What We Offer
Transform the front of your house, flat, doorway, balcony, roof terrace or business with some Flower Pot Fairy magic. At Flower Pot Fairy we offer bespoke flower pots and window boxes, predominantly in the North London area. The service includes a full consultation where we can share our expertise on choosing flowers and colour schemes as well as what size and style of planter to go for.
Once these have been agreed all work is carried out offsite to minimise mess and disruption. All pots & planters are prepped beforehand. Planters are given drainage holes and are then filled with a good quality fortified soil enriched with slow release plant food to assist with the ongoing maintenance of the plants. Clay feet or window box trays to protect sills / aid drainage are also available on request. On completion, planters are hand delivered and positioned. Flower Pot Fairy will share the names of all the plants used in the making of their bespoke planter, with detail of all bulbs when presenting the Autumn ones. Clear care instructions can also be shared at this point!
So whether it’s a re-vamp of an existing pot or window box, or starting from scratch, Flower Pot Fairy is on hand to help and advise.
We most widely use frost resistant, lightweight & durable recycled plastic planters where possible. These come in a range of lengths / sizes depending on requirements and can be in a more traditional terracotta or slate colour through to a punchy olive green or aubergine that can really set off your flowers and offer an interesting and dynamic contrast.
Genuine terracotta or glazed pots & planters can also be sourced but will incur an extra cost. We look forward to the challenge of finding you what you most want that both fits the setting and your choice of flowers.
Whilst Flower Pot Fairy can make and create flower pots & window boxes throughout the year, there are really two distinct seasons to consider when thinking about your planting.
In the Autumn, planting will include winter flowering plants such as: wallflowers, winter flowering pansies, viola, cyclamen, trailing ivy, primroses, cineraria and primulas. In addition to this will be bulbs that may include anything from dwarf narcissus, daffodils, snake head fritillary, crocus, dwarf iris and grape hyacinth. Planters created in the autumn will offer greenery and colour throughout the winter before offering a firework explosion of bulb activity come the Spring.
Come April / May time, Flower Pot Fairy will be on hand to remove your now tired displays and replenish with colourful and exciting Summer bedding that will provide lush colour and pleasure through until September time. Summer bedding may include pansies, geraniums, petunia, diascia, trailing lobelia , cineraria & trailing ivy.
Larger ground pots may include hydrangea, heuchera and other summer bedding plants. Some of these larger shrubs & plants will over winter.
Save money with our Flower Pot Fairy subscription service that will guarantee you with flowers throughout the year. The service includes two consultations (Autumn / Spring) followed by two plantings with free delivery of finished planters.
