Ixia Flowers in Manchester

Welcome to the world of Ixia Flowers, a boutique florist based in Manchester. A beautiful shop in Urmston, Greater Manchester in the heart of the local community, from which they sell a stunning range of hand-tied bouquets, houseplants and eco glass vases. Keeping with the times and the demand for subscription flowers, Ixia Flowers has a larger facility in Altrincham in neighbouring Trafford, from which they hand package boxed flowers for delivery throughout the UK.


Ixia Flowers started many years ago in the markets of the North West. They imported flowers and sold them in markets all over the region gaining a loyal customer base and a reputation for quality flowers. After acquiring premises and retaining the same ethos, a lovely selection of quality blooms, competitive prices and occasionally, if you’re lucky, a coffee with cream!


Emily (the events director) joined the business this year. A trained florist with a background in events, Ixia has given her the opportunity to blend her passions; A love of the job, being out and about, on the road with a packed flower van and a sat nav, taking our flowers to corporate events, flower shows, artisan markets, workshops and even photo shoots! Hear more from Emily and the Ixia journey in the video below.



The flower shop in Urmston, Manchester.

Ixia Flowers consists of a small but rapidly expanding team of florists, each with a different specialist area, commercial and retail enterprise, a compliance and quality manager and web design and IT specialists. We are a close and hardworking team with a flexible attitude to work, lots of energy and drive and an endless supply of chocolate biscuits! (always needed).

As a company and team of florists, Ixia design and send out boxes of flowers based on three key themes: Ixia Brights, Ixia Whites and Ixia Mix. They have therefore developed a colour led aesthetic with a focus on seasonal flowers, key colour schemes and a looser, more informal tie. As florists, Ixia Flowers draw inspiration from different areas to suit our colour palettes. The soft pastels of summer beachfront houses inspired the pastel shades in the Ixia Brights Summer collection, while the timeless Ixia Whites range has been designed in close collaboration with customers and their desire to see a monochromatic colour scheme with an emphasis on high quality unusual foliage.

At Ixia, our belief that beautiful, fresh, different flowers should be readily available to everyone underpins all that we do – whether that be a corporate event, pop up shop, wedding or Ixia box, we strive to introduce unusual blooms, textures and combinations to excite and inspire our customers.


The Royal Horticultural Society.

A very proud moment for the Ixia team, gaining the RHS silver medal for our exhibit ‘Floral Royalty’ at RHS Tatton Flower Show. Building on this great achievement they are excited to continue to support RHS shows throughout the country in 2019.

This was the first summer on the flower show circuit for the team and they have big plans for next year. Being a bit green they had no idea the chaos that ensues when the infamous bell is rung to signal the sell-off during the final hour on the final day of a flower show! Quickly learning at the Tatton Park flower show this year, they even found a buyer for their amazing 6ft high giant floral throne!


Ixia and Florist Up My Street.

Florist Up My Street really appealed to us as we are a boutique florist, passionate about wonderful flowers in the heart of a community. As Florist Up My Street seeks to provide a platform for local businesses amongst a wider online community, with an emphasis on florist led services, we were really excited to become a part of what they do and stand for.” Emily, Ixia Flowers, Manchester.


Everyone loves a happy customer.

“I have bought many bouquets of flowers from Ixia. The arrangement and quality of the flowers have been the best and have lasted the longest when on display at home, so much longer compared to many other places I have bought flowers from over the years.
