The Delphinium Flower Fields 2013

It's that time of year again! Its a magical sight to behold - stripes of colourful delphiniums in the fields at Wick, near Pershore, in Worcestershire.

Grown for their pretty petals, the flowers are harvested by hand and dried naturally to create beautiful, natural and biodegradable wedding confetti.

Petals are sold by the pint! 1 pint is 10 handfuls and costs £11

Charles Hudson established The Real Flower Petal Confetti Co in 1997 after he saw petals fall from the bouquet he was carrying for his wife - such pretty and natural confetti - perfect for weddings! His farming estate was the first in the world to produce delphinium confetti and he has since provided petals for tens of thousands of Brides & Grooms, celebrities, Royalty, films, T.V. and many other occasions!

Visitors are welcome to view the field from now until the early August - for more information please see the map on our Facebook page. 

The first signs of colour appeared in early July this year - later than usual!
