Petal & Stem florist has moved their operation to Squires Garden Centre.

The business is owned by Lucie Saggs, a former member of the Squires team. Petal & Stem has built a strong following for cut flowers perfect for all occasions. Petal & Stem is open Tuesday-Sunday, while Squire’s is open every day of the week.
Lucie Saggs is delighted to be back at Squires: “I loved my time working at Squire’s. I’ve been coming back as a customer since I left six years ago.
“Having my own shop here is perfect in so many ways. It’s wonderful to meet up again with so many of the same customers, and to welcome my own customers. It’s great to be back working with the friendly Squire’s team. It’s like coming home!
“Squires is a great location with plenty of free parking. The strong footfall is so vital for a small business like mine.”
Sarah Squire said: “It’s fantastic to welcome Lucie back to Squire’s in Badshot Lea. She brings a service that many of our customers have asked for.
“There is a natural synergy between floristry and the plants we offer. It has long been a dream of ours to be able to offer floristry at the centre.
“We’re delighted to work with such a talented local independent florist. I am so pleased that the sight of fresh flowers greets customers as soon as they enter the centre.”
