As COVID-19 has meant that so many much-awaited events have been cancelled, industries like florists have been hit hard. Even if it’s just sending a bouquet of roses (or planning your wedding for 2025), let’s do what we can to give our custom to some of the best black-owned florists in the UK.
Elegant and romantic wedding flower arrangements with a touch of timeless glamour. Based in Bedfordshire, they extend their services as far as London and Cambridgeshire, and source all of their flowers from local farms in summer to reduce their carbon footprint.
Floral artistry that mixes form, colour and texture on canvases big and small. Hazel Gardiner’s experience in the creative industries lends itself well to envisioning how flower arrangements can induce immersive experiences.
Captivating bouquets and revolutionary floral design services based in Catford, south east London. Founder Catherine is also eager to get people of colour into floristry and is currently running a mentorship programme.
Not strictly a florist but a cacti and succulent boutique, PRICK is the first shop of its kind in London. Their plants come in all shapes and sizes, and founder Gynelle sees them as a great way to bring the best of nature into your home.
