Birthday 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. Simply visit the Customer Service Desk to receive your Treasure Map. The first 100 children to bring a completed Treasure Map to the Customer Service Centre will receive a prize.

New Season, New Flowers

The wild weather in Perth early last week heralded the change of seasons to the cooler weather of autumn – and with it a change in flower availability. While we are saying goodbye to Lisianthus, one of my favourite flowers with their colour palette of pinks, purples and creams, we can say hello to the first locally grown Tulips of the year.

While the cooler, wetter weather has lead to a slight decline in weddings until spring, we are expecting to be quite busy next weekend with Easter as Hanging Basket Florist is the only florist in Rockingham to be open and offering delivery on Easter Sunday. If you haven’t already registered on our website, do so now to receive a discount for Easter delivery.

Also at Easter we will be delivering a van full of red and white carnations to the Serbian Orthodox Church in Highgate – a job we have been doing for over ten years. While this is clearly well outside our usual service area the lady who orders the flowers is one of our biggest fans and won’t trust anyone else. So Easter is promising to be a busy long weekend.
