Scottish florists wants to share love of flowers and teach floristry

A newflower shop has opened in Henley. Lorna Dunlop launched the Henley Florist in an alleyway off Hart Street on Thursday last week. The store is in Jimmy Cuba’s old “secret record store”, which closed in August.

Miss Dunlop, who ran a flower shop in Edinburgh for 10 years, decided to move to Henley at the suggestion of her friend David Rodger-Sharp, who owns a jewelry shop in Duke Street.

As well as selling flowers, she will offer lessons in floristry. She said: “I want to share my love of flowers with the community and do some teaching to show others how to make flowers last and what can be done with them.”

Miss Dunlop, who lives in New Street, became interested in floristry after taking some classes herself. She said: “I wasn’t very well so I did a few evening classes and one was floristry and I decided that if I got better that’s what I wanted to do.”
