Sustainability at Strawberry Hill House


The UK’s most sustainable flower festival, the prestigious Strawberry Hill House Flower Festival is back for a fourth consecutive year on 23rd-25th September in association with Flowers from the Farm.


Set in the vividly decorated or gilded rooms of Horace Walpole’s Gothic manor house, this unique event not only showcases the very best of British-grown flowers, but also foam-free sustainable floristry and the design creativity of some of the UK’s leading floral designers and farmer-florists - see below for the full list.


Expertly curated by Leigh Chappell and Janne Ford, every stem of the cut flowers and foliages – both fresh and dried - will have been grown by members of Flowers from the Farm.


On Friday, 23rd September, Shane Connolly, the acclaimed sustainable floristry advocate will take to the Flower Festival Stage alongside flower farmer, Polly Nicholson of Bayntun Flowers to give an exclusive floral demonstration.

Shane, who holds Royal Warrants to her late Majesty the Queen and His Majesty The King, said: “We floral designers owe a debt of gratitude to Nature and the planet; so we must create designs that are beautiful without and within. Designing sustainably does not stop creativity and magic, so it’s time we stopped hiding behind the pretty flowers, acknowledge the huge environmental issues, and show how it can be done, with festivals like The Strawberry Hill House Flower Festival.”


Visitors will be able to take guided tours of Horace Walpole’s remarkable Gothic manor house throughout the Festival. There will be sessions showing visitors how they too can adopt more sustainable methods of flower arranging, plus a chance to quiz Strawberry Hill’s own gardening team.
