Oldham siblings' florist business is blooming fine

The florists in Gateway Crescent recently had an extension to meet the demands of customers’ orders.

The young duo are also celebrating their first Valentines Day in business and are celebrating the fact that they have hit over 24,000 followers on Instagram.

Millie and Ben

Ben said: “We have opened up to a new audience and made flowers cool for the younger generation. We have lots of Instagram followers and they are mostly young people.

“We cannot believe how busy we have been and how the business has grown since March last year.

“Our customers absolutely love our designs.”

Amelia Rose Floral Couture is a family run business with the Turners working around the clock to design and deliver the beautiful bouquets.

Mum Kathy, dad Anthony and big sister Amy also work there, not forgetting Sid the dog who spends his days at the shop.

Ben said: “We all work together and that’s fantastic. Millie has been a florist since she was 16 and is super talented, the bouquets are stylish and classy.”

The business delivers to homes across Greater Manchester and customers can order via the website.

Ben who left his job as an accountant to join his sister in business, said: “It’s our first Valentines Day and we have been busy, we have had to turn off the orders online.

“We can’t believe how the company has grown since lockdown. We have four delivery drivers and we are always on the go.”

The flowers are imported from Colombia and Ecuador to homes across Oldham.

Ben added: “The flowers are of the highest quality and we use the best. That reflects in the feedback we have had and with Mother’s Day the next event on the calendar there’s only one way to go.”
