Cultivate love with a gift of flowers this Valentine’s Day

Love is like wildflowers, often found in the most unlikely places and one of those places where love and flowers come together is at Cultivate Nursery and Gifts located at 93 Doncaster Road, The Village, North Balwyn.

The shop is brimming with flowers, both freshly cut and also a pretty nursery to the side where green thumbs or someone wanting to give a plant that will bloom and grow over the months can find their plant of choice.

For almost 20 years Michael Seeley has coloured the tables, the offices, the homes and the hearts of thousands of locals with his freshly cut flowers, seedlings and mature plants. This Valentine’s Day he has flowers of all varieties to touch souls and bring smiles to faces.

Florists Bianca, Sophie and Kay will be preparing the flower offerings for one of the two biggest days of the year – Valentine’s Day this February 14.

“We always make sure we have a full array of flowers for people to choose. Valentine’s Day tends to be a male-driven day and unlike Mother’s Day when a lot of flowers are pre-ordered, many are bought on the day, so we have to have plenty of stock in store,” Sophie says.

“There’s a lot of prep work that goes into making sure we have the freshest flowers on the day. Roses tend to be the top flower pick.”

Cultivate Nursery and Gifts only buys quality roses from Grandiflora to ensure a perfect bunch of blooms are given to the recipient.

“Flower choices don’t have to be traditional and can reflect the person. We often ask what a person’s tastes, interests and likes are so we can create a flower arrangement that reflects them,” Sophie says.

Some of the best blooms available this Valentine’s Day besides the top selling roses of all colours, but especially red roses, are lilies, lisianthus, dahlias, orchids, sunflowers, Queen Anne’s lace, veronicas, natives such as banksias and kangaroo paw, and chrysanthemums.

Accompanying foliage includes smoke bush and sea holly which is a personal favourite of Sophie’s.

What is the point of difference at Cultivate Nursery and Gifts – quality, price and customer service.

“We know our customers by name and know their flowers of choice so we make sure we have the best of the customer choice in stock,” Sophie says.
