The greenest part of this operation, other than the flora they provide, is that it’s all done organically: no chemicals or colours added, all natural farming techniques, and hand-picked and hand-packed flowers. Imagine if those countless summer weddings going on right now all used organically grown, dried flower petals instead of the usual paper confetti or rice? Pretty cool stuff. Not only that, it’s really a great way to extend the life cycle of your flowers. First enjoy their beautiful colours and smells and then dry them up to use as natural, biodegradable and environmentally-friendly confetti. Good work Shropshire.
