The Olive Grove Design Team Florists Cardiff
Florist Couture

In November 1994. ex model and PR girl Debbie Witts arrived from London to open Cardiff's first "designer florist". Uninspired and bored with the lack of exotic flowers and plants available in the Capital, she opened The Olive Grove Design Team in Llandaff, Cardiff , named after her beautiful late mum Olive Joy..".my motivation..."  In April 2014 we moved to new premises in Radnor Road in Cardiff, ( just 100 yards from Thompson’s Park Gates, up Romilly Place)

Importing exotic species from Australia, South Africa and Kenya, the Olive Grove quickly establised a reputation for quality and excellence, and within a few years accompanied by her young talented team of designers, her second shop in Whitchurch was opened.

Aware of our carbon footprint today, Debbie sources as much locally grown flowers and foliage as possible, buying directly from the Tregothnan Estate in Cornwall for lush foliage and seasonal varieties like  stocks, alstromeria,daffodils etc.

Approached by Olga Politzi (international interior designer sister of Sir Rocco Forte) to design for Wales' first 5 star hotel - The St.David's Hotel and Spa in Cardiff Bay - her stunning contemporary designs of 2ft high french tulips,black roses and african elephant leaves, and her passion for the art of floral design, saw her hired as the in-house florist.

Always striving for perfection and attention to detail, her innovative organza wrapped sumptuous hand-tied bouquets and sparkly handbags of flowers have been enjoyed by many celebrities and tv presenters and even HRH Queen Elizabeth!!

The Olive Grove Design Team's flowers have adorned the pages of many glossy magazines such as Hello!, Wedding and Homes, and even The Daily Telegraph for cutting edge design.  We are also the only florist in Wales to have been featured in The Daily Telegraph's Top 10 Floral Designers in Britain for their cutting edge design, alongside The Queens florist Kenneth Turner and In Water's Robert Hornsby.

Long may it continue.......!!!

Flowers with love
