When only the best blooms will do

on 11 February 2017.

valentines day martin and the magpieIn case you were wondering, no, it is absolutely not acceptable to bring home flowers from the petrol station on Valentine's Day. Such an offering is more likely to cause offence than set your beloved's heart racing. The same goes for supermarket flowers ordered online - no, no, no.

And there is really no excuse with floral artists Martin and the Magpie on your doorstep who can cater to everything from the modest to the completely extravagant. If you're a traditionalist, they can provide you with long-stemmed red roses of the deepest crimson hue. If you fancy a fresher, more modern take on the year's most romantic day, then let them fashion you something gorgeous and fragrant from their brightly coloured spring flowers including hyacinths, tulips and iris. Best of all, unlike the cheaper mass-market counterparts they'll last.
