Supporting the local community
We always stock a wide range of seasonal flowers and indoor plants, encompassing both traditional and more unusual plants. Sue believes in supporting the local community, 80% of the stock being sourced from local wholesalers and growers, which ensures longevity and freshness. Plants, such as hardy perennials, seasonal bedding and annuals, are very popular with enthusiastic gardeners, who know the plants they purchase will thrive when grown at home. Ready- made hanging baskets are available and provide bright splashes of seasonal colour.
A Time 4 Flowers aim to help and support the local community wherever possible, an example of this is when children are invited to participate in a vegetable planting day each spring. This encourages them to learn about the food chain and understand the importance of freshly grown vegetables as part of a healthy lifestyle.
Small gifts, such as vases, photo frames or candleholders are sourced from local businesses and incorporated with floral arrangements to personalise your floral gift.
Nationwide & International relay service
When orders are placed which are outside the local area, we participate with other florists in a nationwide and international network, to provide their own relay service. Where the network does not cover a certain area, Sue researches a local florist, speaks to them personally and checks online reviews, to confirm they meet her exacting standards. By undertaking responsibility for the whole process, nothing is left to chance and clients receive the best quality flowers. It also ensures that there is no deduction for an intermediary and the order arrives within the specified time frame. A Time 4 Flowers has an excellent reputation in Orpington, because of these personal touches and has built up a loyal following within the local community.
Everyone has their own personal reason to buy flowers. Sometimes it’s for a special celebration, a time of consolation, flowers for love or sadness.
