We like a personal touch and we believe business should be the same. In our shop you’re not just buying a product or a service, you’re investing in the local community and building friendships.
About Laura Tuer
Just a little bit about me – I’ve always loved flowers and when I was little I used to make small vases of garden flowers for our family’s farmhouse B&B. Growing up on the farm meant that I learned a lot about the countryside’s
I have been a fully qualified florist since 2004 and my style has evolved and developed. I enjoy making the most of what’s available, using fresh foliages from the Cumbrian countryside and top quality fresh flowers from my suppliers.
I can provide floral arrangements for all events including weddings, funerals and christenings and I’m also available for demonstrations, classes and tuition.

Laura and Lee together with their boys Bill and Ted, have lived ‘in town’ for 15 years. When the lovely shop on Brunswick Road became empty in 2014 they thought this would be a great place for them to run a florists shop with a difference combining years of experience in floristry and catering.
