Meet sunflower grower Matt

Matt Naylor’s family has been growing flowers in south Lincolnshire since the 1940s and his sunflowers are conditioned to give our customers the best, longest-lasting blooms. The team harvest the flowers by hand every day, seven days a week, to ensure maximum freshness and quality. But that’s not all – Matt and his team work hard to minimise water waste by watering the flowers with recycled rainwater and are working with other farmers on a joint irrigation plan.

Sunflower styling tips

Make summer celebrations even more special by setting the table with vases of vibrant yellow sunflowers. Simply gather a selection of glasses, vases and terracotta pots, trim the sunflower stems to suit the size of the pot and remove any leaves that fall below the water line. Fill the vases and pots with fresh water and flower food. To keep the blooms looking beautiful for longer, refresh the water and re-cut the stems every couple of days.
