About our Flowers

We are very lucky at Jennifleurs to be so close to the port of Harwich. A vast majority of the flowers entering the UK come via ferry from the Dutch flower auctions through Harwich port. Being situated so close to the port means we receive our flowers at the freshest they can possibly be.  We never display our cut flowers outside on the pavement as this means they are open to elements that could reduce their lasting quality. Flowers hate draughts or fluctuations in temperature and should never be displayed outside! Our flowers are sourced daily direct from Holland and stored in our temperature controlled cabinet, this ensures Jennifleurs customers always receive flowers at their best. Because we are a busy well established florist our flower stock turnover is rapid meaning we never have old or wilting stock. Every bloom you purchase from Jennifleurs comes with a 7 day guarantee. All we ask if you do experience any problems is to let us know immediately. We would far rather have the opportunity to deliver you something else than to lose you as a valuable customer.

You will see from our design list that we deliver flowers in and around Colchester for all occasion - Anniversary flowers, Birthday flowers, flowers for a new baby, flowers to say sorry, flowers to say I love you, flowers to express your sympathies or flowers just because you are thinking of a special someone. At Jennifleurs we are extremely proud of the fact that every single image shown on our website has been made by one of our florists at Jennifleurs. All our product images have been photographed at our shop premises and are not the result of fancy photography or studio enhancements. Whilst this may not afford us crystal clear photographs you can rest assured if you order flowers from Jennifleurs Florist Colchester the item you receive will actually resemble the picture shown. Many flower buying facilities, including the well known names like Interflora, enhance their product images to make them look much larger or contain more flowers than they really do meaning you could end up being very disappointed with your purchase. Always insist on seeing examples of a florists own work before making a purchase and rather than dealing with a middleman like Interflora or Eflorist who deduct a commission before either sending your flowers by post or passing your order on to a florist second hand, always make your flower purchase directly with a real florist like ourselves.

You will notice from our gallery of special funeral tributes that this is an area we particularly specialise in. I hope you will agree that our bespoke floral tributes are far superior to most.
