Lily of the Valley's Season is Here: Lily of the Valley Day is May 1st.

The first Lilies of the Valley this season is finally coming to the shop today.  
What an amazing perfume these little white flowers emit... stop by the shop in the next few weeks as we will be celebrating Lily of the Valley Week.  

It is a tradition to give small sprigs of Lily of the Valley to your loved ones on Lily of the Valley day.  And it is said that good luck will come to whoever received the lilies of the valley that day.  In France, lily of the valley is sold everywhere on the street corners on May 1st... how romantic!  

Life gets busy, but remember, we all need to take a moment to stop once in a while to smell the Lilies of the Valley.  You won't regret it.

Administrative Assistant's Day April 24 (Wed)

If you are thankful for the hard work and charming smile that admin assistants bring to your office, then Wednesday April 24th is the day to say "Thank you", and what better way to do so than with flowers!

Queensberry will have plenty of desk/office-friendly arrangements available for you to pick from during your lunch break.

Feel free to call us to place an order for a pick up if you are planning to give flowers that day!


Gerbera Week @ Queensberry April 16 - 19

It's getting nicer outside and we feel that the flowers that best represent how we feel this time of the year - happy, vibrant and carefree - are GERBERA daisies!  

So we are celebrating Gerbera Week at Queensberry...  a week full of cheery gerbera daisies, and yes, we have potted gerberas for you to grow at home, too.  

Come check out our Gerbera Week at Queensberry between April 16 (Tue) - 19 (Fri).  

[Gerbera Facts]
An ornamental plant from the sunflower family (Asteraceae). Gerberas were named in honor of the German naturalist Traugott Gerber.  Gerbera is the fifth most important cut flower in the world (after roses, carnations, chrysanthemums and tulips).

Meaning of Gerbera daisies:  Innocence, Purity, Cheerfulness, a classic symbol of beauty

International Women's Day is on Friday March 8th!

Did you know that in many countries, International Women's Day is an official holiday?  And in these countries, it is customary for men and children to give women in their lives to give flowers and small gifts on this day?  

We serve many customers from different countries, so every year, we welcome people like a gentleman buying bouquets of spring flowers for his mom and sisters or a lady buying our Mini Berry Bouquets for her colleagues.  In some countries it is equivalent to Mother's Day, so it feels so festive with all the thoughtful gift givers coming to our shops.

Why not join the celebration and show your mom, wife, girlfriend, daughter, colleagues etc. how much you care!  We will be waiting for you with lots of spring flower bouquets!  

Both of our shops will be open as usual.
For deliveries or pre-orders, give us a call in advance at 604-339-3528.
