Welcome to the flower room*
About our shop
Based in the heart of the beautiful and historic village of Chaddesley Corbett, the flower room* is not your average florist but a place where special flowers with succulent colours and scents are combined for all of life’s events with the kind of old fashioned personal service that you may have thought had disappeared.
Come in and watch your flowers brought to life in front of you in Helen’s skilled hands, not put together in a back room where you can’t see what’s going on. Helen says “I just love every part of running my little business and I hope my passion for flowers, especially English flowers, comes across to you in my work”.
In addition to flowers and plants we sell a selection of exclusive gifts including cards for all occasions, floral accessories and vases, candles, and often locally made bridal gifts and jewellery. Stock is constantly changing so call in to see what’s in this week.
Home grown flowers and foliage
Our family-run market garden is just half a mile away, which ensures a constant supply of air-mile-free foliage such as eucalyptus, magnolia, herbs, and English country garden leaves year round.
During the later winter we start with flowers: Anemone, pinks and ranunculus moving into spring we grow tulips, alstromeria, calla lily, scabious, then in the summer months come the old fashioned English classics of delphinium, sweet peas, trachillium and in the autumn colourful chrysanthemum, dahlia and sunflowers.
Our little slice of english village life
Picture perfect. The Old Malthouse has had many past lives from a house, a Youth Hostel through the 1950’s and 1960’s, an antiques shop, second- hand dress boutique and a shoe and gift shop.
But for the last 13 years it has been home to the flower room* and it works perfectly as a florist. Cool in summer, cosy in winter, a quirky space with a constantly changing window display which brings smiles to faces and gets wonderful comments every week. Come along and see.
