The national volunteer-run Flowers from the Farm group is making its first appearance at the show, which starts on May 22.

And flowers growers from Norfolk and Suffolk are involved including Moat Farm Flowers, Hillcrest Flower Garden, Gabriel’s Garden, and Forever Green Flower Farm.

The transport will also include flowers from Sarah Hammond, of Knapton-based English Peonies, who said: “The transport will include a selection of seasonal flowers grown in the region.

“Flowers from the Farm promotes the use of seasonal, British-grown flowers, which account for only about 15pc of cut flowers bought by consumers in the UK, in a market worth around 2.2 billion pounds per year.“
