Frequently asked questions

Where do your flowers come from?

Why did you choose floristry for your profession/career?


Accidental I suppose through an opportunity given by a wonderful lady called Jane Morrell, with whom I have grown very close to over the years. Jane had a florist in the town of Totnes back in 1999 to 2003 called Green Fuse, where she offered me (Don) a job as a florist. Within a short period I was managing the shop having developed a flair for wedding flower design and transferred 15 years of retail eperience with M&S.

Where are your flowers from?

Do you buy local grown flowers?


Blue Geranium sources seasonal, local grown flowers throughout the summer months from June to September. These generally complement flowers sourced from The Netherlands.




How or why did you call the business Blue Geranium?


Blue Geranium Florist originally opened at a kiosk in Torquay (July 2007), which had previously been occupied by a Fortune Teller. Coincidentally, the name we created was in honour of the great crime writer Agatha Christie and her birthplace, Torquay. She wrote a short story, The Blue Geranium (1932), and created a villain, a Fortune Teller, who convinced her victim to beware of blue flowers.




Have you worked for other florists?


Don has worked for several florists prior to establishing Blue Geranium. His first taste of floristry began while he was employed with M&S (London early '90's); followed by the greatest opportunity with Jane Morrell at Green Fuse (Totnes - 2001-3); Moyses Stevens concession at Harrods (2003 until concession ended at Christmas 2003; Moyses Stevens, Clerkenwell and Sloane Square2003-4); Followed by Don reopening Green Fuse as a franchise (Totnes - 2005-7).
