Southampton is not just a city with a love of flowers, but also has some of the finest gardens anywhere in the United Kingdom. The nearby Exbury Gardens, built around the nearby Exbury House, were built by the world famous Rothschild banking family, who still own a considerable amount of the land today. The two hundred acres of fine gardens are renowned internationally for the great collection of exotic and beautiful flowers kept by the Rothschilds, known simply as the 'Rothschild Collection'.
Beaulieu, another extraordinary stately home and gardens in the environs of the city of Southampton, is equally worthy of a visit. The house, named after the nearby river Beaulieu, is a French chateau styled building that has provided a fine setting for films including Harry Potter, James Bond and the popular television show, World of Top Gear. The Beaulieu daffodil garden is one of the grandest sights west of the English Channel for lovers of floral gardens.
In comparison with most other cities around the UK, this already sets Southampton in good stead as a city of flowers. Without a visit to the extraordinary Sir Harold Hillier Gardens, though, a visitor to the city would really have no idea how much it has to offer. Just to the north of Southampton, this extraordinary collection contains over 40,000 trees and beautiful collections of flowers from around the world.
Visitors to the city's Hillier Gardens can hardly fail to be taken aback by the size and scale of Southampton's horticultural tradition. Of course, a visitor only has to take the short ferry ride across to the beautiful Isle of Wight to find acres upon acres of lovingly tended gardens, windswept fields and some of England's most picturesque landscape.
The island, like many of its surrounding sights of interest, gives residents and visitors in the city a chance to take in some of England's finest nature and gardens. A visit to any of these wonderful places is bound to give you a desire to take a little bit of floral beauty back with you. Arena Flowers would be more than happy to help send that beauty to somebody special for you. Whether it is a fresh bunch of daffodils for Mothers' Day, a carefully chosen bouquet inspired by one of the local gardens or a colourful expression of affection or thanks, give us a rough picture of what you would like to send and we'll colour it in beautifully for you.
The summer sun has started to come out. This is good news for Southampton gardeners, who can look forward to seeing their carefully tended flowers come out in colourful bloom over the coming weeks.

Southampton, just across the water from the beautiful Isle of Wight, is a city for flower lovers. The popular Southampton Common is a great place to go and see the city's colours in bloom, especially in the Southampton Balloon and Flower Festival, a tour de force of beautiful blooms that can hardly fail to give visitors a few ideas for their own bouquets.
The Common's Southampton Garden Festival is no less impressive, with visitors from around the UK and beyond. This latter festival's famous 'twelve hour garden challenge', a race to create the most beautiful garden possible within the space of a day, is a must-see event for families, children and anybody who would like to test their own creativity when it comes to exploring their inner artistic gardeners.
Nearby in Fareham, the Fareham Flower Club Annual Fundraiser is another event in the area's horticultural calendar. Selling flowers in the town's busiest shopping destination, the annual event is organised by the 65 year old Fareham Flower Club. It helps to keep the town colourful, raises money for good causes and keeps alive the tradition of Mothering Sunday, when mums are reminded just how much we all rely on them with a beautiful bunch of spring daffodils.
