Win: A preserved bouquet from Shida - worth £49

The Bury St Edmunds company is giving Velvet readers the chance to win a beautiful hand-tied bouquet of preserved flowers

A vase of cut flowers is usually a thing of fleeting beauty. Unless, that is, they come from Shida, the preserved bloom brand based in Bury St Edmunds.

Taking its name from the Japanese for fern, Shida was born from the founder Katherine Whitchurch’s desire to make bringing nature inside easy, via longer-lasting and maintenance-free floral displays. Picking real flowers and foliage at their peak, experts replace the sap with 100% plant-based glycerine, maintaining their form, colour and texture for months.

To mark the launch of Shida’s summer collection, we’ve got a hand-tied bouquet to give away - worth £49. Called Bobbi, the bouquet stars the team’s favourite flower, the hydrangea, offset with pretty glixia, fragrant lavender and lush foliage.

For your chance to win, simply email your name, address and daytime number to alice.ryan@velvetmag.co.uk, titling your message ‘Shida Competition’. Entries should arrive no later than May 21 and the usual Ts and Cs apply; if you’re happy to be contacted by Iliffe Media and its partners, add ‘Please Contact’.
