Not long off now, we are gearing up, looking forward to Christmas in the shop this year. Wild & Wondrous Flowers will be having the greenest, most eco and sustainable Christmas yet!
Our door wreath workshops are sold out and start this week, with our biggest ever class of 20 up at The Tree Barn on Saturday. Twenty people…..it sounded good at the time when we wrote it in the dairy, the nerves are kicking now, though! I am really excited about working with Chris from The Tree Barn.
This picture is from last years workshop at Wild & Wondrous Flowers Blackrod. Bolton.
Chris grows Christmas Trees, cut on request and pot grown. You can go, walk around and choose your tree. Pot-grown trees can even be returned to carry on growing after Christmas. How sustainable is that! Chris asked Wild & Wondrous to supply the door wreaths, grave pots and table decoration to sell alongside the Christmas trees this year. All the spruce, pine, moss and cones for all our Christmas wreaths, pots and floral designs will be supplied by Chris. The Tree Barn is approximately two miles from the shop, using really local grown materials excites me, NO air miles!

And FairTrade eco Christmas cards that are plantable. These beautiful handmade Christmas cards are available with a reindeer, Christmas tree or bauble design. The paper contains seeds, so you can plant the card afterwards!
The paper for the cards is handmade with recycled paper. Some cards have flower seeds and some have a mixture of herb seeds embedded in the paper:
Mixed flowers: Alyssum, Poppies
Herbs: Basil, Rocket
We have lots of other green Christmas products in our flower shop in Blackrod, near Horwich, Bolton that can be delivered locally or nationally.
