The Flower Shop style is very much focused on the natural look. There is no better creator in our opinion than Mother Nature herself and the idea of wanting to colour or alter a flower seems odd to us, you can't really improve on natural perfection. Having said that, of course there will often be times when we are asked to construct something that may not show the flowers in their original state and there are natural dyes and techniques such as reflexing which enhance the natural beauty of the flowers but, as a rule, we do prefer that just picked or still growing look. One of the other must haves in all our arrangements is scent - this is one of things that makes fresh flowers so special, they are a real feast for the senses. So do let us know when you order if you don't want to be overcome by fragrance when you receive your flowers.
All of our flowers are bought directly from growers in the UK and abroad. We do not hold stock so cannot offer a same day service for orders. When we first started the business back in 2011, we did for a couple of years have a fridge full of flowers but even with the flowers in cold storage, they have already been cut and transported and have a limited life. With our bespoke system, all of our flowers are delivered to order. That is to say we know what our customers want before we order the flowers. Very often the flowers have been picked just hours before and, thanks to the excellent growers and transport links available to us, the flowers arrive in pristine condition. By the time they reach our customers, they have been a cut flower for as little time as is possible and will therefore have a longer vase life. The quality and perfection of our flowers as well as their longevity is one of the things that is most often commented on by our customers and something we are very proud of.
We are limited to ordering flowers in bulk of course so a one off bouquet or basket of flowers may not be possible if we don't have additional orders that week for weddings, funerals or seasonal work, such as Valentine's Day or Mother's Day. But, should we not be able to help you with a one off or same day order, we are happy to recommend one of our partner florists to provide these for you. We can even organise this for you and can guarantee that the flowers and service will be of the same high standard as our own.
