Proud to support Small Business Saturday!

05 December 2015

Small Business Saturday UK is a campaign to support, promote and inspire small businesses. Celebrated on the first Saturday in December, it’s part of an ongoing initiative to encourage more to #shoplocal.

We’re very proud of our local roots in Didsbury and grateful to the many loyal customers who support us with their business every day.  So this Friday and Saturday, we’re marking the occasion with mince pies and mulled wine to get you in the festive spirit, as you browse our sparkly decorations and festive arrangements.  We can take orders for fresh flowers for delivery or collection nearer to Christmas, but will have gorgeous wreaths ready to go – choose from frosty white, traditional red and gold or our modern peach and copper arrangements.

Doing our part in supporting small business 

We stock a heavenly range of soaps, creams, candles and scents from Heyland & Whittle.  These quintessentially British products are handmade and carefully packaged in England by a dedicated team who pour their passion for quality and all things natural into every product, from their luxurious candles to the smallest bar of soap. Choose from classic formulations of Neroli & Rose and Olive & Fig or try the Green Tea & Grapefruit fragrance which evokes memories of a fresh spring day.

Closer to home, we work closely with a number of Burton Road retailers in West Didsbury to help us make our bouquet gifts extra special.

Award-winning Cocoa Cabana is a boutique chocolatier specialising in chocolate heaven. Their divine handmade truffles, chocolate bars, brownies and cakes are perfect gift accompaniments.  We fervently recommend their chocolate afternoon teas too!  This Saturday they have the big man himself visiting with a Santa’s grotto! Entry is £5 with money going to local charity, Francis House.

Belly Button Designs are a Burton Road stalwart.  Their gorgeous range of cards are stylish, fun and distinctive with something for every occasion.  A thoughtful addition to our gift bouquets, you can find a selection of their pretty Christmas cards in our shop now.


Please do keep playing your part in supporting local independents and enjoying the rich, unique and quality produce created by the wonderful artisans, specialists and enthusiasts in your area!
