Fork & Flowers is an independent flower shop owned by Cassandra Thompson Jones a Kew trained gardener and florist. The shop is a beautiful scented oasis in the heart of Shaftesbury where you'll find a fantastic selection of flowers with which the girls make everything from pretty posies, for a little thank you, to huge romantic bouquets and everything in-between. If you're getting married or hosting an event do pop in for a chat about how they can make your day extra special with fabulous bridal bouquets and stunning table arrangements along with plenty of tips on styling your event.
With Valentine's Day just around the corner pop in and see their range of romantic roses and pretty seasonal flowers which can all be gift wrapped and delivered to surprise your loved one. Take advantage of pre ordering for free delivery to your place of work in and around Shaftesbury the day before. Don't be shy, the friendly florists will help you choose the perfect gift and are happy to give a lesson in 'Oh, you shouldn't have'!
Alongside the flowers you'll find two floors with an ever changing treasure trove of vintage and antique pieces mixed with colourful glassware, home accessories and gifts for gardeners. During the summer months you can enjoy browsing the garden antiques or pick a bunch of seasonal flowers from the sunny walled garden.
Fork and Flowers also has a Flower School where they run workshops all year round so that you can pick up some great tips on making the most of your own flowers - learn how to arrange them like a pro or master the more technical skills of seasonal wreath making; bring your children for fun Easter and Mother's Day workshops; learn how to make beautiful dishes using organic edible flowers or get your friends together for a novel hen party where you can learn how to make fabulous floral jewellery for the big day.
Remember, if you can't get to the shop yourself they can also send flowers for you locally on the day and nationally by next day courier, visit the web site or just phone 01747 852662.
