Christmas Flowers

If you are still struggling with Christmas gift ideas for family or friends why not order a fresh flower bouquet or table centrepiece from us. With bouquets starting from £25 and table arrangements from £30 they make an ideal gift. Local delivery is included in the cost and if you need the gift to reach further afield, bouquets can be sent via overnight courier for an additional £10. Please call us on 023 9259 1422 to discuss your specific requirements (varying colour choices available).

If you wish to be more creative we can supply all the flowers, foliage and sundry items you may need to make your own Christmas displays (either locally or nationally) so do either pop in or call us to place your order ready for collection on the day of your choosing.

FLOWER WORKSHOP & CHRISTMAS SUNDRIES

On Tuesday afternoon we welcomed a group of ladies to the warehouse who had requested a tailor made workshop. The group, who have previously named themselves ‘The Flower Fairies,’ were shown how to make a front facing modern hand tied arrangement with an autumnal theme, a corsage and finally Clare demonstrated how to feather a carnation.

Tailor made workshops can be organised for a minimum of 4 people and can generally cover any theme of your choice. If you are interested in arranging your own workshop do get in touch.

We now have our Christmas sundries on display so do come in and take a look. From pine cones and cinnamon sticks to birch and ting ting we have a wide selection of products ideally suited for creating Christmas arrangements

DIY Wedding Flowers

A lovely email to share with you from a customer who picked up an order from us last week for her son’s wedding. Whilst we had been asked to supply the Bridal Party Arrangements, the Groom’s Mother wished to create the church and marquee arrangements herself.

Dear Sally,

Very many thanks for supplying such amazing flowers for us. Sarah was absolutely thrilled with the bouquets, you got them just right.

I’ve attached a few photos of the end result, I was quite proud of myself!

Thank you, Tessa.

 

The pictures below show just what can be created using flowers supplied by us.

Chidham Church Flower Festival

Yesterday morning we were delighted to welcome Nina Bates and her team of helpers from Chidham Church to sort the flowers for their Flower Festival. Over the past few weeks we have been working with Nina on her flower order which we then purchased directly from our suppliers in Holland. To save time on their set up day, it was decided that a small team would come over to our warehouse so they could sort the flowers into individual orders. We then delivered the flowers directly to the Church this morning.

The Flower Festival, entitled “Magna Carta – The Flowering of Democracy,” takes place at St Mary’s Church, Cot Lane, Chidham, West Sussex on Friday 19th and Saturday 20th June from 10 a.m.  – 6 p.m. and on Sunday 21st June from 12.30 – 6 p.m. Entry is free and refreshments will be available.

As you can see from the photographs below the ladies all had great fun sorting their flowers

Hampton Court ‘Florimania’ 2015

Sally was delighted to visit Hampton Court Palace on Saturday afternoon to view the exhibits created by the very talented members of Surrey Area of NAFAS for ‘Florimania 2015. All the arrangements were made using plant material supplied by Nursery Fresh with each one depicting a different era of flower arranging from the past five centuries. As you will see from the photographs below each one was stunning and it was a privilege to view such creative work. A big thank you to Hampton Court and all those involved.

Hampton Court ‘Florimania’ 2015

We always know that Spring is on its’ way when we are asked to supply the flowers for ‘Florimania’ at Hampton Court Palace. This year’s event showcases the way in which flower displays have changed over the past five centuries to tie in with the fact that the Palace is 500 years old this year.

It is such a pleasure working with Jane Rickard and the Surrey Area of NAFAS in supplying all the plant material required for the flower arrangers to create their arrangements in the stunning setting of this beautiful Palace.

Having met with all the flower arrangers, Jane Rickard, sends the orders into us which are then collated and sent to our suppliers. On receipt by us the flowers are then sorted into individual orders ready for transportation to Hampton Court Palace early in the morning. Once at the Palace the buckets are arranged into order of collection times ready for the arrival of the flower arrangers who are then able to prepare their flowers ready for staging day. This is a seamless process which we have perfected over many years of involvement in such events.

We have today received this lovely email from Jane Rickard which we are delighted to share with you –

Hello Girls

Just to say thank you all so much for the beautiful flowers that you delivered yesterday to Hampton Court Palace for Florimania.

 As usual the quality is excellent and everything was again, so well organised.

 Some of your flower choices are just beautiful – the Blueberry and Capuccino roses are gorgeous.

 Tomorrow we shall have the pleasure of arranging them all and I am confident that, as usual, they will stand up well for the weekend.

With many thanks to you all again – I so enjoy working with you.

Love

Jane

In return, we would like to thank Jane, Surrey Area of NAFAS and all those involved with ‘Florimania’ at Hampton Court Palace for entrusting us with their order and we look forward to working with them all again.

If you wish to visit ‘Florimania’ it takes place at Hampton Court Palace from Friday 13th – Sunday 15th March and is an ideal Mother’s Day treat. Not only will you have the opportunity to see stunning flower displays but there will also be flower demonstrations plus the chance to visit the rest of the Palace and its beautiful grounds.

Below are some photographs taken during the flower sorting and then the handout at Hampton Court Palace

 

Mother’s Day Flowers

It is now less than a fortnight until Mother’s Day – Sunday 15th March.

Nursery Fresh can supply hand selected, hand tied bouquets from £25.00 (which includes local delivery) or from £35.00 if you wish them to be sent further afield by overnight courier (anywhere in mainland UK).

As all our bouquets are individually designed please call us on 023 9259 1422 to discuss your specific requests.

‘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
