It is no secret that my favourite weekend activity is visiting London’s most popular flower market on Columbia Road. I often dream of being a florist, surrounded by colourful plants and glorious scents. When Bloomon contacted me about a new flower delivery service I was instantly intrigued.
The company was started in Holland by three friends with a passion to deliver the freshest flowers from grower to the customer’s door. The Bloomon team pull together imaginative flower combinations to make unexpectedly beautiful bouquets. The concept was conceived in Amsterdam but has since spread to Berlin and London, supplying more and more of Europe with thoughtful floral arrangements.
The process is simple:
- Choose your size of bouquet, from small, medium and large.
- Choose how often… as a one off or every week.
- Organise delivery. Bloomon conveniently deliver day and night.
My elaborate bunch of flowers were delivered with a large glass vase and a sachet of plant food, and nicely trimmed and cleaned. They were quick and easy to arrange and thanks to the size (I received the large size) added life and colour to my sitting room instantly. Inspired by liquorice allsorts the arrangement had an inventive mix of flower varieties from soft-cupped coral peonies to unusual Celosia Argentea ‘Act Vida’ and Solidago. The rainbow of colours mimicked the retro sweet colour combinations.
The flowers lasted nearly three weeks, and when a couple of stems began to wilt I put the remaining flowers into a smaller vase. With such quirky bunches, Bloomon do all the thinking for you, so you just have to press send each week and your home will feel like summer even if the weather outside doesn’t agree!
