Flowers On The Cobbles

My love of flowers began long before I started as a florist 28 years ago as an apprentice in a flower shop in Liverpool. I worked hard and ended up owning a florist's in Leigh, Lancashire and also taught floristry at St. Helens College.

I moved onto Marks and Spencer's head office in London training their staff at customer service but ultimately my passion for floristry was too strong. I worked at a flower shop in Sandbach part-time for 10 years but always wanted to run my own florist and do things my way again. So with a little saving and fantastic support from husband Andrew, Flowers on the Cobbles was born!

Flowers on the Cobbles is about a team of fabulous people, all passionate about beautiful flowers. Jan, a former primary school teacher, decided on a career change but uses the same principles from her teaching as she does with her flowers. Our newest recruit, Helen number 2, has worked in a large florist in London for several years and is a fabulous asset to have around.
