Company description
Ruby Genuinely loves & is inspired by flowers, their fragility, texture, form & colour all of which shapes her style today. Ruby’s love of all flowers & foliages goes back to spending time in the garden with her parents & Pa when very young.the smell of sweet peas, geraniums & marigolds can still trace her back to those summer days way back when... A ‘Potted’ History by Ruby After many years of living in London, Australia and then back to London again, slogging away doing a variety of jobs, I would always find myself drawn to flower shops, whether peering in the windows, browsing or buying, I always left happy amongst the moss, the magnolia branches, berried ivy & rosemary.

All was going well & then with loss of local parking, we launched our small but charming online shop, which you loved... this helped open Ruby Flowers up to a wider audience & then, with an unsustainable rent increase it was sadly time to end and move on to pastures new. Time to retreat & rethink, Neil & I found an amazing Citroen Van, which we converted into a mobile shop &
