June in Bloom at Mires Beck
June in Bloom is a family fun weekend at Mires Beck Nursery.
There are lots of amazing activities for the whole family to take part in, such as our tombola with lots of amazing prizes to suit everyone.
Flower arranging demonstrations with Gill from Lavender and Pinks. Gill creates bespoke wedding flowers, and all her flowers are home grown in Yorkshire.
Wood Carving Demonstrations with Allen Stichler, who specialises in unique hand-carved wood sculptures.
Woodland Walk in our 4-acre wood, there are children's activity booklets for them to take part in while on the walk, and prizes once they have completed it! The wood is pushchair and wheelchair accessible.
Children's Clay Making is on the Sunday, children are welcome to make different animals or leaves out of our air-dry clay and take them home!
Children's Seed Planting, we are offering children the opportunity to plant seeds and learn about how plants grow and what they need to survive.
We have also got a wide variety of caterers. We've got a pizza van on the Saturday, and an ice cream van for the weekend. Our café will be open as well for tea and cakes or afternoon tea, and many more food stalls.
Our garden centre has got great plant offers on. For the weekend only! We specialise in Hardy Perennials, Herbs, Wildflowers, Shrubs and Phragmites.
Throughout the weekend we have got local bands playing live for us.
This is the first year we have requested a local business to support this event. JZ flowers is our main sponsor!
We have chosen JZ Flowers as our neighbouring floral business because we value their commitment to growing British native species, as we do so as well. We are delighted to be working with a company that supports fair trade, and someone bringing employment opportunities in the East Riding area.
JZ Flowers is a family-business and a leading producer of floral bouquets for UK and global retailers. Their founder Jelle Zwemstra started as a ‘Flying Dutchman’, bringing trolley loads of flowers and plants straight from the famous auction in Aalsmeer, Holland, to sell to florists in the Yorkshire region. But in the late 1990’s, Jelle decided to instead focus on supermarkets, believing in their potential to sell flowers on a large scale and set up a packhouse in Hull to service them.
Since then, and with their headquarters located in Newport, near Hull, the business has bloomed into a vibrant and growing organisation with established operations now in Holland, Ireland, Miami and Turkey.
The company is a proud and trusted supporter of Fairtrade. Between 2018 and 2020, the company sourced over 73 million stems generating over 665,000 euros in Fairtrade premium which is paid back to workers across Kenya, Ethiopia, Sri Lanka and Tanzania. Last year, they sourced over 25 million Fairtrade stems from over 21 Fairtrade farms.
JZ Flowers has a heavy focus on British and Irish Grown Flowers and they have offices embedded within the growing communities in both Spalding, Lincolnshire, and in Ireland, so that they can continue to build on the excellent relationships they hold with their local growers.
JZ Flowers has been founded on a commitment to design, innovation, and quality, but they have developed and grown to become a market leader and champion sustainable, ethically sourced flowers on an industrial, global scale.
