If your looking for a Christchurch Florist in New Zealand's Flower City, then you will be spoilt for choice.
Christchurch is aptly named, because in the spring and summer the Christchurch gardens are a riot of colour, with some of the best public gardens in New Zealand.
Around the tourist centre of Christchurch, florists shops seem to be everywhere. Many of these are small one or two person businesses and, although their shops may seem small, Christchurch florists are some of the best trained and most creative florists in NZ.
In the spring and summer most of these florists cut flowers are locally grown with many of flower varieties differing from what you will find in the North Island. The blooms here are less tropical and tend towards the older varieties, perhaps more in keeping with what you would have found in a NZ florist shop 20 or 30 years ago. It is not surprising, given Christchurch's climate and history that many of the flowers are traditional English varieties.
In the autumn and winter the Christchurch florists have to source their cut flowers from the larger New Zealand flower growers in the North Island, mainly around Auckland and the Bay of Plenty. This is because the Christchurch winter climate is not suitable for commercial fresh flower growing.
For the person who simply wants a cheap, colourful bouquet as a gift, or to enjoy in their own home, some of the best buys can be found in the flower sellers barrows, in and around the Cathedral Square. The blooms found here are of a surprising good quality and usually remarkably low priced.
Christchurch Florist shops can be found in most of the older suburban shopping centers. Many of these are long established businesses that have been serving their local area for several generations. You will find these florist are extremely knowledgeable, not only on the subject of cut flowers but also on growing and tending flower plants in general.
The modern, trendy florists can be found in the Christchurch city centre and in the newer, up-market suburbs like Fendalton and Merivale. The floral arrangements produced by these florists compare very favorably with best that Wellington or Auckland florists can offer. North Islanders, used to paying high prices for their bouquets will be pleasantly surprised at the low prices charged by these Christchurch florists.
