A land filled with roses so sweet and violets so blue, where birds are chirping and rabbits are hopping. Queensberry designers work diligently, creating precious and beautiful bouquets to fill the shops, providing those busy city dwellers a place to stop and smell the roses. Each floral creation unique with the Secret Garden’s magical touch brings smiles and joy to the faces of your loved ones.
