For years I have been asked where is your London shop, and after opening our doors in Lincoln in 2012, I always wanted the next quirky outlet to be in London, but it had to be the right place and not necessarily a permanent fixture on a busy High Street. Last year we starting stocking our ribbons at Clifton Nurseries which is London’s Oldest Nursery over 160 years old. (Images courtesy on Flowerona)
It’s one of my favourite places in Central London, and you enter this hidden oasis in Little Venice with flowers, topiary, decorations, furniture and gardens.
You will also see Matthew Wilson wandering around there who is not only the presenter on the Channel 4 programme ‘The Landscape Man’ and a regular panellist on Radio 4’s Gardeners Question Time, but also the Managing Director of Clifton Nurseries. (Image courtesy of Achica Living )
Recently I have been doing several photo shoots there and have done gift wrapping services and demonstrations in the Quince Tree Cafe there which have been very popular.
They have regular parties, launches and events at Clifton Nurseries, and even Jimmy Choo had an event there last year filled with celebrities.
Luckily I live nearby and love to pop to the cafe (a sunny conservatory surrounded by flowers) for a spot of brunch outside before the buzzing lunch crowd arrive.
The Ribbon and Wrapping Room at Clifton Nurseries will be a pop up shop through the summer, stocked full of ribbons, haberdashery, trimmings, bespoke papers, decorations, gift boxes and bags and other gift wrapping accessories.
We will also be offering complimentary gift wrapping services on selective days, and be hosting several events during the summer months.
Having worked as a florist, we will be in our element surrounded by flowers and Jane Means at Clifton Nurseries will be opening it’s doors on April 25th and will be open from 11am-3pm every Thursday to Sunday throughout the summer.
We are also looking for some friendly part time staff to cover this opportunity and would love to hear from you if you’re interested in joining us. Just email us at email@example.com (Please do not use the comments box or contact Clifton Nurseries)
Even if you’re visiting the capital and need to escape from the hustle and bustle, this is the perfect place to escape to stock up on ribbons and flowers and enjoy a relaxing afternoon tea with your favourite book!
