  • 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 would like to say a huge "Thank You" to our wonderful customers who have been so understanding with any delays to deliveries in the last week due to the extreme weather faced. Below are just a few images captured by some of the locals on Scilly during the last week.

    Thank You again for your continued support at this challenging time for all of us on Scilly- as a testament to the quality of our flowers, you will be pleased to know they are still standing strong, protected by the hedgerows of our small fields.
