Brighter later: 8 independent Manchester florists for Christmas flowers

3 months ago

There’s a reason we buy people flowers at Christmas and it’s not just that we forgot to get their present until the very last minute. The urge to surround ourselves with plants and evergreens in the dying days of the year goes back to ancient times when festivals were held to mark the winter solstice. The berries, flowers and deep green leaves remind us that spring will return. And that once we reach the solstice on 22 December, every day from then on gets a little longer and a little brighter.

If you know someone who needs reminding that better days are coming, winter flowers are one way of saying it. And if you choose a local, indie florist for your bouquets and wreaths, you’re doubling the good vibes.

Here’s our pick of the best independent florists in Manchester for Christmas flowers. Search our shopping section for more places to shop local this festive season.
