Local Florists

Greens Florist

137 Jamaica Rd, London SE16 4SH, UK – 020 7237 6392

Sadly needed to use Greens florist to Oder funeral flowers for my late dad's funeral. Nancy made the experience very easy, for all the family, she was very helpful & showed us samples of work she was working on for another funeral to give us ideas how the flowers would look, rather than just going through books - this made it easier for my mum as she has problems with her eyesight & could see clearly what she was ordering. When the sad day arrived we were stunned with Nancy's work as all floral tributes were of outstanding quality, not just our flowers, but all of those sent from other people via Greens were wonderful. Would definitely use Greens & Nancy again, but hopefully for a happier occasion.

Pleasant, great service, fair prices, added a little extra at no cost to make my day.

McQueens Flower Shop

229 Cambridge Heath Rd, London E2 0EL, UK – 020 7251 5505

VERY PROFESSIONAL. After dealing with a number of hit-and-miss florists over the years, I was recommended McQueens. I have used them a few times. They have high standards and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

These Florists are exceptionally talented. Flower selection daily is exquisite. Staff are all very welcoming and helpful

Aflorum - Florist

36 Caledonian Rd, Kings Cross, London N1 9DT, UK – 020 7837 4000

I went in with a vague understanding of the kind of flowers that my girlfriend likes and they put together a bouquet for me. She was very happy with her birthday present! I would absolutely come back here again.

Sandra at Aflorum was amazing to work with in the lead up to my wedding at the nearby Kings Place. She was happy to work to a budget and chose really stunning flowers based on the sorts of colours I liked and the time of year. She has real creative flair and I was able to entrust all the details to her. The end outcome on the day far exceeded my expectations and we got really lovely feedback from guests. Thank you Aflorum!

Tips - Caring for your flowers once they are delivered

Placing your flowers in vase half to two thirds full with lukewarm water, will help closed buds to start opening.

  • Be careful when un-wrapping a hand-tied bouquet as it is delivered in a water bubble to keep the flowers fresh.
  • Arranging your flowers in cold water should be avoided as this can reduce the their life in the vase.
  • Avoid puting flowers in metal or aluminium containers - glass is ideal. Keep your flowers in a cool location, away from draughts, direct heat or sunlight. Arrange once unwrapped
  • Your flowers may take up to 24 hours after being placed in water to reach their full potential.
  • Strip off all excess foliage and leaves below the water level to reduce any harmful bacteria within the water.
  • Bacteria can block the stem and stop the flowers taking up the water.unwrap. Flowers like their stems trimmed. So, trim them, at an angle with a knife (rather than scissors) by an inch or so. When trimming stems, always cut at an angle of roughly 45degrees; this increases the surface area allowing your flowers to absorb more water.
  • If a Rose starts to droop at the head, re-cut the stem, wrap the head in paper to support it upright and plunge 5cms of the stem into boiling water for about 30seconds. Cut the stem again and place in deep cold water for two hours.trim

Most orders are accompanied by a sachet of cut flower food which will encourage buds to open and help to prolong the life and beauty of your flowers. Top up regularly with water and flower food, removing any fading flowers. Ensure the floristry foam used in arrangements is moist and topped up daily; this helps to prolong the life and vibrancy of your arrangements.
