British tulip season begins as flowers land in UK supermarkets

British tulip time has begun, as Co-op becomes the first supermarket this season to launch the UK-grown blooms to help brighten-up our homes as we head into darker months.

Grown in Lincolnshire, the sale of British tulips forms part of Co-op’s ongoing commitment to work closely with and support British growers and farmers. Co-op is also a signatory to the National Farmers Union (NFU) plants and flowers pledge.

Co-op’s Horticulture Technical Manager, Gemma Gray said: “Co-op works closely with its farmers and growers all year round, building long term relationships and supporting suppliers throughout the seasons.

"We are very excited to lead the way with British tulips this season – we are confident that customers will love them,

"I believe that the flowers provide a sense that brighter days are just around the corner, and I am delighted that high quality and much loved British tulips are now available in Co-op stores in communities across the UK.”
