The 3 wise people of Christmas
Wise man number 1
The logistical challenges of posting so many flowers from the Isles of Scilly are complex. Our operations manager Neil gets the ball rolling in August with our first Christmas meeting.
Neil joined the team after many years working in hospitality, bringing with him great skills at managing people and upscaling teams for events. This is very useful as Neil's next job is to ensure we have enough people to pick and pack your flowers.,
The Christmas rush starts early for our office manager Ruth. We normally have at least one or two new full time team members who join the office team in the Autumn. Ruth needs to get them trained up so they can process your orders accurately and be a friendly and knowledgeable voice at the end of the phone if you call.
Our third wise man
Outside in the fields our farm manager Jon and his team have been nurturing our Christmas narcissi since early summer. By December the picking team is out in all weathers. All your Scilly scented narcissi are picked by hand in small sheltered fields but there is only so much shelter the tall hedges can provide from an Atlantic gale!
