Interflora Celebrate 90 Years of Flower Power

by Bethany Day on May 24, 2013

On the 30th May 1923, the world’s largest and most popular flower delivery network was born. This week Interflora celebrates its 90th anniversary by looking back at past achievements and to the future too.

Interflora was born in 1923 after the idea of telegraphing orders from one florist to another came over from America. Joe Dobson, a florist from Glasgow, and Carl Engleman, a nurseryman from Essex, were responsible for starting what is now, 90 years on, the most successful florist network in the UK and Ireland.
