WE'VE MADE HEADLINES IN THE SEVENOAKS CHRONICLE

We're famous! In this week's Sevenoaks Chronicle, the great news of becoming a member of the Good Florist Guide is hitting the headlines!

Sevenoaks Chronicle wrote: "A Borough Green florist has been labelled one of the country's best after being accepted into an exclusive group of the best shops in the UK. Flowers of Borough Green has won a place in the exclusive Good Florist Guide, the gold standard of floristry and the only merit- based guide to the finest florists in the UK and Republic of Ireland.

The so-called 'little black-book' of British and Irish florists awarded the prestigious accolade to the shop last week and its owner, Fiona Wakefield, said she was thrilled to be recognised.

"We are delighted to be accepted into the Good Florist Guide" she said, "We are passionate about flowers, design, quality and the service we give to each of our customers, so it is wonderful to have this recognised. And what's special about our business is we all love what we do and we care- I have a great team of dedicated florists who are experts in our field".

Thank you for all your support which means so much to us!

The Lonely Bouquet!

I'd you haven't heard of The Lonely Bouquet, florists around the world have been leaving small bunches of flowers, in random places for you to find & adopt. So if you are a lucky finder & see a “Lonely Bouquet” pick it up & enjoy it. It’s a lovely idea designed to put a smile on someone’s face.

We left a couple of posies & were delighted to receive a telephone call from Joyce Thacker within 15 minutes to say she’d found one of the posies on the bench in the High Street!                                                                                                                                                                
Another was left at the BR Station - were you the lucky  finder?   Please let us know.              

Look out for more “Lonely Bouquets”, with an adoption tag, left in random places.

Adopt me, please!
I’m all alone and looking for a new home… perhaps I can live with you or a loved one? Our flower friends would love to hear from us and find out where we ended up!
Please let them know at:

Flowers of Borough Green is 10 Years Old!

Yes, it’s official, Flowers of Borough Green is 10 years old! Many of you will remember when & how I started with my pedlars license, baby & flowers in the back of the car, knocking on your door. The baby will be 11 years old next month & in her final year at Borough Green Primary - how time flies.

Flowers of Borough Green moved into the High Street in February 2004, and in January 2008 we moved again into larger premises in Western Road. Over the years I have been supported by a fantastic team of florists, some of whom taught me at Hadlow College - I’m delighted to say I still have the pleasure of working with some amazing florists.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, our friend & customer, for your loyalty, trust & continued support over the years. We have had the privilege of creating wedding flowers & floral tributes as well as the 100’s of birthday, new baby & anniversary bouquets we make each year.

Thank you very much, Fiona

Good Florist Guide Award

PRESS RELEASE

8th June 2011

PRESTIGIOUS ACCOLADE FOR FLOWERS OF BOROUGH GREEN

Flowers of Borough Green, in Borough Green, Sevenoaks, has been accepted for the Good Florist Guide (GFG), a web based directory of the finest florists in the UK, for the fourth year running. This prestigious accolade is only awarded to florists who really make the grade and allows customers to have an extra level of confidence that they are buying from the best.

Each florist shop invited to be in the guide has to pass a rigorous evaluation process before being approved. This meant Flowers of Borough Green had to submit a detailed description of their floristry business, including range available and services offered as well as images of the shop, their design work, their team and even the delivery vehicle!

But GFG shops aren't just some of the best looking shops, they also offer the very best value when it comes to buying bespoke floristry and flowers because not only are they true craftsmen but have the very best product knowledge to make sure the flowers and plants you buy from them will last for ages.

Commenting on their success Fiona Wakefield of Flowers of Borough Green said; "We are delighted to be accepted into the Good Florist Guide four years in a row. We are passionate about flowers, design, quality and the service we give to each of our customers so it is wonderful to have this recognised".

Caroline Marshall - Foster, the UK's leading expert on independent bespoke florists, is responsible for setting up the Good Florist Guide. Editor of Florist & Wholesale Buyer, the florist industry's bible, and owner of Wordhouse Publishing Group, a multi-faceted company providing services to all sectors of the flower industry, the Good Florist Guide is Caroline's way of sharing the knowledge she has gained through years in the industry.

Caroline says "You can buy flowers virtually anywhere these days. But nothing really beats the experience of receiving fabulous flowers from a truly bespoke florist and without it costing an arm or a leg. GFG is my way of sharing all that is good about floristry. It allows consumers to know that the florist they use is able and willing to go the extra mile and make all their purchases, big or small, truly special."
