Local florist Petal & Stem – run by a former Squire’s employee – has set up shop in a prime position just inside the entrance of Squire’s Garden Centre in Badshot Lea.

Customers will now be able to buy bouquets of cut flowers at the centre alongside Squire’s usual offer of seasonal plants and accessories for the garden.

Petal & Stem has relocated from its original site on Weybourne Road in Farnham and will be open Tuesday to Sunday within the Squire’s centre.

Lucie Saggs, who runs the business, is delighted to be back at Squire’s. She said: “I loved my time working at Squire’s and have been coming back regularly as a customer since I left six years ago. Having my own shop-in-shop here is perfect in so many ways – it’s wonderful to meet up again with so many of the same Squire’s customers, to welcome my own customers from Weybourne Road, and to be back working with the friendly Squire’s team. It’s like coming home! Squire’s is a great location with plenty of free parking, and strong footfall, which is so vital for a small business like mine.”

Squire’s Garden Centres chairman Sarah Squire added: “It’s fantastic to welcome Lucie back to Squire’s in Badshot Lea; bringing a service that many of our customers have asked for. There is a natural synergy between a floristry and the plants we offer, and it has long been a dream of ours to be able to offer floristry at the centre. We are 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.”
