Oh so posy! Norfolk’s coolest florists
Planning on buying some gorgeous flowers for your other half, your mate or your lovely self this Valentine's Day? These blooming marvellous Norfolk brands are here to serve.
Constance & Thyme, Cromer
Looking oh-so-chic both inside and out, this brand new eco-friendly indie florist is another fab addition to the buzzing seaside community in Cromer. It’s the ‘floral baby sister’ to Roost, a seriously charming houseplant and homeware shop just 30 seconds up the road, and it also stocks candles and cards.
Constance & Thyme also offer a full delivery service – and owner Rachel Andrews even grows her own British flowers to use in their floristry.
Crown House Flowers, Holt
This contemporary florist on Holt’s quaint Market Place, also offering deliveries, is the place to come for sustainable, cool bouquets. I’m utterly charmed by their habit of naming floral arrangements after beloved local beauty spots – I’ll take The Salthouse, cheers!
Crown House also embraces the ancient concept of ‘The Language of Flowers’, aka floriography, where tulips, for example, symbolise passion, or begonias mean beware. So you really can say it with flowers!
Ragged Robin, Wymondham
We love the bright, friendly vibes and the properly sweet blooms at this indie florist in the pretty market town of Wymondham.
The team can also deliver all around the South Norfolk area – plus, they sometimes run some lovely workshops. Bootiful stuff.
Constance Rose, Creake Abbey
Norfolk florist Constance Rose has a botanical and floral shop in perhaps the most perfect of locations – among the array of indie shops in the courtyard at Creake Abbey, where ancient ruins stand guard over the picturesque water meadow.
They also offer deliveries, but only on Fridays, so get organised if you’re hoping to get your hands on something for Valentine’s Day.
Rambling Rose, Norwich
When is a florist not a florist? When it’s also a totally tasteful gift boutique! Rambling Rose have been a thriving business since 2014 but launched their first store late last year, on Norwich’s Unthank Road. Stocking gorgeous bits and bobs from local makers, as well as amazing flowers, they also hosts fun workshops.
For an extra spot of floral fun, see if you can spot the stunning ‘Insta-llations’ for other shopfronts, including the St Giles Pantry and Lisa Angel, which the Rambling Rose team have created around the city.
Rose Garden Flowers, Kings Lynn
The founder of this brand new King’s Lynn florist, Charlie Metcalfe, is only 18 – ultra impressive!
Selling traditional bouquets made with a big twist of youthful creative flair, Charlie touchingly named her new shop after her much-loved late Grandma’s favourite song.
All together now, “I beg your pardon…”
