  • Scented Narcissi Survives the Storms

    After a long period of high winds and tides on the islands,  we are delighted to say that not only are our flowers flourishing, with new varieties coming up every day, we also had little to no disruptions to our deliveries during the storms.

    Despite having faced the worst storms on the Islands since 1980, the flower farmers of Scented Narcissi have been working furiously to battle the elements, and with the help of the Isles of Scilly Steamship Company, kept business open as usual shipping their flowers across to the Mainland.

    It’s been a challenging time logistically for us, but it has not affected the quality of the Scented Narcissi we have sent out, and thanks to the efforts of the Steamship Company, and our Courier service, has had little to no disruption to the delivery of our bouquets.

    Rob Hale of Tremelethen Farm said “The huge undertaking of hedge planting around the hundreds of tiny fields to create a ‘Shelter Belt’ over the last 25 years provides protection from the wind to the majority of the crop.  The loss is minimal after such a sustained period of high wind strength- it’s amazing more damage has not occurred“
