‘The Flower Boutique’ was established in 2007 by Leentje Van den Eede. Leen studied in the Netherlands and at the New York Botanical Gardens, USA. She then trained with top Manhattan florists Floralia Decorators at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel. In New York, she also worked at Takashimaya on 5th Avenue, Plaza Florist on Park Avenue and Vert-de-gris. Within a year of Leen owning the shop, it was selected as one of just 12 English florists to feature in Sally Page’s beautiful book ‘Flower Shops & Friends’. – a year’s journey around English flower shops’.
In July 2023 The Flower Boutique was taken over by Helen Averill. Helen is incredibly proud to be the owner of such a wonderful local business. She continues to build on the shop’s fantastic reputation, by offering beautiful floral design with friendly, exceptional service.
