Following on from last week’s post we are delighted to share with you a selection of photographs of the completed arrangements from last weekend’s ‘Florimania’ at Hampton Court Palace.
With the event entitled ‘ Flowers from around the world: exploring the continents, each of the arrangements represented either a picture on display in Hampton Court Palace or a country of the world.
Following the event, we received the following email from Jane Rickard of Surrey NAFAS:
“The flowers are exceptional and are standing up really well.
The feedback from the public over the last 2 days has been great. Many thinking it was the best yet!!!! Of course, that is largely due to the quality of the flowers. As usual – all went smoothly and you handled the whole day marvellously!!
Thank you once again for all your help and patience with us and the good organisation of our flowers on conditioning day.”

Yesterday we made our now annual trip to Hampton Court Palace to deliver the flowers for their ‘Florimania’ event this coming weekend
It was our absolute pleasure to, once again, be working with Jane Rickard and her team of flower arrangers from Surrey NAFAS
The theme for this years’ event is “Flowers from around the world: exploring the continents” so a vast array of flowers were chosen by the arrangers including the largest quantity of tropical flowers we have ever supplied
The photographs below were taken during the handout and conditioning of the flowers and we look forward to sharing photos of the finished arrangements soon
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.
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
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.
It has, once again, been our pleasure to work with the Surrey Area of NAFAS in supplying the flowers for ‘Florimania’ 2016 which takes place at Hampton Court Palace this weekend.
During the weeks leading up to the event, we work with Jane Rickard of Surrey NAFAS in collating the orders which are then placed with our suppliers for delivery to us the day before they are delivered to Hampton Court. We then have a busy day sorting all the flowers into individual orders which are then transported to the Palace early in the morning, ready for distribution to the Flower Arrangers.
Below are just a few photographs taken during the delivery and distribution of the flowers and we hope to post some more of the finished displays in due course
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.
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.
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
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.
