Florists are useful for quite a number of occasions - weddings and funerals particularly, but their remit is not limited to those sorts of events. In fact, most florists will cover all your flower needs. We admire good flowers at South London Club, we recognise the importance of a good florist, the effect that flowers can have on the atmosphere of a room, and so and so forth. We're not just about recommending good places to have food, we're about supporting independent businesses of all kinds, and South London has plethora of fantastic florists to choose from. We've decided it's about time that we gave you a rundown of what we think are the 17 best florists in South London, and hopefully our list will prove useful should you need the services of a florist in the near future.
The Flower Shack, Beckenham
The Flower Shack in Beckenham is situated right in the centre of Beckenham, within walking distance of Clock House station, and has a very wide range of plants and fresh flowers, all at very affordable prices. Renowned for their excellent customer service, The Flower Shack are also known for creating tasteful arrangements for all occasions. We think they're great, so great in fact that we've partnered with them to offer you 20% off with your South London Club Card.
Flowers By Tanya McKenna, Deptford
Having worked as a qualified florist for over 20 years in the West End and the City, Tanya McKenna did what any right-minded individual would do and headed South, to the land of milk and honey, and set up her own shop. Now heading her own crack team of florists, Tanya McKenna is one of the safest pair of hands in the business. We're so sure of that, we're offering you 15% off with your South London Club Card.
Blooming Desires, South Norwood
We've got enough Blooming Desires of our own at South London Club, we want far too much, and we know that we'll never get most of it. There is hope though, there is - we assure you. We've seen it, and it comes in the shape of Blooming Desires in South Norwood. This flexible independent florist has shown us the way, and we've never looked back. You should do the same. While you're doing that, don't forget to bring your South London Club Card, which gets you 10% off everything.
Harley’s Flowers, Deptford
Cat got your tongue? Need some flowers that will do the talking for you? Harley's Flowers is the place for you. Their ethos is to create flowers and designs that can communicate - not literally that is, as far as we're aware, neither Harley's Flowers nor any other florist have actually created flowers that can communicate directly, so there will still be a degree of interpretation in this. However, where some other florists north of the river (boo) might create an arrangement that might mean to say 'thank you' and instead say 'you're a tit', Harley's Flowers won't make a mistake of this kind. With all this in mind, the 15% off your South London Club Card gets you is quite the deal.
Flowers In The Wind, Earlsfield
Wow, look at you now, flowers in the wind, it's such a lovely day, and we're glad you feel the same, cause to stand up, out in the crowd, you are one in a million, and we love you so, let's watch the flowers grow. Some of you might recognise these as the (amended) lyrics of 'Flowers in the Window' by Travis. Frankly, we were struggling to put into words how much we rate this independent florist that has been trading for eight successful years in Earlsfield, so we did the only thing we could - quote Travis. Travis were, and are, quite middle of the road, but we don't think that the 10% off you get at Flowers In The Wind with your South London Club Card is, not one bit - you won't hear that on Radio 2.
Marcela Blooms, Elephant & Castle
Marcela Blooms is appropriately run by a wonderful young lady called Marcela, and she blooms excitement, interest and, most importantly, knowledge of floristry. We'd go as far as to say this is the best florist-cum-cafe in Elephant & Castle. If you're in need of flowers, or fancy a lovely cuppa, or even both (you rascals), then Marcela Blooms is most certainly a place you should be visiting in the immediate future. Woah there, slow down cowboy, don't forget your South London Club Card - it gets you 10% off tea, flowers and gifts. Got it? Okay, now you can go.
The Flower Hut, Greenwich
Situated right outside the beautiful Greenwich Station - which was voted the fifth best train station in South London - The Flower Hut is the prefect place to pick up some flowers on the way home from work. Heck, you could even do it on the way to work, just bring some flowers, liven up the office. Beyond day-to-day trading, The Flower Hut does arrangement services for events of all kinds, and you get 10% off with your South London Club Card.
Lola Flower Boutique, Walworth
Walworth is a slight mystery of an area for those who aren't from it or don't live there - a bit like Newington, or Furzedown. Obviously, being South London Club, we know all about Walworth, and we also know that the best florist in Walworth is definitely the Lola Flower Boutique. Using their expertise and creativity to compose some of the finest flower arrangements seen this side of the river, we're proud to say that your South London Club Card gets you 10% off there.
Lydia Florist, Brockley
After many fierce flower-based battles, wars that have raged long and seen countless petunias lost, Lydia Florist has kept its head well above the choppy waters of the Brockley floristry scene. The diversity of flowers they offer is their secret we'd say, plus the expertise of their florists, and it's a real bonus that your South London Club Card gets you 10% off.
The Flower Lady, Herne Hill
Who is The Flower Lady who lives on the Herne Hill? The simple answer is Elaine, the owner and manager of the The Flower Lady cart. Coming from a long line of florists originally from Portsmouth, Elaine has floristry in her blood, and we can't think of a more trustworthy individual to satisfy your flower needs. She'll even help you spruce up your back garden - maybe even your front garden - and if you show her your South London Club Card, you'll get 10% off
Crimson Rose, Greenwich
Crimson Rose are an inspirational florist who do the entire practice of floristry proud. While they've got quite a few locations dotted around the boroughs of Lewisham and Greenwich, we're a big fan of their shop situated on Plumstead Common Road. They don't take any commissions, so you get 100% of the cost of the flowers that you paid for. Speaking of percentages, did we mention that you get 10% off with your South London Club Card at their shop on Plumstead Common Road? No? Well we have now.
Through The Vape Vine, Earslfied
If you were to guess what particular niche Through The Vape Vine fills, what would it be? Right first time! They specialise in both vaping and flowers. Having spent numerous years selling flowers, and making a very fair living out of it, the owner of this florist decided it was high time he started selling vapes as well. Earlsfield probably didn't know it needed a vape/florist, but the outstanding feedback they've got since suggests they do now. If you need both flowers and vaping assistance, then head on down to Through The Vape Vine where you get 10% off with your South London Club Card.
Wells Flowers, Bromley
For those of you reading this with an extensive knowledge of the South London floristry scene, the name Wells Flowers won't be new to you - they've been at it for a while, over 50 years in fact. Having taken over the business back in 1983, Carol and George relocated it from the Old Kent Road (which never truly ends) to Bromley in 1992, and they haven't looked back since. Catering to one of London's largest boroughs, Wells are a family-run business who have proven they've got what it takes. If, and when, you do visit their shop, you'll want to bring along your South London Club Card, as it gets you 10% off in shop (excludes funeral items).
Chez MIchele, Borough
Nestled right in the heart of the glorious Borough Market, Chez Michele has been bringing a French twist to the hotly-contested South London floristry scene since 2004. Covering all your needs, and doing a ruddy fine job as well, Chez Michele is a great place to pick up the flowers that you need for the event your putting on - or even just some lovely flowers to decorate your home with.
Janet Edwards Florist, Brixton
Janet Edwards Florist is an absolutely charming independent florist that calls Brixton its home. Appropriately run by Janet Edwards, with the help of her dear friend and colleague Cynthia, Janet Edward Florist has a long history of satisfying the population of Brixton and beyond with their stunning arrangements. We think it's about time you found yourself a proper florist, and while you're at it, get yourself 5% off purchases over £5 & 10% off purchases over £10 with your South London Club Card.
A.G. Flowers, Nunhead
A.G. Flowers is the only florist in all of Nunhead, so if you're a resident of Nunhead, it would make sense to use them. After all, don't you want to support the local economy?Their convenience isn't really the most important aspect of what A.G. Flowers do, because they're so good, we'd recommend people who don't live in Nunhead to use them too. That's how good they are, and also you get 10% off when you spend over £20 with your South London Club Card.
Beckenham Flower Studio, Beckenham
Just to be clear, Beckenham Flower Studio do not make films, they are florists, not a film studio. It's in the name - Beckenham Flower Studio, not Beckenham Film Studio. Now that's out the way, we can tell you that owner Sevil Pretara has been working in the dangerous world of floristry for almost 30 years, and is still at it the thrillseeker. You know what else is thrilling? That your South London Club Card gets you 10% off purchases over £20 (excludes Valentine's, Mother's Day, Funerals + Weddings).
