21 Jan Happy New Year!
So, the start to another year and we have already taken out the fresh bulbs that we installed everywhere after the massive Christmas clear out. Of course, we will be using spring bulbs a lot right through the season so do make sure you pop in and take a look at the selection we always have on offer. A scented hyacinth bulb brings joy to even the most untidy workspace!
Tulips are back in season and there are always new varieties to look out for, we love the parrot tulips especially whose petals are slightly ragged and twisted due to a natural virus bred into the bulbs. Ranunculas too are a classic spring flower and come in a myriad of colours with their delicately layered petals so reminiscent of a ballet tutu…
Of course the next date in the floral diary is Valentine’s Day and our regular customers will know that we broke with the antiquated tradition of selling red roses at Valentine’s Day about 20 years ago; instead, we offer a bespoke bouquet designed freshly each year to a theme especially for Valentine’s Day. This year is no exception and we have named the bouquet the ‘Vanilla Pink’!
The ‘Vanilla Pink’ is a hand-tied arrangement and made up with a pretty and stylish combination of cream and pink seasonal flowers chosen from roses, spray roses, astrantia, tulips, and bouvardia together with seasonal foliage including rosemary for extra scent and texture. This most romantic of bouquets is presented in water, in our signature, tissue-lined box.
In our continued support, whenever possible, for British grown flowers and foliage, the ‘Vanilla Pink’ will also feature the scented narcissi ‘Erlicheer’ that have a wonderful vanilla scent. These narcissi are grown on the Isles of Scilly and delivered directly to our shop to ensure quality and freshness.
To order the ‘Vanilla Pink’ for the love in your life, simply call us on 020 7242 2840. We guarantee delivery on 14th February as long as your order is placed before 5.00pm 12th February. The ‘Vanilla Pink’ starts @ £65.00 which excludes delivery. #noredroses
Bring on the love!!!
