Remember to bring some floral cheer to the nation on #floralfriday tomorrow - Good Friday

Here’s how you can join in, it's really easy and it does bring good cheer!


On your favourite social media platforms simply:  

  • post a photo of yourself in your favourite floral shirt, dress, hat, shoes, tie, pjs or similar (or your favourite floral photo)
  • use the hashtags #floralfriday #hortindustry #greenfingers
  • nominate a friend to do the same
  • send this story on to your colleagues while they are “working at home”
  • add this story into your customer communications so that your customers can get some floral cheer even if they’re unable to buy plants and garden supplies from you just now.


And PLEASE give a thought too, to the thousands of life-limited children, families, nurses and the wider hospice communities who benefit from spending time in the many Greenfingers Charity gardens in children’s hospices right across the UK.  You and those you nominate can donate by:


Texting FLORALFRIDAY to 70085 to donate £5 or by

Texting FLORALFRIDAYTEN to 70085 to donate £10


You can also add your #floralfriday photo to this story by e-mailing them to and we will add them into a new gallery during the day.
