Jane Packer – the florist of choice for many stars – has now become something of a household name. This sleek Marylebone store fronts her equally successful school of floristry, for evening and one-day courses, where students sit with their clippers and wire learning the tricks of the trade. There’s a range of own-brand candles and toiletries, unusual plants in modern containers and vases, ready-assembled arrangements in boxes and a selection of Packer’s books. What’s more, bouquets of flowers – or the bestselling rose hatboxes – can be ordered for same- or next-day delivery, along with top-quality chocolates and champagne, if you want to push the boat out. A classic and dependable choice.
