The Shop

My name is Katie and I run a florist and gift shop in the lovely village of Charing in Kent. The Floral Madam is open six days a week and delivers beautiful flowers and gifts anywhere in the UK.

I created the shop in Dec 2006 and made it all the things I always wished to stumble across on a day off with some spending money!! It was lovely to get the chance to put all my energy into something creative for others to enjoy and provide feedback on.

I am determined to support local English flower growers, so always stock their freshly cut flowers. These make a lovely addition to the Dutch exotic stems. I enjoy the chance the florist gives me to keep in tune with the seasons. Preparing the flowers and bouquets makes you stop and enjoy the scent and beauty of flowers, which is otherwise hard to make time for.

We also stock many inspirational gifts which include collectable home ware items, fabric, stationary, kids clothes and toys, cards, wrap and ribbon. After years of searching and sourcing new items, it is my hobby to display them with scented posies to make and eye catching gift to be proud of!

This exciting new business is in it's second year and is rapidly building a good reputation for quality products locally. It's now time to share this concept with others.... so I will keep you updated with the direction I want to take this shop and hopefully, with your interest and support we can grow.
