of vegetable fibres and so its 100% biodegradable.
Our postal boxes are made using 100% recycled cardboard and our bubble wrap is also made from 100% recycled materials.
Our stickers are printed on a white plastic like sheet but are actually sustainably sourced from wood pulp, making them 100% compostable too.
We use a wooden stamp where stickers are not needed.
Our natural vases are ethically sourced and handmade in Indonesia and Africa using all natural materials such as water hyacinth and seagrass.
We know that there are always things that we can adapt and change along the way and by no means are we perfect.
But we promise to always be working on it.
Consciously Crafted For People Who Care.
