Arena Flowers deliver flowers to Middlesbrough and its North Yorkshire surrounding areas, ensuring no time delays and a perfect decoration is unspoiled by the transportation.
Middlesbrough is in the ceremonial county of North Yorkshire. Did you know that the county flower for Yorkshire is not the white rose? The white rose is associated with Yorkshire thanks to the House of York, but Plantlife, a UK plant conservation charity, during its ‘County Flowers’ campaign in 2002 to select a plant species to each county or metropolitan area in the UK, chose campanula rotundifolia, commonly known as harebell, as the county flower for Yorkshire.
Middlesbrough is within touching distance of the North York Moors National Park, which spans 554 square miles and has traditionally been a fantastic breeding ground for flourishing wildflowers and arable plants.
However, over the last 50 years there has been a significant decline in wildflowers throughout the UK thanks to changing farming methods in the 1970s and 1980s, such as the use of fertilisers and pesticides. Of all the wildflowers in decline 60% of these are arable plants. Seven wildflowers have become extinct in this time whilst a further 54 are considered at risk.
The Cornfield Flowers Project, established in 1999, aims to reverse this affect by safeguarding the future of rare arable plants and wildflowers in and around the North York Moors. With the help of dedicated volunteers and local farmers the project collects seeds of these rare plants, before growing them remotely and returning them to the farmland. Seeds are also sent to the Millennium Seed Bank, an international conservation project set up by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. They store seeds of plants that are facing extinction so they can be frozen and stored for future use.
The scheme wants to raise awareness and educate people and raise awareness of the plight of arable flowers, such as Venus' looking-glass, Shepherd's needle, Prickly poppy, Corn buttercup, Corn marigold and large-flowered nettle and Red hemp-nettle, all of which were facing extinction on the North York Moors.
In summer you can see some of these flowers and plants at the Ryedale Folk Museum in Hutton-le-Hole. The museum helps raise awareness of the plight to save these wildflowers by housing a nursery bed and a demonstration field, giving a rare opportunity to see some of the declining plants, such as the Corn buttercup and the Shepherd’s-needle – two of the UK’s most endangered plants.
Arena Flowers’ has an extensive portfolio to choose from should you be inspired by some of North Yorkshire’s native wildflowers, and we can tailor all our packages to your specific budget.
