UK supermarket Morrisons sells wonky flowers to ensure “heat struck” flowers are not wasted

Wonky vegetables have made a welcome stand on shop floors throughout the UK, and now wonky flowers are making their mark in shops too.

Bouquets made up of flowers that wouldn’t usually make the cut because they don’t look completely perfect are now being sold at UK supermarket chain, Morrisons.

Wonky bouquets are a more budget-friendly way to get some flowers into your home and spruce up your interiors.

With heatwaves occurring across the UK, the hot weather and dry conditions have stopped some flowers from developing properly. Morrisons have decided to put these flowers to use and not let them go to waste by selling the wonky bouquets in its stores.

The first wonky bouquet will be made up of British sunflowers and statice, whose stems are shorter because of the lack of rain.

A wonky bouquet costs £3, while a regular bouquet costs £5.
