About Flowers By Post
Our Jersey Heritage
In 1968 our market stall managers in Jersey’s historic Central Market came up with the pioneering idea of sending 'flowers by post', this was after dispatching bunches of Carnations through the postal service following requests from the throng of holidaymakers who regularly visited the island and the market in those days and who wanted to mark their trip by taking home some of the beautiful fresh flowers they had seen.
Other flower stalls copied us, and our initiative became popular. Thanks to this these same tourists that had received flowers at home soon started requesting a service so that they could send flowers to friends and family for birthdays, Christmas and mother’s day, among others occasions. Due to this the 'flowers by post' business really started to bloom.
By 1998, the internet was becoming more and more popular in business and households and we decided to build and launch our first website. This way, we could extend our range of services by taking online orders and delivering them to the customer’s date of preference.
As our base of customer expanded so did the array of flowers, we introduced to the range and began to offer Roses, Orchids, Lilies, Freesias, Stocks, either as a single item or organised in well-thought out bouquet, arrangements that quickly became part of our collection. However, Carnations to this day remain the most popular choice of our customers.
We still maintain a partnership with the original Jersey stall which nowadays operating under a former employee’s management. We are therefore taking the same local orders to this very day and continue delivering them with satisfaction.
