Pollination flower shop

Family-run flower shop delivers excellent customer service and quality products

Pollination is a family run business that has been pleasing the people of Edinburgh and beyond with their flowers for over 14 years.

Based in the Shandon area at Ashley terrace, husband and wife team Nik and Gill Wilson pour a whole lot of flower love into every bouquet they make up.

Sourcing their flowers from Dutch companies, you won’t find any carnations or gypsophilas in the Pollination range, but you will find stunning contemporary bouquets or traditional ones with a bit of a twist.

Consultations for bridal flowers are offered to ensure you have exactly what you want for your special day. They have an excellent gallery of flowers from previous customers.

Funeral flowers are chosen with a caring nature through difficult times.

Flowers for corporate use can be supplied and delivered for any occasion during the year and throughout the busy Fringe period, Pollination can supply flowers for shows, press launches and parties.

All the bouquets are made up in the shop

With local and friendly service offered every time, you get value you for money with fresh, quality flowers and presentation.

Same day delivery within Edinburgh

Delivery from the online shop (and via telephone) is available in Edinburgh on the same day, making it perfect for those last minute flowers or forgotten anniversaries.

Nik and Gill are very clever in that they offer a reminder service if you want to make a delivery for someone’s birthday every year.

Pollination are also able to send flowers anywhere in the UK overnight, so you know your recipient are getting a good quality, custom-made bouquet at the other end.

They’ll even email you a picture of how the final bouquet looked.

In the shop, there is also a selection of vases for sale, which can be filled with flowers of your choice and ready to present to the lucky recipient. Other gifts include vintage cups and saucers, chocolate bars with humorous covers, candles and other homewares.

We love the flowers they sell in vintage tea cups, which makes a wonderful and unusual present.

Using social media

The staff at Pollination have recently embraced the world of social media and tweet pictures of gorgeous bouquets they make up in the shop and often run competitions on their Facebook page.

There’s certainly a community feel in the shop locals pop in to say hello and admire the latest colourful window display.

Children from the local primary school were recently invited to make mother’s day cards and had them all presented in the shop window.

It’s great to see that there’s still local businesses in Edinburgh with the community spirit and we’ll continue to support independent businesses such as Pollination for all our flower-based needs.

We’re away to set up the regular delivery for important birthdays and future mother’s days.
