With the recent cold weather production of red roses has been greatly reduced, however this week we are again flush with beautiful, locally grown, red roses. We know that supermarkets and the like have had plenty of imported red roses, we prefer to support the local economy and only stock locally grown flowers.
While the designers here at Hanging Basket Florist have enjoyed using some of the different coloured roses we know that our customers will be pleased that our red rose specials will be again available for delivery in Rockingham, Bertram, Warnbro, Kwinana, Murdoch, Mandurah and Fremantle and surrounding areas from Hanging Basket Florist Rockingham.
We have been very busy here at Hanging Basket Florist Rockingham as I have had some time off due to the birth of my baby girl at St John of God Hospital in Murdoch, so I am a bit late in posting this photo of a beautiful wedding bouquet we did on 17th July for a Rockingham wedding. The ivy gives the bouquet a nice flowing look. The bride was, of course, very happy with the flowers.
On Sunday 11th July Hanging Basket Florist Rockingham will be celebrating our 27th year of sending flowers and gift baskets in Rockingham. We will be open this Sunday so come in and say Happy Birthday! We have seen a lot of changes in Rockingham and in floristry over this time – Rockingham Shopping Centre is three times the size it was back then, and we have shifted location within the centre 4 times! We also have many more varieties of flowers available than we did nearly three decades ago – it’s not just Carnations and Baby’s Breath anymore.
I wonder if someone will send us flowers for our birthday!
The after the weekend the Let’s Live Better Treasure Hunt starts on 12th July at Rockingham Shopping Centre for the school holidays.

Just a reminder that we will be open the next three Sundays here at Rockingham Shopping Centre as it is the July school holdays.

We do offer Sunday delivery to Rockingham suburbs, just be sure to order at least one day ahead.
Last Sunday the Rockingham Salvation Army held a banquet to thank those in the community that have helped them. Hanging Basket Florist were pleased to be invited and to receive a Certificate of Appreciation. For many years we have been providing flowers for their chapel every Sunday, at the end of the service a deserving member of the congregation are given the flowers to take home.
It was a great day to meet others from the Rockingham community that support this wonderful group and their good work.
Here is a beautiful sympathy flower arrangement created by Ingrid, featuring Oriental Lilliums and Green Dis-bud Chrysanthemums, which we delivered to Bertram last week.
Hanging Basket Florist would like to congratulate Port Kennedy resident Christopher Smith on receiving a Medal of the Order of Australia for his volunteer work with many Rockingham area community groups.
