  • Wild and Windy on Scilly

    We've had a terrible week of weather here on St.Mary's this week, with winds of  90 mph hitting the islands, teamed with high tides and waves of up to 40 feet!

    A huge thank you to our pickers and farmers who have been out every day this week, battling the elements to keep up with the cropping Scented Narcissi- yesterday our pickers were picking in 80 mph winds in hail and rain storms!

    Unbelievably, we have had minimal disruptions to our deliveries this week, managing with the help of Skybus, to fly the majority of our flowers out on Tuesday morning. We will endeavour to deliver all remaining bouquets on Friday of this week. If you have any questions concerning your order, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us on 01720 423767, or orders@scentednarcissi.co.uk.

    Have a look below at some of the stormy pictures taken on the islands last night and this morning- the seas have pushed sand right into the town centre!

  • Severe Weather Warnings Affecting Deliveries This Week

     

    Unfortunately, we have been hit severely by the bad weather again on St. Mary's. At present, all flights are on hold, and a cancellation to the mid week boat we usually use means disruptions to our deliveries this week.

    We will endeavour to send out our bouquets as soon as we can, and are hoping for a delivery at the end of the week. If you have any questions, or queries, or would like to amend your order, please don't hesitate to contact us on:

  • We Have Changed: But It's Still Us

    Well where do we start with the changes this Season? If you follow us on Facebook or Twitter, you will have seen over the last two weeks sneak previews of what it is we have been doing. If you haven't? Let us show you!

    1. Our Brand New Logo:

    We have gone from this:

    Scented Narcissi's Old Logo

    To this:

    We wanted our new logo to look as beautiful as our flowers, so we called upon one of our friends, Graphic Designer Jacqui Stephens of Design Jellyfish to help us achieve this beautiful logo! We are now rolling out this logo on beautiful new bespoke flower boxes, designed to get your flowers from us to you in perfect condition.

    2. Our Courier Company

    We have changed our courier company to the wonderful APC this Season. We speak with our Cornish contact, Ross, every morning to discuss the delivery of our flowers, so they are picked up within moments of being delivered from St.Mary's to Lands End in Cornwall, and start their onward journey.

    3. Farmer Tags

    Scented Narcissi Farmer Tags

    We are proud to support the family run Scented Narcissi farms here on St. Mary's and St.Agnes, and we want to give our farmers more credit, and you more of an idea where your flowers are from. So now enjoy Scented Narcissi Farmer Tags with each bouquet we send out- so you know exactly where your Scented Narcissi came from! Can you collect a tag from each farm this Season? Click here to meet all our Farmers!

    4. Message Cards

    Our new message tags are delicately hand- tied around each bouquet with our bespoke branded ribbon, containing your personal message to your recipient. With Flower care instructions on the back, once untied, you can prop this card up next to your vase, so you always remember how to look after them!

    5. Website

    Using the wonderful Insite Digital, we have created a brand new website for you this season. Not only does this design give you more access to news about our flowers and farmers, it also gives you more ways to shop and an easier way to check out- especially for all of you placing multiple orders. If you need any help at all navigating your way around our new website, we are on hand: 01720 423767, orders@scentednarcissi.co.uk

    6. New Collections

    Finally, we want to assure you that just because we have changed some things this Season, we are still very much the Isles of Scilly flower company you know and trust. The changes we have made this Season have all come from our tiny team putting their heads together and listening to the feedback you have given us, to create something beautiful that you will want to send and receive. It is still our beautiful Isles of Scilly Flowers, Scented Narcissi, you are receiving, and our hands that arrange your beautiful bouquets.
