Siansah’s Florist, Bethnal Green Road’s first flower shop, opened up last month. It is a family business that aims to change the way we buy flowers. Simone, the owner explains, “We do not have to buy flowers inside a bouquet. There are other ways”. In fact, buying flowers inside arrangements or in bubble gel can make them last up to three times longer.
The shop itself is very much oriented toward the local community. It caters to this diverse bubble between two train stations. One daily customer declared “Take this picture of me and put it in a frame. I am your best customer”. The shop also takes part in charitable initiative like fundraising for the Great Ormond Street Hospital, that specialises in caring for children. With a personal touch, competitive prices and original compositions, this shop brings warmth and colours to the Bethnal Green Community.
