Here at Floribunda Rose perfection drives us and the seasons inspire us.
Our flowers are always the freshest, best quality and most beautiful that blooms we can lay our hands on.
We use British flowers and foliage first and foremost and we pride ourselves on being an oasis free floral design company. Being as green as possible is really really important to us and we strive to keep our carbon footprint as low as we possibly can.
So where if not Holland do our flowers come from?… To be honest we are rather lucky, Buckets of Blooms grow beautiful seasonal flowers a stone’s throw from our floristry workshop. Niki is fabulously knowledgeable and absolutely passionate about her flowers which are fresh, fragrant, and seasonal and couldn’t be more local.
We also source British Flowers from Jill at Little Park Flower in Brimpton, the lovely Sarah at Flowerfield in Alresford and we also use Claire at PlantPassion’s fabulous flowers and source gorgeous Alstroemeria all year round from Ben at Crosslands. We get both flowers and foliages from Cornish growers Tregothnan and Clowance and source glorious scented Garden Roses from The Real Flower Company between June and October too.
When Floribunda Rose was first launched in 2014 it was much harder to find enough British flowers to fulfil our needs but I can honestly say that there are a multitude of flowers throughout the seasons now which we can get our hands on to offer you the very best flowers and foliages that grow on our fair Isle. We have also been lucky enough to have been granted foraging rights on Laverstoke Farm Park too thanks to Mr Scheckter’s support, so have a multitude of foliages available to us right on our doorstep.
It is such a joy to know that our flowers and foliage haven’t travelled half way across the globe and we know the conditions of the people growing and picking them are good.
If there is something very special to you that we can’t lay our hands on locally we head up to New Covent Garden Flower Market which is a treasure trove of flowers, foliage and vases among other things…and happily has more and more British flowers every year.
British Flowers may have been under-represented for years but they’re back and their fabulous and they have SO much to offer!

Our local suppliers care deeply about what they do and have amazing talent which is why we’ll we go to them first at every opportunity.
We use Kate Cullen Styling, Lancaster and Cornish or Pompomblossom for hand dyed raw silk ribbons for our bridal bouquets (because they are just SO beautiful) and often for our boutonnieres and corsages too.
We recycle everything that we possibly can, use recyclable packaging (glass jars & kraft flower bags) wherever possible and all of our green waste becomes compost in the end ~ even our workshop electricity is generated from solar panels!
