We were recently delighted to supply flowers to one of our customers who was participating in the Harrogate Autum Show and even more delighted to learn that they received Best In Show in the individual class entitled Blooms & Berries. Many congratulations to Pauline Foster on her award and for trusting us to supply the plant material which was delivered to her by overnight courier.

I know that for most of us the thought of looking ahead to the winter months is not something we truly relish but with September a matter of days away it is time to give you some advance notice of the winter events we have planned.
Please see details of our forthcoming events by clicking on the links below – we look forward to seeing you all in the coming weeks and do enjoy what is left of the summer.
Apologies for the lack of posts recently but we are currently inundated with Summer weddings – from flower supply only for DIY Brides and Flower Arrangers to full wedding packages via our wedding section Bridal Flowers Direct
The pictures below show last week’s delivery direct from our suppliers in Holland followed by the inside of our cold store and some of the arrangements we created for the 10 weddings we supplied last weekend!
If you know of anyone who is planning a wedding or any other event in the coming months do put them in touch with us – whatever the level of help they require we are more than happy to help and remember our overnight courier service means we can send cut flowers to any location – home, venue or church – in mainland UK
This morning we received this lovely ‘thank you’ email from the officer on board HMS Diamond with whom we had liaised regarding their homecoming flowers last week.
Such a pleasure to know that our flowers were so well received -
I just wanted to say how much I appreciated the flowers you provided for HMS Diamond’s homecoming: they were absolutely fabulous! I know everybody who bought bouquets and roses were amazed at how beautiful they looked, and they were certainly appreciated by those in receipt of them on the jetty.
Thank you once again: I wish you an enjoyable and successful summer.”
Friday morning was an early start for Sally and Clare who were in Portsmouth dockyard at 7 a.m. with bouquets ordered by the Ship’s company of HMS Diamond. The Royal Navy’s Type 45 Destroyer was returning home following a six month deployment and we had to meet the boat transfer which then took the bouquets out to the Ship ready for presentation to their loved ones on disembarkation later in the day. The picture below shows some of the bouquets ordered
Later in the day we were delighted to sponsor the flowers for a ‘1940’s Evening Tea’ held at Wymering Manor
Wymering Manor is a Grade II Listed Historic Building – it is one of the oldest Manor Estates in the country and is the oldest existing house in Portsmouth built in 1581.
In January 2013 Wymering Manor Trust was given responsibility of the Manor by way of asset transfer from Portsmouth City Council. The Trust’s vision is to restore Wymering Manor to its former glory and to give it a new sustainable and vibrant future as a central part of the local community.
The music room, in which the ‘Evening Tea’ was held, forms part of the newer area of the house dating back to the Victorian era and has recently been redecorated and restored by local Funeral Directors, Lee Fletcher (Cosham).
Trust Event Organiser Karen Fletcher had approached Nursery Fresh and asked if we were willing to supply arrangements for the entrance hall and tea cup arrangements for the tables in keeping with the 1940’s theme of the event.
As you will see from the photos below the rooms looked stunning and a great time was had by all with entertainment provided by local singer Amy Baker
The success of the event was testament to the hard work of Karen and her team of volunteers and shows just what can be achieved when a community pulls together.
A lovely couple of testimonials we have received this week – always good to know how well received our flowers are
“Thank you so much for your help and reassurance. The flowers were received in excellent condition despite it being the hottest day of the year so far. I got so many plaudits from guests for the beauty of the arrangements but really all the praise was due to the quality, beauty and quantity of the blooms and very little to my artistic skill.
Thank you again. When I can find another occasion to do the flowers for I will certainly be back.”
“The flowers are here :) thank you so much they look super quality.
