Happy Anniversary!

Today is the 3rd Anniversary of the day we moved to our current premises in Horndean. A big thank you to all the customers who have supported us along the way – it has been a pleasure and we look forward to working with you in the coming months

Buriton Flower Festival

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.

Forthcoming Events

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

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.

Demonstration – Saturday 20th April 2013

Nursery Fresh were delighted to welcome Flower Arrangers to a demonstration by Liz Pelley entitled ‘Church Wedding Flowers’ at their premises in Horndean on Saturday afternoon. The idea behind the theme of the demonstration was to show arrangers new and innovative arrangements using traditional flowers and working within the tight constraints of Church wedding budgets. Whilst creating several arrangements from pew ends to pedestals, Liz also passed on money saving tips and ideas all of which she has gained from her years of church flower arranging. All those who attended commented on how much they had enjoyed the demonstration and left feeling inspired to re-create some of the arrangements in their own churches. A big thank you to Liz and all those who attended.
