Magnolia the Florist

In 2003 Dean established Magnolia the Florist and our aim has never changed. We provide original, inspirational and unrivalled quality flowers, designed around your needs and to always exceed expectation.

Kettering has been Magnolia the Florist’s home since we opened our flagship store here back in 2009. We have loved becoming part of the local community! Centrally located on Market Street, you'll find us opposite The Yards

With fresh flowers coming into our store daily, you can order online or by telephone by 3pm and have flowers delivered to Kettering and the surrounding area the same day.

Magnolia the Florist Owner Dean has over 23 years’ experience in floristry. He grew up in the local Kettering area, discovering a natural flair for creativity and design at school. Dean fell in love with floristry when he had the chance to do work experience with a local florist, and his future career bloomed! After graduating from college with a degree in Floristry and a few years building up experience in the industry, Dean jumped in at the deep end and founded Magnolia the Florist in 2003.
