About us

Bunches is a family business, originally founded by Erik and Sandra Hoving in 1989. Back then, Bunches was a small flower stall set up under a 3 metre by 4 metre umbrella in the Four Seasons shopping centre in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire. From the little flower stall Erik and Sandra sold great quality bouquets, offering a service with a smile and the stall was a great success.

Erik discovered that you could put flowers into boxes and despatch them nationwide to customers, using Royal Mail as the transport link. He proposed this idea to the Post Office, who enthusiastically agreed to the idea and consequently Bunches began as a flowers by post company in January 1990, operating out of a factory in Kirkby-in-Ashfield (quite different to the flower stall in the shopping centre).

Orders were taken over the Post Office counter and then telephoned through to the Bunches office.

In 1992 Bunches expanded to all Post Offices nationwide and the direct mail side of the business began, which was such a success, Bunches took on more local staff to cope with the demand. During this time, Bunches also began offering chocolates with the flowers, a first in the UK flower trade!

In 2001, after out-growing the original factory, Bunches moved into a purpose built premises with state of the art Sales Office, Production and Despatch facilities, based in Newstead Village, Nottinghamshire and have just completed a 1 million extension, doubling the size of our production floor space and adding new offices.

Our flowers are purchased from suppliers with whom we have a long standing relationship because of their commitment to quality and longevity of their flowers. We import our flowers from across the globe, wherever they are fresh and grown in perfect conditions.

The size of the business over the years has changed considerably but the heart of the business is exactly the same. We are all about delivering great quality flowers that make our customers all over the UK happy, and offering a fantastic friendly service that means our customers love to deal with us again and again... it's just like the flower stall... just a bit bigger!

Many of our employees have been with Bunches for several years and are key to giving you commitment to service and quality and we value their input and hard work in the growth of the company.

Since Bunches was founded we've now delivered over 2.5 million bouquets throughout the UK and for every bouquet that is received a smile is created, so over the years that's a lot of happiness...
