The team have been amazing!
I order some vouchers from Battersea Flower Station as a gift - throughout the process the team have been amazing at keeping me up-to-date with posting, etc. The vouchers themselves are lovely and the hand-written card with my message to the recipient rather than a computer printout was a really nice touch.

I live in Virginia, US. I've ordered flowers for my daughter living in London. John from Battersea Flower Station is very attentive and caring. He made sure my daughter received fresh and beautiful flowers. John is my London florist. Thank you.

I used Battersea Flower Station as they were near to the person I was sending the flowers to. The service was excellent and the person I sent the flowers to called immediately to say how lovely they were. Would definitely recommend them.

Little spot of paradise! I stumbled upon this secret garden during a five mile accidental excursion that began at Buckingham Palace and ended at Southside Shopping - where I met a nice lady from Jamaica in the loo at Debenham's. Stumbling upon this little slice of heaven was one of the highlights of my excursion and my trip to London! It is truly something magical and worth a visit even if you don't have a garden. I hope to visit again one day and on purpose!

Charming... Interesting little spot. It's definitely worth a look around if you're in the area. If you are buying, the staff are very friendly and helpful. They know their stuff, and give good advice.

Au Revoir Interflora!
Au Revoir Interflora! I'll never use Interflora again. John at Battersea Flower Station has a rare mix of quality and the personal touch. I have ordered two bunches of flowers from BFS and on both occasions I get an email/ text message from him to tell me when they are likely to be delivered and then when they have been!
The flowers are stunning and have a very rustic/ boutique feel about them. I'll certainly only be using BFS to order flowers from now on in South West London.

An oasis in the midst of London
An oasis. A garden centre and florist right in the heart of the city. The garden is filled with lovely blooms and plants. They sell floral bouquets as well as garden products like pots, compost, trees, plants, window boxes and gardening goods. With free local delivery and on-line service, it is an oasis in the midst of London.
Nellie’s 5* Review, Tripadvisor
These guys rock!
Favourite flowers - another beautiful bunch!
Always an awesome experience with these guys. I've made countless orders with them - nearly always same day - and they always deliver something stunning. Without doubt better in every way than possibly better known same day flower delivery companies (**cough cough** the terrible i#£erflora!!) - which can sometimes be upsettingly lacklustre. Battersea Flower Station deliveries are always bursting with good quality flowers and stunning colours and smells. They are also very pleasant/easy to deal with over the phone. It is unlikely I will ever use a different london flower delivery service!! These guys rock!!!

First Rate Company
This is a first rate company in my opinion. More than once John has gone out of his way to ensure my flowers have been delivered correctly, even when I have given the wrong address! I recommend Battersea Flower Station for real service and decency.

A real boost to the area
A long alleyway between a bus stop on a main road and a back street has been transformed into an avenue of colourful flowers, shrubs, and herbs, encouraging residents to enjoy plants on their balconies and terraces, and giving a real boost to the area.

Makes the whole neighbourhood feel proud
Few skilled businessmen or women can come up with such a community-focused and thoughtful idea, and then see it through the way this business owner and her team has. Come rain or shine. Just knowing it's around the corner must make the whole neighbourhood feel proud.

Lovely Personal Touch
The term 'hidden gem' gets bandied about a lot but this truly is such a lovely, hidden away grotto. It's hugely Instagrammable but the main draw is that it's a lovely way to spend a sunny day, poking about in a narrow, secluded and verdant strip hidden off the rather unlovely strip of Battersea Park Road. Battersea Flower Station was one of the first small businesses to open up at this end of Battersea Park Road and it's encouraged lots of other little businesses to spring up nearby such as the sourdough bakery, Flour to the People (across the road) and the chicken rotisserie and deli joint, Park Road Kitchen (located handily next door). As an independent business, there is a lovely personal touch that you don't get with other places: the owners are always very friendly, chatty and knowledgable; they offer a window-box planting service (no need for those who live in cramped flats to lug bags of soil about); and they have a charming gift shop with greetings cards and gift items.

John and Lisa could not have been more helpful when I was looking to buy new window boxes. They offered advice and sent photographs at every step of the process. It was amazing to come home and find the new window boxes looking so smart on my window ledges. Would highly recommend!

Very professional, organised and efficient service from Battersea Flowers. I emailed from Cornwall and arranged to have a gift voucher delivered to my friend who lives in Battersea, so she could fill a balcony box that I had already purchased for her. They delivered the voucher by hand in time for her birthday and are able to sort out flowers for her when she takes the balcony box to them. Very impressed 🙂

This review is very overdue as we visited in June but I just found the receipt to remind me.
Firstly, the place is a gem! Great use of space beside the train tracks. It's full of flowers, plants, pots and all accessories you could ever need.
We had an idea of what we wanted for our small Juliete balcony – some hanging vines and plants.
Caroline (or Carolyn – I can’t quite recall – apologies!) was fantastic. She made various suggestions and listened to our concerns and answered all questions. She spent a good 30 minutes with us showing how we could put the various items together (literally moving them all together from various places around the garden) so we could actually see the results.
A great way to spend a Saturday morning.
Richard, 5* Google Review, Sep 16
Fantastic from start to finish
I ordered flowers to be delivered to a friend of my daughter's: we are not based in the UK but John was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. He followed up with the order via email, confirmed when delivery had been made and just made the whole process very personal.
The flowers were gorgeous too - that goes without saying!

You can't ask for better service than that!
Order placed by phone at 0930hrs and delivered by 1100hrs. You can't ask for better service than that! Review is based only on purchase experience, since I haven't seen the flowers. However, I gather the recipients were delighted with them. Thanks to Al who took my order and chose the flowers and to John for advising that they had been delivered.

I fell in love!
I'm in Denver Colorado with a good friend living in London. I've never been there and know nothing about who is where, across any rivers, in different postal codes, etc.... it's very confusing for me.
I had to get some plants ordered but had no idea, I spent 2 solid hours googling different plant/flower delivery services. Although some were lovely, I do not have a royal budget. I found Battersea Flower Station. I fell in love with the site immediately! After a couple of phone calls and emails with John, he had us set up with fabulous potted plant delivery. My friend in London said she loves Battersea Flower Station, they are a high quality shop. We did great, thank you BATTERSEA FLOWER STATION! And thank you John!

You made everything so easy and stress free
It was my Mum's 60th Birthday and I had very specific instructions as to what she would like. I had spent days looking at images and websites that sold large blue glazed pots with no luck in finding any that I liked. I finally found this gorgeous pot at Battersea Flower Station and I just knew that it would be perfect. So ... I ordered it without hesitation. However, in my excitement I completely overlooked that I lived miles outside the area they delivered to! I couldn't believe it! I was gearing myself up for disappointment when I had an email explaining that I could either have a full refund or he would personally ask around the local couriers to see if he could get it delivered in time for Mum's Birthday. After a few emails and phone calls later John had arranged everything for me and at such a good price, as I live all the way down in Rochester! I felt that I was at the top of John's to do list because he knew how important it was for me to get Mum's gift on time. I received the pot on the morning of the 13th and I presented it to Mum on time for her Birthday. She absolutely Loved it! Thank you so much John for your hard efforts and for your kindness. You made everything so easy and stress free and Mum had a perfect day 🙂

Very understanding people. I had ordered flowers to be nest to friends, who were not there to receive these. The staff at Battersea Flower Station tried to deliver a few times and left a note to contact them. They kept me informed and once my friends returned home, they delivered a fresh bunch which was greatly received. Thank you all for your kind understanding.
Since this review ordered some flowers yesterday which were delivered today. Had a very happy couple who were thrilled to receive a lovely generous bouquet. Thank you once again for your help and the freshness of your flowers.

Daniel’s 5* Google Review, Sep 2016
It's very rare that a service I have received has been quite so fantastic, that I have been motivated to write a review. I would rate Battersea Flower station very highly. I placed an order to have flowers delivered to friends on a Saturday night at 11 pm. I requested that the delivery be made by mid-day on Sunday the following day. John Schofield from Battersea flower station, wrote to me the following morning explaining that they only opened shop at 11 am on Sunday, so a mid-day timeline maybe a little difficult to achieve. But then somehow they managed to make that delivery before mid-day and confirmed that to me by email. I am thoroughly delighted by their service. Needless to say, so are the recipients of those flowers. I would recommend their service very highly and certainly will use them again. PM

Rented plants for a corporate party.. Seriously amazing!
Battersea Flower Station is seriously amazing! I needed to hire plants at very short notice for our corporate summer party at Yahoo! ....on a boat. John was absolutely fantastic and I wouldn't have been able to get the same effect without him. Scott was incredibly helpful delivering and collecting from the pier...great guys! As a company we will definitely be using them again and I couldn't recommend them enough. Thank you Battersea Flower Station!

Apart from being a beautiful, long :), garden to wander along and come across a plant you can't resist, the staff are always so knowledgeable and willing to help and give advice according to your needs. My mum is never disappointed with the gifts they deliver to her on special occasions. The plants are always fresh and you don't feel like you've been cheated into buying a good looking plant that will die in two days!

Having moved to a flat in Kennington with large roof terraces which needed brightening up with some plants, how glad I am that I discovered Battersea Flower Station. John gave me excellent advice on the sort of plants to buy (including not to get too much to begin with!), and gave me plenty of time to think about it with no pressure. He and Scott brought over all the containers, compost and plants and did the planting, with excellent results. I can strongly recommend them.

Long Live Battersea Flower Station
This beautiful, magical garden/florist always has something my mum will love for her Little garden. They are so helpful, and know their stuff. It's such a change to be able to say what I need and they know what to suggest. Thank you all so much for delivering so many lovely plants to my mum. She always wanted a garden, and at the age of 79 finally managed to get one! Wouldn't shop anywhere else! Small businesses are not more expensive than large supers, at the big shops you get bad quality plants that die and no one knows anything about them - long live Battersea Flower Station.
Rose, 5* Facebook Review, Feb 2016
Battersea Flower Station great and welcome addition to this neck of the woods. Very pretty and with lovely stock of plants, flowers and all things for the garden! Plus gift shop and friendly staff. It's also a fab shortcut between Battersea Park Road and Winders Road railway bridge.

Gorgeous Flowers, Great Service
Gorgeous flowers - requested a bunch to be delivered to a local address - and also asked for a huge favour, to see if they could buy a couple of magazines to add to the delivery.

Basically, I love this place
The most magical little (but very long!) garden centre selling everything flower and plant related you need. The staff could not be more friendly and knowledgeable, they work so hard and yet never up-sell and go out of their way to help you with whatever you need, almost always at no extra cost. We always get our window boxes from them and get so many comments about them. Their bouquets are beautiful and very reasonable and I love their cards and gift bits too. I basically love this place, it deserves to thrive and is the perfect example of a local business.

Great experience with Battersea Flower station. Friendly staff, v knowledgable and hardworking. Scott visited our property & gave us with lots of ideas and suggestions to refresh our rather sad looking garden. He sourced some wonderful plants and spent the day meticulously planting. They are extremely professional and diligent, they worked tirelessly throughout the day and left the garden looking wonderful; and were tidy and clean throughout. I can't recommend them highly enough!

Their service is incredible!
What an amazing oasis of loveliness! Their service is incredible. They came round to the house to assess the environment that the plants would be in, then gave us some recommendations based the kind of look we were going for. We went to look at the plants and pots and made our order. They also delivered and installed the plants. The whole service was amazing and we wouldn't have got the look and style we were looking for without their help. I can't recommend them enough.

I was looking for a flower delivery in the area and chose Battersea Flower Station for its beautiful range of bouquets.

The most beautiful bouquet of flowers she's ever seen!
I ordered a bouquet the day (NZ time) before my daughters 20th with limited expectations and was thrilled when they arrived the morning of her birthday and were, as my daughter said, the most beautiful bouquet of flowers she has ever seen (they looked wonderful on snapchat!). I am so pleased to have come across this florist.

When delivery was attempted, I was immediately advised that no one was home but they will try again. Great service, easy and they kept me informed the entire time. Would definitely recommend!

One of the best! The Sunday Times
This is a colourful, quirky florist and garden centre in Battersea, located alongside the railway tracks. Battersea Flower Station offers a great selection of plants, with an emphasis on window boxes, containers and houseplants, as well as lovely things produced by local craftspeople.

Excellent service, I live in Spain but wanted to send a gift to my friend for her 60th birthday.I picked the Kew pot with box and ivy, but unfortunately they had no box left and suggested changing it to purple flowering Hebe, and sent me photo of the pot planted with the Hebe so I could see it, and delivered as promised this morning to my friend in Wandsworth Common - she loves the pot and the hebe. From the moment I first emailed them with my query - they responded very promptly and were extremely helpful. Will definitely use them again.

Fantastic small local nursery for great plants and all you need for a London Garden. John and his team were extremely helpful and ordered in everything I needed. They also delivered to the house. What more can you ask for?
Mark, Google Review June 2015
Friendly, fun and knowledgeable.
I really enjoyed my visit to BFS. John was very helpful, talked me through my small space for a good half hour and we selected some plants togther. Friendly, fun and knowledgeable. I couldn't ask for more. It's also just a very attractive place to hang out in: everything looks well cared for and is arranged to look enticing. Recommended.

Bursting with horticultural ideas
Three Glorious Garden Centres
— May 20, 2015 —
We consider the best places in London to scratch the horticultural itch inspired by the Chelsea Flower Show
Down south, in what used to be the Battersea Park stables, is a relatively new addition to London’s garden centre roster. Extending down a long thin strip of some 8,000 square feet, the Battersea Flower Station is a joyful tangle of plants, shrubs and trees, a florist, a tool shop, a greenhouse and a marvellous collection of pots. Hosting celebrations such as a Spring lavender weekend and contemporary theatre productions with the Chelsea Fringe, as well as offering advice for the best options for those of little space and free local delivery on its wares, this is a place bursting with bright horticultural ideas.

Wow.. the customer service is outstanding
Wow! I don't use this word often but Battersea Flower Station deserves it! Not only have they changed the view from my morning busstop commute into a floral oasis but the customer service is outstanding. I ordered flowers online to be delivered that day, I had ordered late in the morning and was told that a morning delivery would not be possible but they would be delivered that day. The flowers were hand delivered to the apartment door, not just left with the conceirge!! The bouquet was beautiful and the best value in London I have ever had. Well done- great seeing a local business doing so well and delivering such great service..I will now be a regular customer!

Everyone is helpful and friendly
This place is such a lovely local and independent addition to the Battersea area. Everyone there is both helpful and friendly, and the plants and other garden-y products on offer are well-priced and nice quality. I love that they offer a free service of planting up your window boxes for you - and they'll even pop over to take a peek at your place to help make a good design! Free local delivery and floral services make Battersea Flower Station an all-around great little garden centre.
Laura, Yelp Review, April 2015
Surprisingly large.. absolutely recommend it
The Battersea Flower Station is a veritable oasis in the midst of London. Surprisingly large, with a huge array of flowers, plants and some pretty cool knicknacks. The staff are wonderfully helpful and knowledgeable, with the gentleman who helped me actually re-potting my plant for me. I would absolutely recommend it, and if they had been selling coffee and snacks I probably would have stayed all day.
TM, Yelp Review, April 2015
Love this place
Love this place. I have lived near here for three years and they have always been exceptionally helpful with all of my queries from recommending gardeners to helping us find antique furniture! Any visit to Battersea should include a stop at the Flower Station.
Tim, Google Review, April 2015
Professional, accommodating and true artists
I live in the U.S., but have relatives in London. Every time I want to send flowers, I contact the Battersea Flower Station. It takes only a few moments online, and they have a beautiful selection of fresh, natural hand-tied bouquets. Always a huge success with recipients. They're professional, accommodating and true artists. If you want to send flowers to someone in London, I can't think of a better place to go. You will not be disappointed.

Absolutely 5 star service, prices and product
I have just returned from a trip to London to visit my sister and as a thank you I wanted to send her two Yucca trees - I didnt know where to start with this!
I found the Battersea Flower Station on a Google search and then contacted Lisa and John. What a fantastic experience I had with them.
They managed my request from start to finish and nothing I asked them was too much.
Absolutely 5 star service, prices and products.

Lovely place and lovely people
Love Battersea Flower Station!! Can't wait to go again. Lovely place and people. One word... magical!!!
Shawn, Facebook review, March 2015
Absolutely fantastic place
Absolutely fantastic place. We have no green fingers and went to try and buy a plant or two to cheer up our very boring patio garden. John asked us to email pictures of our space , called us on a Sunday to give us some ideas, and helped us choose when we went back to buy. Our garden has been totally transformed - and all for the cost of the plants. We didn't want/couldn't affird to get our space 'designed ' - this was an amazing alternative. Huge thanks - it will give us pleasure every single minute. Hugely charming and knowledgeable- this place is an absolute find - can not recommend highly enough!

You will struggle to find a better service
You will struggle to find a better service in London, not just for florists, but business in general. Will be thoroughly recommending to all I can. Thanks again.

Thank you for such wonderful service!
Ordered flowers at 6pm on a Friday. No other florist would deliver before the Monday. Battersea Flower Station acknowledged the order by email and delivered a beautiful bouquet at 11.10 on the Saturday morning. Price was competitive and delivery was free. THANK YOU FOR SUCH WONDERFUL SERVICE!
Will, Google Review, Feb 2015
Really happy with the service
Fast delivery - flowers were fantastic - fresh and lots of them. Really happy with the service - ordered at 3pm and there were delivered within a couple of hours. Definitely recommend them.
Angie, Google Review, Feb 2015
Brilliant service! Wanted to surprise my partner with flowers while she was in London visiting family (we live abroad). The bouquet was indeed very beautiful and I even received notification from Battersea Flower Station as soon as the flowers had been successfully delivered. Perfect.
Christian, Feb 2015, Google Review
Thank you team Battersea!
I phoned them to place an order from outside the country with only 30 minutes before closing and needed the flowers delivered in record time. Not only did they stay open late to make sure that my order was processed properly but they delivered the MOST stunning arrangement to my friend the very same evening at no additional charge! We're not accustomed to that kind of personalized service in Miami, Florida!! Very impressive! And what an arrangement!! Thank you Team Battersea!!!!
Cynthia, Google Review, Feb 2015
Thank you very much for the great service! The flowers are beautiful 🙂
Evan, By email, Feb 2015
A delightful hidden gem; little would one know from the entrance that there's a veritable meadow hidden a few metres off the road. The Battersea Flower Station is a very peaceful, lovely spot to pick up a bunch of flowers or, even better, a hand-potted plant. With the wisdom of the helpful and friendly staff, it's hard to go wrong, but it is hard to leave. I wanted to stay and peruse their lovely selection. I'll definitely head here again; I got a beautiful jasmine plant in a terracotta pot, which the gent who works there kindly potted for me and gave me plenty of advice as to its care.

Visit this place!
Even if you have no interest in plants, visit this place! It's hidden away behind the railway track, a real secret garden, long and narrow and magical. The staff are happy to give advice and they have plenty of stock. Strongly recommended!

Absolutely awesome find!
Absolutely awesome find! I can't believe I've driven past this gem so many times and never been in. It's so much bigger than it looks from outside; a veritable oasis avenue in Battersea.
The staff are so helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. I highly recommend stopping in for a wander, a pot plant or a beautiful vintage bouquet.

Staff answered my 'idiot' questions without making me feel stupid
Hidden in a tranquil oasis behind Battersea Park Road. Staff are truly passionate about gardening, and are only too happy to help - and answer my "idiot" questions knowledgeably without making me feel stupid. Best of all - they sell compost at 20p a scoop - no more need to buy massive bags of the stuff!

There's something magical about this place
Battersea Flower Station boasts that they are probably the longest little garden centre in London. An abundance of flora and fauna encapsulates this little peaceful spot in Battersea, there was also something magical about this place (I was at the time thought it was a Secret Garden moment!!), full to the brim of exotic plants, herbs and trees plus an on-site florist who made up the most gorgeous bouquet for me.

Really helpful and friendly
Got BFS to put together some ideas for reinvigorating my front garden. All the staff were really helpful and friendly and came up with some really creative ideas. Would definitely recommend!

Helpful advice and free local deliveries
A not so small island of green in little old Battersea that was long overdue. I met John, the owner, who is most generous with his helpful advice – the man has green fingers so we chatted at length about the intricacies of agapanthus whilst he sold me only the soil I needed (rather than a whole bag where the left overs would just clutter my terrace). They also do free local deliveries which is great news to all in the locality.

The best garden centre ever
Simply the best! This is just the best garden centre ever. All beautifully laid out to give you ideas about how to do your own garden, with lovely little touches of eg. vintage pots and furniture. Aside from the fantastic displays of plants big and small, there's a great little shop and a florist and the owners are really knowledgable and happy to advise.

If you visit once, you will want to come back
A magical garden center with the loveliest, most professional staff. I live nearby, so I come here very often. Sometimes I just like to walk through and take the shortcut between Winders Road and the bus stop on Battersea Park road - I love the smell and the sound of the birds. The staff gave me great advice on my balcony plants and now it looks great! I even bought a birthday gift for my dad here (I love the timber birthday cards!). They offer awesome services such as planting your window boxes and selling soil by the scoop if you only need a bit. If you visit once, you will want to come back.

...is more a ‘secret garden’ than a garden centre
The friendliest bunch of staff who can help with anything you need, it really is the most welcoming place.
We Love Local
Any outside space can be an amazing garden.

A Magical Oasis
For people who enjoy shopping in places with character rather than the brightly polished stores in the high streets or retail parks, a visit to the Battersea Flower Station should be on the to-do list this season.
