Ready made designs and bouquets everyday! Poppies has a second location to allow us to serve our customers better.
Poppies has expanded!
We wanted to offer our customers better in-store choices and customer service.
We now create most of our web-ordered designs for delivery from an offsite design and distribution warehouse in Vic West that has a huge cooler brimming with fresh flowers. This allows us to create more ready made bouquets and designs available to choose from in the shop, as well as allows our designers downtown to continue to create custom bouquets when you come in. We also carry a large selection of pottery, tropical plants and orchids, and are expanding our downtown inventory to have planting supplies, fertilizers, and more.
In addition to changing our business model to cater more effectively to walk-in traffic, we are back to offering our Saturday Floral design workshops! See our workshop tab for more information.
When we first bought the Island Florist in 2006, we were so new to Victoria. Now 15 years later we can't imagine living anywhere else. And so much has changed! Downtown has been under a constant state of construction of new residential buildings in our neighbourhood. Since we arrived we have seen the Juliet, The Dominion Rocket, the Wave, Yello on Yates, The Aura, Yates on Yates, Premiere Suites, The Beacon - all within a block of our shop in the Atrium! That's a lot of new people living downtown. And we want to be the first place they think of when they wonder where to go for flowers and plants.
And we have created a new and improved website! We have been listening- to the suggestions from our customers to have a more user friendly website that still offers all the same create products. It looks very similar, but the online ordering procedure should be better than ever. We welcome your continued feedback so we can continue to improve!
Thank you for over 15 years of continued support of our locally owned and operated flower shop!
