Although Flowers for Florists has been in business for nearly 40 years, and has a customer base spread throughout the UK, for many Tandridge residents it may still be one of the district’s hidden gems. Located since 2012 in South Godstone, its tranquil ambience offers a peaceful escape from the traffic passing by on the A22, and the free car park allows visitors to shop at their leisure, before concluding their experience at the cosy cafe, for hot and cold drinks, cakes and pastries.
The business imports their blooms from world flower markets and European flower auctions and, with a computer-monitored cold room on site and a comprehensive online shop, Flowers for Florists is able to provide a complete floristry service to both trade buyers and the general public alike.
Flowers for Florists offers a fast and efficient service for trade clients, and its friendly staff are always available with help, suggestions and tips for their retail customers as well. Its expert florists can prepare arrangements for all occasions, from weddings and funerals to corporate or private events, but are equally happy to simply advise if you would prefer to do this yourself.
Cut flowers can either be ordered in volume and delivered or you are welcome to drop in and browse for everything you need. An extensive range of florist supplies, to perfect your bouquets, arrays and displays, is available on location and online, too.
Tim Wildenberg, who has been at the helm of Flowers for Florists since 2018, says their ability to give the general public access into a floral world usually only accessible by the trade is what makes them unique:
“Our clients can not only choose from the quality flowers we have in stock, but they can also explore the overseas flower markets and pre-order from them, at wholesale prices.”
In addition, Flowers for Florists runs regular workshops. Suitable for all abilities, participants can learn or improve on all kinds of floristry skills: tabletop settings, basket displays and more. Their autumn schedule of workshops includes creating a harvest pedestal design, suitable for large spaces such as hallways and churches, and traditional Christmas wreath making.
