One of our long term goals here at Bloombox Co is to source all our flowers and botanicals from local growers, The wonderful thing about living in Australia is that our varied climate, from warm tropics to chilly mountains means that we have access to a huge variety of botanicals all year round. This week we're celebrating Aussie grown botanical diversity! We've got your traditional natives sorted with a stunning protea and fragrant eucalyptus, and we've got the MOST AMAZING bunch of chubby pink double tulips grown in Victoria.
