London's floral offerings are pretty impressive. For your dose of colour, give these London florists a follow on Instagram — they do a decent job of keeping the city looking pretty all year.
We walk past the Moorgate Flowers stall every day on Finsbury Pavement, and its colourful blooms never fail to cheer us up. A relative newbie to Instagram, follows will no doubt be appreciated.
The Fresh Flower Company
This East Dulwich florist shop sources flowers daily from the New Covent Garden Flower Market. Workshops and classes are also held on the premises for anyone who thinks they may have the early tinglings of green fingers.
Hackney based Rebel Rebel has a shop on Chatsworth Road and a workshop near Broadway Market. In the past, their work has kitted out the likes of St Paul's Cathedral, Wilton's Musical Hall, BAFTA and Selfridges. Workshops cover floral crown making, Christmas wreath making and general bouquet making.
Urban Flower Co
There's something quite retro about the custom bouquets produced by Crouch End's Urban Flower Company — and we love it. They lean towards using wild flowers, creating a shabby chic element to their work.
Petal To The Metal
We've got a lot of love for Paul (and his Border Terrier Olive) of Petal To The Metal, not least because from time to time they leave bouquets like these around London — y'know, just to make someone's day. Sadly, there's no shop to visit — appointments are available for wedding flowers and the like.
Run by two friends who share a love of flowers, West Hampstead's Achillea Flowers is always filled with fresh, seasonal bouquets and blooms.
Sweet Pea Flowers
Weddings are the main focus of Hackney Downs-based Sweet Pea Flowers, but they do also offer a flower arranging school.
