Sending a get well soon gift or to simply say thank you?
Our mini-posy box contains the sweetest selection of aromatic and seasonal floral ingredients.
Find a fun container, mug or jar, fill with water and place your Botanical posy in your favourite spot to enjoy its beautiful, lasting scent.
To display your Botanical Posy, we recommend our customer favourite 'Little Fish' Vase!
'Colourful' or 'Natural' ?
Our Colourful Botanical Boxes are made up of a beautiful selection of brightly coloured mixed stems. This posy is full of fun, so it’s perfect to send to an outgoing personality or as a gift to brighten someone’s day.
Our Natural selection is made up of mainly white, green and natural tones, occasionally we’ll add some very pale accents. Choose this if you are unsure if someone loves colour or if you are mindful of sending flowers that will tone with a specific interior. This box is better suited to quieter occasions.
What’s in the posy box?
Every posy contains scented herbs that change with the season. We use dried Lavender all year round and we pair this with a focal herb to create a delicious base scent. So, your posy is not just a pretty selection of little flowers and foliage but smells beautiful too.
Autumn’s focal herb is: Rosemary
The flower content will always change month on month. We include different seasonal accent flowers in both the 'Colourful' and 'Natural’ boxes. Increasingly our more unusual flowers and seed heads along with our base herbs are grown on the FlowerBe Flower Farm. These are included when seasonally available.
Autumn’s focal flower is: Santini Malibu
Making it personal:
Caring for a letterbox posy on arrival
This is a simple gesture to send or treat to yourself. So, with this in mind, we have made preparing and caring for the flowers very simple and easy to understand. You do not have to be an expert arranger to enjoy this creative experience.
Just remember you have ordered a micro-posy which stands at around 15cm tall once the stems are cut. This cutie fits into something small - a special container, mug, glass or jar. It’s designed to lift spirits and the fun is adding an individual stamp with the container you choose!
Unlike larger flower deliveries no flower food is needed, and no specialist vases are required. The life span of our posy is between 10-20 days in the vase.
The botanical posy is suitable for drying. Once the flowers are spent and, to enjoy your posy for longer, simply tie the stems with twine and hang on a hook in a warm dry place.
You may recognise some of the ingredients as edible herbs. Please do not cook or eat these stems. The botanical posy is designed for decorative purposes only.
Arranging your FlowerBe Botanical Posy
BEFORE YOU ARRANGE YOUR POSY
So many of our customers choose to pair their Posy with our perfectly shaped Leaf Botanical Vase. Or choose your own favourite container. This could be a mug, jam jar or a spent candle glass. Always ensure your vase is clean. To prepare your flowers, simply snip the ends off the stems at a 45 degree angle before arranging. No flower food needed!
The seasonal ingredients of our botanical posies tend to change weekly and we often include a range of different seasonal stems. This means that no posy you send or receive will be the same. You can however categorise your flowers as each stem has a purpose in the overall design.
STAR: Cornflower, Craspedia, Ornithogalum, Dianthus
SUPPORT: Narcissus, Scabious seedhead, Statice Limonium
FILLER: Limonium, Waxflower, Chrysanthemum, Stallion, Mint
FOLIAGE: Rosemary, Pittosporum, Eucalyptus
Begin your arrangement by placing your Filler stems and Foliage stems evenly throughout your vase. Add your Support stems in the empty spaces to add texture and colour to your arrangement.
Finish off by placing your Star flower, which will hold its position with the help of your other stems. Adjust your arrangement by gently pulling your stems into place to create your overall outline shape.

I sent the Original Botanical Letterbox Posy to a friend who had been bereaved and it was the perfect thing for her. She loved it, thank you!
