Proudly we present to you: Safari Garden‘s newest boxes. Safari Garden is a grower collective from Kenya. For the past year, we have been working together to give you access to mixed flower and foliage boxes straight from the grower in Kenya. With plastic-free packaging and beautiful mixed boxes for all types of floristry, Safari Garden will be your new favourite grower…
The Big Seasonal Box
The Big Seasonal Box is as it says on the tin. A bigger box… longer stems… more seasonal sensations and a little bit of all the colours for everyone! We love this box because it can be for anything. Anyone wanting big bright and beautiful bouquets? This box contains 230 stems of Roses, Lepidium, Hypericum, Sunflowers, Alstroemeria, seasonal flowers and foliage. This box can be used on its own or to with other beautiful flowers, feathers, fillers, frills and foliages… Click here to see exactly what’s in the box.
The Little Seasonal Box
The Little Seasonal Selection will change through the year, but there will be an element of consistency so you know roughly what to expect! With a few trusty favourites, such as: Hypericum, for that lovely berry texture and bouquet bulk; a few Roses – I mean why wouldn’t we (?!); and of course the wild and wonderful Lepidium. We hope you will have fun making and creating with this box!
Again, there are two boxes available in this range: The Sorbet and The Sunset. These two names are because Kenyan days need a taste of a refreshing cool sorbet (these are the whites, creams, pinks), and the Kenyan evenings are made by their Sunsets (Glowing yellows, oranges, reds and a touch of cerise!).

The Essentials Box
The Essentials Box comes in a Vibrant version and a Pastel version. These are the essentials for any shop or event… Perfect for posies, hat boxes or little table vases, these stems are 50cm in length. With 140 stems in the box – a mixture of Roses, Alstroemeria, Spray Carnations and other fillers, these are long-lasting flowers, directly from the farm. They are the perfect base for you to add seasonal flowers too and brighten up any day or display. There are two versions of this box – the Pastel Colours: Whites, Creams and Pinks and the Vibrant Colours: Yellows, Oranges and Reds… and maybe a touch of Cerise!

The Classic Shop Box
The Classic Shop Box is a variation on the one you might have ordered last year. With some of the varieties having been uprooted we took the chance to rethink and add a few more favourites, and especially Lepidium! This box is designed to be a mixture of classic items – a one-stop-shop (box)! With the addition of Alstroemerias and some exciting summer flowers, we hope that this could become an easy and efficient staple for your orders. In this Classic Shop Box you will get 230 stems of treasures as listed here, pre-stripped and ready to go (after an overnight drink of water).
The Spray Carnation Box
240 stems of Spray Carnations… a minimum of 6 colours per box, but with the likelihood of 6-10 different varieties, you are set for everything. These Spray Carnations might be at a slightly tighter cut stage than you are used to, as they have come directly from the farm, but this will mean they also last longer in the vase. It’s a Win-Win.

Whether you’re a retail shop or an event and wedding, there’s a Safari Garden box for everyone. You will find their boxes on our Pre-order (first available delivery date September 29th). Please note that the new cut-off is Monday (10 pm) the week before for delivery on Tuesday (or Wednesday – depending on your delivery area).
