Nursery Fresh is delighted to have once again worked with Jane Rickard and the flower arrangers of Surrey NAFAS in supplying the flowers for ‘Florimania’ at Hampton court Palace this weekend.
This year’s event entitled “Ladies with Flowers” will include floral displays and flower arranging demonstrations inspired by some of the most notable garden-loving Queens from Queen Mary II and her collection of exotic plants at Hampton Court Palace to Queen Charlotte at Kew Gardens.
Below are a few photos taken during the flowers sorting and delivery stages and we hope to post photos of the finished results soon.
Following our delivery of all the plant material earlier in the week it was lovely to receive the following email from Jane Rickard
“Just to say a big thank you for the simply gorgeous selection of flowers that you delivered to us today. Really fabulous and as well organised as usual.
It is always a pleasure to work with you all.
On Saturday afternoon we were delighted to welcome Dee Watkins, a lecturer in Floristry at Highbury College to our premises to give a demonstration entitled ‘Christmas at Home’. Dee showed us how to make an array of arrangements suitable for any home over the Festive season and inspired us with her innovative designs based around natural and recycled materials. At the end of the Demonstration all the displays were raffled in aid of Rowans Hospice
We are delighted to announce details of the following events which will take place at our premises in Horndean during November and December
Tickets for these events generally sell quite quickly so if you wish to attend please book your place as soon as possible
What beautiful weather for last weekend’s couples – fingers crossed it is a sign of things to come for the rest of the Summer. On Saturday we made our first trip to the Elvetham Hotel, near Fleet in Hampshire – a very stately 19th century mansion set in beautifully landscaped gardens. Whilst the ceremony took place […]

Little did we know when we were asked to supply flowers to one of our customers in Stratford that her arrangement would appear in the national press as it was paraded through the streets of the city as part of the celebrations to mark the 400th Anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare last weekend.
We can supply flowers to virtually any location in mainland UK via our overnight courier service so if you need flowers for any occasion please do get in touch to discuss your specific requirements

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
This morning we were delighted to be joined by a group of ladies who had requested one of our tailor made workshops.
Under the direction of Clare the group learnt how to put together a hand tied bouquet of mixed flowers and also a small posy which would be suitable for use as a Bridesmaid bouquet at a wedding.
As you will see from the photographs below, a great time was had by all and the group have already requested another workshop in a few months time.
If you and a group of friends (minimum group of 4 people) would like to get together for your own workshop please do let us know.
