Welcome to Collins the Florist
There has been a flower shop on this site for over 70 years but we Collins have been here for nearly 40 years. The shop itself occupies a very large corner site opposite Southern Cemetery - one of the largest cemeteries in Europe. Years ago it catered mainly for the cemetery and funeral trade but now the majority of business comes from corporate work with many multi national companies using our services in the Manchester area.
Over the years we have been involved in the TV industry designing work for many programmes for both the BBC and Granada with a long ongoing relationship with Coronation Street.
Our creative design team are highly skilled, experienced & enthusiastic and love working with new varieties of flowers to create fantastic contemporary designs for all occasions.
One of our strengths is the variety of flowers in stock at all times - we buy British flowers in season but we also buy directly from Aalsmeer, Holland - the largest flower auction in the world where you can buy almost any flower at any time of the year.
