Come and get some flowers for Christmas! We can deliver, or you can visit our beautiful shop in Sicilian Avenue and choose grom a wonderful selection – we will have berries, blue pine, roses, amaryllis, lilies and coloured birch twigs to add sparkle. Whatever your colour scheme this year, we can design a beautiful bouquet for you.
We have lots of Secret Santa plants to choose from, and we supply Christmas displays for your office reception desk or Christmas parties.
We’ve been dressing the shop window with some lovely Christmas lights and wreaths. The spathphyllum (peace lilies), with their white flowers and dark green leaves look pretty, nestled amongst a variety of succulents, cactuses and hanging plants.
Part of the fun of Christmas is the planning – the menu, the colour scheme, the style and the flowers. We look forward to helping you create a perfect Christmas!

Christmas falls on Tuesday this year. You can buy your flowers on the Friday before, and choose long-lasting lilies, orchids, amaryllis, berries and pine. We can also make you a table centre display, with our without a candle. If you keep the flowers watered, and change the water in vases every other day, your flowers will last well.
We’re giving a wreath making class at ITV next week. We’ll be giving a demo while the ITV staff enjoy a glass of wine.They will then make their own wreath to take home.
If you want to make your own wreath,
You’ll need a wire frame, some moss, string for binding, blue pine and other foliage for the base. You can then decorate with pine cones, berries, bows and sparkly twigs. You can hang the wreath on your door, or use it as a table centre with a big candle in the centre.
Spray mist the wreath to moisten the moss and keep the foliage fresh.

Now is the time to get some Christmas shopping done!
We are taking orders for delivery in Holborn and central London, and we deliver bouquets and plants.
If you need to collect a gift that you won’t be giving away for a few days, one of our Christmas table displays or a green plant are the perfect solution.
There has been a huge rise in plant sales this year – everyone is going green!
As far as cut flowers go, the traditional red and green is not sought after. People want their favourite flowers with a touch of sparkle added!
Ilex (holly) and amaryllis are still popular. It’s such fun to see the beautiful amaryllis flowers open! They are long-lasting, and a great tip is to push a stick into the stem cavity so that the heavy flowers in full bloom don’t break the stem.
Call us on 07932 052411 and we will take care of all your orders!

Flowers for events in central London


We’ve had a very busy week, full of flowers for events in central London.
When it comes to choosing a venue for your event in London, you’re spoilt for choice! From smart London hotels to blank warehouse spaces, it’s all here.
One of the events, for a US online games company, was hosted at the Corinthia Hotel on Whitehall Place, in the magnificent ballroom. The flowers were all white and green – hydrangea, roses,
Lilies and lisianthus. Very smart, and rhe green of the hydrangea was luminous.
Another event had these lovely deep reds, made with roses, chrysanths, sedum, black callas and love-lies-bleeding, (amaranthus).
Using the right colour palette can really reinforce your brand, so it’s important to get the advice of a good florist to see what’s available.
Another project is wedding flowers in white and blush. Blush roses, ( palest pink) are very popular this year.
We are constantly finding that brides to be are researching wedding flowers on websites that don’t clearly state whether the flowers in the image are real or artificial, and what time of year they are available. This causes disappointment when they realise they can’t have what they’ve fallen in love with in an image.
It really is advisable to speak to a good florist. Most florists will gove you a free consultation, and that is well worth doing.
We cover all of central London for flowers for events, and although the shop is closed at weekends, we still take on bespoke events.
We also grow scented foliage to give the flowers a natural, organic feel and obviously they smell gorgeous! We use three types of mint, myrtle, lavender and rosemary – all organically grown by us!
