THURSDAY 22ND OCTOBER 2015

We are excited to announce we are now taking our Christmas tree orders.

Having already opened the order book from our corporate customers we thought it was best to open the order book up to take in advance tree sales. We will be posting a separate Christmas tree page on our website. As always we will be only selling premium quality non-drop trees.

They will range from small 3ft trees up to huge 25ft trees.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Please call me direct on

I have a wonderful story to share with you

Knightsbridge flowers customer

This chap who I had the pleasure talking to in Knightsbridge caught my eye.

We started to chat and he told me a marvelous story. In 1964, he was going for a job interview so he thought how could he stand out from the crowd. The answer a bright flower in the lapel. And I’m sure not only because of this he got the job.

Since 1964, he has always worn an orchard every day.

This is what attracted me to chat with him. I asked to get a photo to share with you all as I loved the story so much.

Of course, we always think of oscar Wilde as the dandy with the green carnation in his lapel and here is another present day dandy who I had the pleasure to stop and chat with.

SUNDAY 20TH SEPTEMBER 2015

Firstly I would just like to say you to all of our beautiful customers for supporting us. We do close every summer for a very long time and it is so nice that you all remain great customers to Knightsbridge flowers. Thank you.

Exciting time of year for Flower buying, The Hydrangeas this time of year in my opinion are the best. They are so strong and a lot of our customers are buying to dry them. For drying I simply just hang upside down tied but you must make sure if you are wanting to do this you do not wait for the flower to start getting near the end of its shelf life.

Also, Tulips have just returned to us which is great news. Tulips I would say are one of the most popular flowers we sell. A great tip for making tulips last is put a copper coin in the water. This is a great way to get a week out of them. Also, Hyacinths have also just returned as well as Anemonies. We will wait a week or two more before we start having Anemonies to sell as they are extremely short for the first couple of weeks of the season. We look forward to seeing you in Knightsbridge and any orders you may need please do not hesitate to call me direct.

Thanks
