The early bird gets the worm prettiest blooms.
At least, that’s how the saying goes at the New Covent Garden Flower Market.
With 21 wholesalers and 10 florists under one roof, supplying 75% of London florists, the trade-centric market is a flower lover’s dream come true.
Home to the finest flower suppliers, the market offers the widest selection of the freshest flowers, plants, foliage and sundries.
Fields of rainbow-coloured blooms everywhere you look.
Boxes upon boxes of heaven-scented, British-grown wonders.
Pastel-coloured hydrangea clouds.
Provence-worthy fields of French lavender.
Walls of greenery of all sorts, ready for eager green-thumbed gardeners to plant.
Many a lily of the valley bit.
The prettiest, barely-blooming peonies I ever did see.
Some more quirky choices, like these vibrant artichoke flowers!
And walls of the prettiest faux flowers, for those from you who like me can’t even keep a cactus alive…
Recently relocated to a new spot down Nine Elms from its previous home, New Covent Garden Flower Market is the ultimate spot to get the prettiest flowers at the very best value.
A must visit for florists, hotel managers, eager gardeners and brides-to-be alike.
Or you know, anyone wanting to treat themselves/their loved ones to a home filled with pretty blooms.
No matter why you go, one thing’s for sure – you won’t be going home empty handed!

(Google Maps doesn’t seem to have registered the change of address just yet though, so if you plan on heading to New Covent Garden Flower Market, your best bet is to locate the Nine Elms Booker store as the entrance to the market is just across the street.)
