Which Engagement Rose Petals are for me?

Our real flower petals are natural and totally biodegradable. That is to say, they will simply fade away like blossom, and not leave behind any litter. As a result, they are a wonderful, eco-friendly choice for decorations and grand gestures alike.

We recommend our Small Natural Rose Petals. They are freeze dried petals, so, they have retained their beautiful natural shape and colour. These rose petals measure between 1.5 – 4cm wide by 2 – 4cm high. size. Consequently, you get great coverage if you are scattering across a large area.  Alternatively, you will find that you can create quite a few decorations from just one bag.

How many engagement rose petals do I need?

We are the UK’s original confetti farmers; so we know a thing or two about petals! Most importantly, we are on hand to help you plan your romantic gesture. It can be difficult to work out how many petals you might need to decorate a pathway through your garden, for instance. But we have plenty of experience and are very happy to help you work it all out. Just get in touch with your ideas and we can help you with the calculations.

Our petals are sold in a 10 Handful Bag – this is enough to give you 10 closed handfuls of rose petals. It is 1 pint volume of petals. We measure it out with a kitchen jug. (Or perhaps it’s easier to visualise a pint glass?!) If you are looking at covering a bigger area these photos should help you assess how densely the large petals will cover the ground.
