Bloomin' Flowers is something of a shopping secret in Albany. We are not on the main street and we're generally pretty modest, but we just keep delivering and building our loyal following. We thought long and hard about what our customers want: prompt, friendly service, creative flair,and value for money. We take great care over how bouquets are presented, and because we grow many of the blooms ourselves our customers can be assured that the flowers are fresher and will last longer when they get home.

Plants talk?

Bloomin Flowers

We've probably all heard that you should visit a florist to "say it with flowers". What we probably weren't ready for is the idea that plants can talk to each other.

How? Well, some plants will create their own pesticides. The caffeine in a coffee been is actually designed to stop insects from nibbling the seeds of this wonderful plant. But what if another plant could pick up on the smell of that coffee? Or the smell of a plant warning signal?

That is precisely what seems to be happening. So now you have another reason to go to the florist instead of cutting flowers from your own garden: you don't want your plants gossiping about you, do you?
