An early morning drive along a beautifully sunny London Embankment for Sally this morning to deliver the flowers, foliage and plants Nursery Fresh are delighted to have supplied to the team from the Northern Ireland Group of Flower Arrangement Societies (NIGFAS).
Every year the National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies (NAFAS) invites an area to stage a floral exhibit at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and this year it is the turn of NIGFAS to represent the Association.
The Northern Ireland team led by Mary Pearson will be staging their 20 foot display entitled “A Green Thought in a Green Shade” in the Grand Pavilion at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
If you are planning to visit the Chelsea Flower Show this year do visit the exhibit which we are sure will be stunning.
Good luck from all of us at Nursery Fresh to Mary and the team

As promised we are delighted to announce details of our forthcoming programme of events some or all of which we hope you will be able to attend.
We are delighted to have booked NAFAS Demonstrator Irene Hickson for our Christmas Demonstration and whilst Irene is playing her cards very close to her chest regarding the displays she will be creating “Festive Fantasy” is certainly an intriguing theme.
Tickets for Demonstrations we have held during the past year have sold out rapidly so do book up as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
Our pre-Christmas workshops proved very popular and incredible fun last year so whatever your experience of Flower Arranging do try and attend one of these – if either of these dates are not suitable for you why not try and get a group of friends together and we can tailor make a workshop for you.
We look forward to seeing you all in the coming weeks
Nursery Fresh were delighted to supply the flowers for the Flower Festival held at St Marys Church, Buriton, Near Petersfield. With the theme based around Harvest Festival the Church was filled with stunning arrangements combining flowers, fruit and vegetables.
Flower Festival Designer and Organiser Margaret Davis was thrilled with all the flowers and complimented Nursery Fresh on the quality and subsequent longevity of them all.

John Waddington, the Sales and Marketing Director of Nursery Fresh Ltd, met Valerie Davidson, the ‘Chelsea 2013’ SAFAS team leader/designer and her team, at 7am this morning.
Sally Waddington, Clare Dridge and Rebecca Warwick, of Nursery Fresh, spent yesterday checking and sorting the flowers for this very special order, which Nursery Fresh were honoured to have been asked to supply.
John was able to drive the truck directly into Chelsea’s Grand Pavilion where Valerie and her team were ready and waiting to start work.
Thank you Valerie, for putting your trust in Nursery Fresh and “Good Luck” from us all
