Flower Scout connects florists to a dedicated band of British flower growers providing a unique range of flowers that will set your bouquets, displays and arrangements apart.
Our collection of local growers range in size and all are dedicated to providing a quality wholesale service to florists. Nothing we sell has been imported from overseas so what you will find is a selection of unusual and natural flowers and foliage all grown in Britain. Florists need to register before being able to browse, select and buy directly online.
We are not like other flower platforms - there is no auction system. Items can be added to a basket at any time for no charge. Items will only be charged when a purchase is completed and flowers can be purchased from multiple growers at the same time.
First register as a florist. Once this has been approved you can login and will see sections for Flowers and Foliage. You can search in your local delivery area or beyond (1), or search by grower or variety. Browse through the flowers available and click into the varieties for more information (2).
The product page shows images of the flower, quantities available and a description with more information including vase life and stem length. Select the quantity you want and then click 'Add to Basket' (3). once you have made all your selections you check your basket items and go through a simple order process just like any other e-commerce web store. You have the option to add notes for the grower and choose your delivery or collection options.
The system currently runs on a Thursday delivery day for orders placed by 9pm on Tuesday. Delivery or collection options outwith these times is arranged between the growers and florists. Not all growers offer delivery but we recommend that they do to increase access to flowers. Some areas are setting up a local hub for click and collect of orders eg Perth and Glasgow.
It is free to register with applications normally verified within 24 hours. We welcome your feedback and are keen to create a service that works for florists as well as growers. Please let us know how the system works for you and if we can improve it to better suit what you need.
