churchtown flowers pickersThe Isles Of Scilly Steamship Company says that they’ve carried one of their largest ever consignments of flowers from Scilly, in time for St Valentine’s Day.

More than 1 million stems of yellow scented narcissi have been sent over to the mainland on the Gry Maritha.

Zoe Julian of Churchtown Farm on St Martin’s says that her business relies heavily on the cargo boat.

Her team will despatch around 3,000 gift boxes in the run-up to the 14th and Zoe says that amount of first class post could not be flown.
