Arena Flowers provide same day flower delivery to the City of Exeter and its surrounding areas, including Crediton, Dawlish and further afield. They also make daily deliveries to the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital, allowing you to quickly and simply brighten the day of a sick friend or relative.
Home to some of the finest springs and sweetest summers in all of Britain, Devon is naturally crawling with keen flower fanatics, and there are plenty of NAFAS flower clubs to join across the county. As a result, there are also a great many events, especially during the summer, to showcase their labours of love.
In June, for instance, there's A Festival of Flowers, hosted by the Ottery St Mary Flower Arrangement Society at Knightstone Manor (Ottery St Mary), with a different theme for arrangements each year, such as folklore.
In July, the Sidmouth Flower Club hold a competitive show, and the Club on the Exe host a demonstration by expert floral designers, such as the German Wally Klett.
The county of Devon is especially renowned for its abundance of yellow primroses. This low-growing perennial herb is known to flower throughout the year, but especially in the spring, and some plants have been found to live for as long as a quarter of a century!
Unfortunately, due to a combination of air pollution, changing agricultural practices, climate change, and a decline in coppicing small woodlands, primroses are in general decline across the UK. While older Devonshire residents can recall a time when they would pluck primrose flowers by the sackful, it is unlikely that this could be done today.
From the magical bluebell woods of Dartmoor in the late spring to the proud magenta foxgloves year round, Dartmoor is awash with wild flowers and sites of natural beauty.
Those looking to take a stroll around more cultivated gardens, however, are never lost for choice.
One of the most prestigious such gardens is the Royal Horticultural Society's Garden Rosemoor in Great Torrington. Come here to enjoy the colourful rhododendrons and pale digitalis.
Another popular haunt for flower lovers in Devon is Castle Drogo in Drewsteignton, where the grounds are immaculately tended year-round to display a mix of rhododendrons and magnolias, among others, as well as tea roses and floribundas in a dedicated rose garden.
At places like Budleigh Salterton's Bicton Park Botanical Gardens, meanwhile, visitors are treated to acres upon acres of rainbow florals, including camellias, magnolias, azaleas and rhododendrons, as well as ancient and modern roses.
