BJ Richards serves the retail trade throughout Devon & East Cornwall with wholesale flowers, house plants, garden plants and sundries. We have many generations experience in everything from weddings, funerals, festivals, demonstrations, events and general shop trade. Based in Cargreen near Saltash in Cornwall we have daily lorry deliveries covering every major area Monday to Friday and the warehouse is open for pre-arranged collections seven days a week.
We grow a vast array of fresh flowers and foliage at our 10 acre nursery as well as supporting a network of other local growers here in Cornwall, the Isles of Scilly and right across England, some of who grow exclusively for us. We are constantly looking for new growers and products here in the UK to add to our range of ‘Home Grown’ flowers which is already one of the largest in Devon, Cornwall and the south west.
Like other flower wholesalers though we also need to import a lot of flowers. We use the Dutch flower auctions in Rijnsburg, Aalsmeer & Westland although we do try to import flowers direct from the source and thus use some of the top flower producers all over the world cutting costs, saving the environment and adding to the longevity of the products. We are very proud to be the exclusive supplier of Colombia’s number one Carnation, Spray Carnation and Rose grower and we also import from Ecuador’s top Rose farm as well as several of the best farms in Israel. In addition we import fresh foliages from Italy and recently took our first ever delivery of flowers from India, Peru & Nicaragua!
We always try very hard to supply the freshest flowers possible often picking to order and buying to order which we can achieve with deliveries to us every day of the week. Our delivery lorries are all temperature controlled and we have four separate storage facilities here enabling us to keep every flower at their optimum storage temperature.
As well as what we grow and import we also offer our customers a state of the art Webshop. Based in Holland it offers a daily assortment of over 2700 different flowers, over 3000 different sundries and gifts, over 1750 different plants and over 150 different pre-made bouquets. We work hard with our Dutch partners to keep the quality of the products and service as high as possible.
As well as all of the above we also offer our customers a wealth of knowledge and helpful services like our colour matching service where we aim to take all of the pressure out of getting the right selection of matching flowers for things like weddings.
