One of my favourite flowers shops in North London is the Urban Flower Co in Crouch End. Even through I know very little about flowers – and plants for that matter – I’ve always loved having fresh blooms at home.
What I love about the Urban Flower company is that they have so many different varieties in store and can tell you in detail about every single one.
Don’t come here expecting buckets of lilies or bouquets of yellow roses. This is the place to come for weird and wonderful flora such as spider chrysanthemum, bright peonies, dramatic proteas, beautiful poppies and much more.
The Urban Flower Company was started by Matthew Richardson in 2010 in Crouch End, north London. They are still in Crouch End today, part of a thriving and friendly local community.
The other thing that I love about the Urban Flower Co. is their design aesthetic. You won’t find any ‘traditional’ bouquets here rather their bunches are intentionally unstructured and wild, which I love. Take a look at their amazing Instagram account to see some of their creations.
The studio designs a new bouquet every week using their favourite flowers and colours, or you can walk in and create your own bunch. They also offer a subscription of regular monthly flowers, which I’m secretly hoping that I might get for a birthday one year. They also offer flower delivery in North London and across the rest of London too.
The shop also has a large botanical plant section, which is equally fun and unpredictable.
