HAPPY EASTER

It has been an exceptionally busy week at Nursery Fresh – it has been lovely seeing so many Flower Arrangers from our local Cathedrals and Churches coming in to buy their Easter flowers from us. We have also dispatched several orders for churches further afield via our overnight delivery service.

We wish you all a very happy Easter and look forward to seeing you all again in the coming months  – fingers crossed for a busy wedding season too

 

From Weddings to Type 45 Destroyers – Nursery Fresh’s flowers continue to delight

Apologies for the lack of posts in recent weeks but our feet have hardly touched the ground during the Summer.

We have supplied flowers to a record number of Brides and Flower Arrangers this year both locally and nationally via our overnight courier service and are already taking bookings for 2014 and 2015. Judging by the Testimonials we have received, similar to this one, we certainly seem to be ‘getting it right’

 Hi Sally

Flowers arrived before 9am this morning – the hydrangeas in particular are stunning – so pleased!
Thank you! Carol

Yesterday we were delighted to supply the flowers for the commissioning ceremony in Portsmouth Dockyard of the Royal Navy’s newest destroyer HMS Duncan. Having previously supplied presentation bouquets for the homecomings of her sister ships HMS Dauntless & HMS Diamond it was a privilege to be involved in this special event.

We are currently in the process of finalising our Christmas Programme of events and will post the details on the website in the coming days but can already announce we are to hold another of our popular Bridal Flower Open Days on Saturday 23rd November (see Events page for full details or visit our dedicated Bridal Flower site www.bridalflowersdirect.com) for full details. If you know anyone who is planning a wedding in the coming months do please let them know.
