Bunch London offer a South-East London based weekly flower delivery service. Normally offering flowers for events as well as bouquets, workshops and weddings, now in the times of Covid, they offer weekly Bunches, delivered on a Friday. Owners, Anna and Thomas told us: “We wanted to help people continue to express their love for those around them.”
Their flower deliveries are done in compliance with current government regulations: all Bunch flowers are prepared with gloves and deliveries are contactless and left at the recipients’ door. The drivers will knock /ring, and step back.
Anna and Thomas met on a dance floor in Berlin many moons ago and have been sharing their passion for flowers ever since. Anna started Bunch London from a market stall in Broadway Market in 2016, Thomas followed in 2017 and they have been working together ever since.
Thomas was born and raised in Lewisham and spent most of his life here. (His sister was even born on Lewisham High Street, in an ambulance luckily!). Anna lives with her young family just up the road in Peckham.
As a young business, Bunch London have also been suffering due to the Coronavirus crisis: “A florist’s main work is weddings and special occasions that people want to celebrate. With the new restrictions on people gathering we as an industry are facing very uncertain times, every event we had booked has been pushed to 2021 or cancelled. Anna even had to move her own wedding as a result of Covid.”
‘The hardest thing for us as florists is not being able to help people express themselves. So we thought a weekly bunch sent to someone who you care about, would be a perfect way to keep helping people say it with flowers.”
They currently work directly with their growers both in Holland and the UK to source the freshest flowers: “We are trying as much as we can to work with small independent growers, to help support small businesses as much as possible.”
