This devoted company takes online flowers orders and can provide flower delivery services throughout Kent and to a number of surrounding areas, including Bromstone, Dumpton, Kingsgate, Newington, North Foreland, Northwood, Reading Street, St Peters, Upton and Westwood.
Kent is home to many flower enthusiasts, whether their leaning is toward growing or arranging and exhibiting, and there are plenty of shows to see their efforts up close.
The most famous of these is probably The Kent Garden Show, held every May at the Showground in Detling. With hundreds of exhibitors, including Chelsea Flower Show medallists, there are always some extraordinarily colourful and naturally aromatic displays - not to mention some g reat opportunities to solicit tips and tricks from the UK's top flower growers.
Another popular event is the Flower Show, which is held every year as part of the wider Kent County Show in July. With the chance to be in for some medals and cash prizes, growers should apply early for a place in the marquees - but for everyone else, with floral exhibitions of all categories, including a hanging basket competition and a school miniature garden competition, the Flower Show can be a delightful day out.
One of the most advertised flower facts from the Kent tourist board is that there are over forty different species of wild flower growing per square metre in the abundant Elham Valley (in the North Downs).
Did you know that the hop (Humulus lupulus) flower is the County flower for Kent?
Flower enthusiasts like the Kent Group of the National Auricula & Primula Society are also keen to inform visitors about the history of their favourite wild flowers, the native continental auriculas, which are thought to have arrived in England from their original alpine meadows via the avid exchanges of leading sixteenth-century growers.
Visit Hever Castle for 125 acres of gardens, and to see their very own cultivar of rose, or Leeds Castle in the spring for the daffodils and narcissi.
Head also to the walled gardens of either Quex or especially the Riverhill Himalayan Gardens for a colourful treat of rhododendrons, azaleas, hydrangeas and peonies. For pretty autumn and winter walks, meanwhile, the Bedgebury Pinetum and Broadview Gardens, with their conifers and dogwoods interspersed with crocuses and snowdrops, are both ideal.
