How Scilly Flowers works
We grow flowers all year round in small fields sheltered from the Atlantic by tall hedges. In the winter we grow the traditional flower crop of the Isles of Scilly, scented narcissi and in the summer we grow scented pinks.
For over 25 years the Julian family have been sending gift boxes of scented island grown flowers by 1st class post from Churchtown Farm for delivery all over the UK.
As the flowers come direct from us, you are sending the freshest flowers to your friends and family as well as receiving the best value possible.
We specialise in growing two flower varieties:
- Scented narcissi in the winter from October - April
- Scented pinks in the summer from May - September
How does it all happen?
The orders you place will be checked and when it is time to send your flowers a label with your message and the delivery address is printed out.
This is taken into the packing shed where your box of flowers is carefully packed. We pack on tables covered in carpet, we find that the soft surface helps protect the flowers and helps to keep the boxes and other packing materials in pristine condition.
Once packed your flowers are sent by 1st class post. The flowers are taken by post boat to the main island of St Mary's and then onwards by plane, or occasionally boat, to join the mainland postal network.
You can expect your flowers to arrive with the 1st class post the next day or the day after they leave us - we always allow 2 days for delivery. All our flowers are guaranteed so if there is ever a problem with our service please let us know so that we can put it right.
We send flowers that we have grown ourselves at Churchtown Farm and flowers that have been grown by other flower farms on the Isles of Scilly, ensuring that other growers get a fair price for the best flowers they grow.
In our bouquets and sprays of mixed flowers we use as many Scilly and Cornish flowers as we can with other seasonal flowers that we source from Holland. It is a bit like a veg box with the contents varying quite regularly depending on what is in season.

It's only short but hopefully just long enough for you to get a real feel of where your flowers come from and the magic that is the Isles of Scilly!
