About Us

Here we are in all our flower loving glory!

We’ve been trading from the Bournemouth Town Centre shop since 1991 (apparently the shop has been a florist since 1950!) and we’ve never stood still. Constantly evolving, seeking new ideas and direction, leading the way in top quality floral gift design for 25 years!

We seek the very best flowers from trusted suppliers based in or near the massive Dutch Flower Auctions, we work closely within the industry with David Ragg having a hefty clutch of RHS Gold Medals under his belt for works of Professional Floristry at the world famous Chelsea Flower Show and we simply love what we do – providing our customers with the very best flowers at completely affordable prices.

David Ragg oversees the business, and as a third generation florist himself, has certainly got plenty of years of experience to call on. He began working for his parents business many moons ago and has never looked back. His mantra is that “working with flowers should be fun and inventive…” and this holds true to this very day. A quick peek at his own website will explain more here

Lansdowne Florist operate from a centrally positioned store in the heart of the bustling Lansdowne quarter of Bournemouth. Although a vibrant resort town, Bournemouth is also home to some of the country’s top Digital Agencies as well as one the most progressive Universities. Lansdowne Florist is nestled in the hub of the business district and student campus, surrounded by eateries, coffee shops and nightlife. The store itself is a treasure trove of creativity & calm (even when playing our favourite playlists!). Not only flowers, plants and ceramics abound, we also stock a massive range of gifts and handmade chocolates – it really is win-win here; something for everyone and every budget.

Come along a say “hi” – you never know it may on a day we’re doing free chocolate tasting!
