‘A little bit about us’ ………

We are often asked ‘who we are’ and ‘what we do’ so to avoid any confusion here it is in a nut shell.

Nursery Fresh Wholesale Flowers is, as the name suggests, a privately run and owned wholesale flower company based in Horndean on the outskirts of Portsmouth. Our location just off the A3(M) enables us to be easily accessed by anyone living or running a business in the Hampshire, Surrey, Berkshire and West Sussex border areas.

Our team are extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the flower industry but most importantly we care about our customers and stand by the quality of our flowers. We do not believe in ‘stock piling’ flowers so whilst we keep our cold store stocked with day to day essentials we prefer to discuss your orders with you and place them directly with our suppliers in Holland. In essence, you let us know what you need and we will buy it in for you, ensuring all the plant material you order will be of the highest and freshest quality.

If you live further afield then why not take advantage of our overnight courier service which enables us to send flowers to any address within mainland UK. If you are organising an event at a location away from where you normally live or work the flowers can be sent directly to the venue.

The other part of our business is our dedicated bridal and event section – Bridal Flowers Direct. This is a service we have set up which runs alongside the wholesale flower section and enables us to work with Brides and event organisers to supply flowers on either a cut flower only basis or a full design and supply service for those who need additional help and guidance from our experienced floristry team.

Fur further details please visit our ‘Bridal Flowers Direct’ website

So basically for whatever reason you may need flowers, from Florists and Flower Arrangers to Brides and Event Organisers we can supply you with flowers of the highest quality and service second to none.

If you wish to discuss any aspect of our service please give us a call on 023 9259 1422 – we look forward to hearing from you

Christmas Workshops

We are now feeling well and truly festive having held two of our Christmas workshops. Today and last Thursday the groups created beautiful arrangements under the guidance of our principle floral designer Rebecca Warwick. For their first design the ladies filled a willow basket with a succulent plant, silver Eryngium, moss and stunning white Amaryllis to create a beautiful table arrangement whilst for the second design a florette was decorated with white Carnations and spray Carnations, Noble Fir, Pine Cones and other Christmas decorations of their choosing. This design could either be made as a table centrepiece or for hanging from a door. As you can see from the photographs below a great time was had by all those who attended

Busy, Busy

Our feet have hardly touched the ground in the past two weeks as we begin the lead up to Christmas.

On Saturday 15th November we once again welcomed NAFAS Demonstrator Gill Smaggasgale for a Winter Demonstration entitled ‘Have You Ever Stopped to Wonder’ which started with Gill reciting the first verse of a Christmas  Carol she wrote as a child for a Blue Peter Christmas Carol competition. Gill delighted everyone with displays all with a Christmas theme interspersed with ‘Stocking Fillers’ of individual arrangements which gave everyone inspiration for their own Christmas decorations. The demonstration ended with the remainder of the Christmas Carol and raffling off of all the arrangements in aid of Rowan’s Hospice for which we raised an amazing £90.

Last Saturday was our Bridal Flower Open Day which was attended by in excess of 50 Brides / Grooms and their families. We were inundated with enquiries and now have a busy few weeks compiling quotes and meeting with couples who booked appointments for consultations with us. It was lovely to see so many people and we were also delighted to be joined by local companies Eliza Mabel, Queen Bees Treats, Carro’s Cakes, Hana Venn Photography and Quaint and Quirky Event Hire who all loved being part of the day.

Next on the event schedule are our Christmas Open House mornings which take place on Saturday 29th November and Monday 1st December from 10.00 a.m. – 1.00 p.m. Do join us for a coffee and a mince pie and a chance to view our range of Christmas sundries. We also now have in stock bags of Spagnum Moss, Noble Fir Bundles and 12″ Noble Fir Wreath Frames.

We do also still have some places left on our Christmas Workshops which take place on Thursday 11th December and Tuesday 16th December from 10.00 – 12.30. These Workshops are always great fun and enjoyed by all those who attend. Please contact us for further details.

Unbelievably Christmas is now only a month away so do let us have your Christmas flower orders and we will look forward to seeing you all in the coming weeks
