In the great northern city of Manchester, the cultural life is always bright – but the weather can seem a little grey sometimes. There are few better ways to brighten up somebody's day than a big, bright bunch of flowers. When it comes to flower delivery, Arena Flowers know a few things about how to put together lush, fresh and beautiful bouquets.Read more
Flowers bring a smile to anybody's face and a splash of colour to their kitchen table.
We struggle to think of any occasions that a bouquet of flowers at the door does not improve. Birthdays, anniversaries, promotions or even demotions are all made instantly brighter with a flower delivery, and Arena Flowers is dedicated to sending the most elegantly put together bunches and getting them to their fortunate destinations looking bright and lush. We have plenty ideas for beautiful flower displays of our own, although a walk through Manchester's parks and gardens may be enough to inspire you to design your own.
As one of England's largest cities, Manchester has a busy calendar for lovers of horticulture and gardens. Perhaps the biggest is the city's well respected Royal Horticultural Show, which features a hugely popular flower show at nearby Tatton Park. Attracting ever more interest from around the city and beyond, this is a great place to wander through some of the country's most inspired flower arrangements and displays. It would be hard to spend the day here and not end up full of ideas for the perfect flower delivery, which Arena Flowers will be delighted to turn into a beautiful bespoke bouquet for you.
The city also hosts a slightly more quirky event, the 'Dig the City' festival. The name of this week long bonanza of horticulture may alarm diligent city officers, but the festival has proved incredibly popular. Held in August, it is a chance for residents of Manchester to involve themselves in a frenzy of flowers, with arrangements, pots and gardens appearing all over the city and inspiring even the least colour sensitive of individuals.
As well as vibrant festivals, Manchester is home to an exciting Garden City initiative, the joint project of CityCo, the city centre's management company, and a major design and architectural practice based in the city, BDP. The initiative has already seen the Piccadilly Basin and Canal Side transformed through beautiful and imaginative design, landscaping and flower arrangements that are an equally good way to get ideas for a truly unique bouquet.
Unsurprisingly for such a major city, Manchester has a great choice of landscape gardens to visit. The well regarded Fletcher Moss Park and Botanical Gardens is one of the most special spaces in the city, located to the south within the M60 ring road. With magical landscaping and a beautiful collection of blooms, the park is a feast for the eyes and a fertiliser for the imagination.
The grand Dunham Massey Park, a stone's throw outside Manchester in neighbouring Altrincham, is a cornucopia of ideas for floral arrangements. The grand house and gardens are home to a host of wonderful displays, a dedicated Rose Garden, Daffodil Garden – hosting over seventy varieties of daffodils – and even a herd of deer.
Not far from the city, the Derbyshire spa town of Buxton is replete with elegant landscaping, and Buxton Pavilion Gardens is a great place to find ideas as well as to relax and enjoy the city's peaceful beauty. Peel Park in nearby Salford is another wonderful place to visit just outside the city, with extraordinary flower arrangements and some of the finest landscaping in the north of England.
Within the city itself, plenty of beautiful green spaces present wonderful ideas for the perfect bouquet. The large Heaton Park features a historic country hall, lake and acres of beautiful gardens. Wythenshawe Park is elegantly landscaped, while the romantic Fletcher Moss and Parsonage Gardens are a great place to go for floral ideas. As the summer comes up, the city's parks will become the perfect places to garner vibrant ideas for bouquets, but the many thousands of gardens up and down Manchester's winding streets are of course equally worthy of attention.
Whatever the inspiration and whatever the occasion, flowers are a fail-safe way to bring a smile to somebody's face. You can design your own bouquets or go for a classic and, whatever your choices for flower delivery, Arena Flowers will realise them in as elegant, vibrant and luscious a way as possible.
