Such a wonderful service and beautiful flowers. I wanted flowers delivered to a friends grave for her birthday. I live 8 hours drive away. Kim at Starlings was wonderful. Even sent me photos of the flowers at the grave and rang me too. A lovely lady, wonderful service and beautiful flowers.
Thank you.

I am so grateful for the quality and service I have received. I have been away on holiday abroad and wanted to send some flowers to my mum for her birthday. Kim was so lovely to talk to and made the process so easy. She reassured me that they would look lovely and that my mum would love them. She sent me photos of the bouquet before delivery and kept me informed as to when they would be delivered. They were absolutely stunning and they were a wonderful surprise for my mum.
I will definitely be using Starlings in the future.
Thank you so much

We could not recommend this wonderful florist enough for the arrangements they created for our wedding. Kim and Dee were so knowledgeable and passionate, and they made the whole planning process so much fun! Thank you so much for being a part of our special day, and putting our vision into life. We can’t thank you enough, Mr & Mrs Micklethwaite.

Ordered a bouquet from Starlings for my wife’s birthday. Obviously I don’t know too much about flowers but I do know that my wife likes tulips.
The very helpful and professional lady in the shop (Sorry I don’t know your name but I am think your the owner) explained what she could do and how nice it would look.
The bouquet arrived today, early as promised and my wife loved them.
They did not disappoint, a huge bouquet of tulips with other decorative foliage.
Overall, an excellent local florist, very helpful and well priced, thank you.
I did take a photo of the bouquet to add to the review but I couldn’t attach it. You’ll have to take my word for it. They look lovely!

Angela - 08/01/2023

Amazing service!! Placed an order regarding my friend that lost her dad and the lady on the phone was so lovely and understanding and managed to get the flowers sent the same day. My friend is so pleased with them. Can't thank you enough I really can't. Highly highly recommend this lovely florist

Dan - 30/12/2022

A lovely family-run business. Fruit and vegetables are always top quality and mostly local. The Staff are always ready to help and attentive. Nothing is too much trouble.
The flowers are excellent quality and the staff are very helpful and compassionate. They were so helpful recently when I needed to order flowers for a friend's funeral. Made it as easy for me as they could. Forever grateful to them. 

Rachel - 25/09/2022

I would like to thank the lovely ladies at Starlings for the most wonderful flowers for my mum and dads funeral. Kim is such a wonderful lady who has so much empathy and really cares about how you are feeling . To see the special and personal care she takes when dealing with whoever and whatever occasion is heart warming. Always a pleasure to deal with Starlings . Thank you

Julie - 22/06/2022

To Kim and all the team I wanted to thank you for the fantastic service you I received whilst organising flowers for my Father-in-laws funeral. Nothing was too much trouble for you and your team, the funeral flowers were wonderful, with care taken to include everything that was special to each family member. We brought the funeral flowers home and put them in the garden so mum could see them, A week later with snow, frost and rain the flowers from starlings are looking as fresh as the day they arrived. Flowers from other florists are well past their best. I recently received gifts of beautiful flowers that family ordered from Starlings and I was very pleased with them thank you. Perfect

Lisa - 05/04/2022

Thank you for an absolutely incredible service, very polite and consiensous, even let me change my arrangement before delivery which I had specified a timeframe for and they delivered when they said would. Absolutely made mine and my wife's day!

Grant - 29/01/2022

Wonderful family-run shop in the heart of Swaffham. Been here for years. Take a pride in their fruit and veg, and their flowers are exceptional. Asked them to deliver Christmas flowers for my mum in a care home at very short notice and they came up trumps with the most fantastic bouquet she's ever seen. An absolute gem!


David - 31/12/2021

Hello. I just wanted to say thank you for the beautiful flowers that you delivered on Saturday. My mother loves them. The care that you had taken to select and arrange them was very apparent. I have bought from other local florists and none have shown such an eye for detail. I thought that the coloured paper was a particularly nice touch. Thanks again

Jake - 24/08/2021

Hi Kim,

Starlings of Swaffham is the kind of local shop every high street should have.  Over the past year, through difficult circumstances, they have consistently provided excellent, personal service of the highest standard with kindness and compassion. Their flowers are personally chosen with the recipient in mind and always reliably delivered. We must support this kind of business to keep our communities alive.  Thank you to all the team of Starlings for beautiful flowers and service.  Also love your local honey and apple juice!!

Sally - 11/11/2020

Dear Rachel, Kim and all the staff at Starlings,

Thank you so much for the amazing bouquet of flowers you arranged and delivered for my sister’s 25th wedding anniversary, yesterday.

The whole bouquet was stunning and the silver wicker heart was a brilliant finishing touch!  My sister and brother-in-law were absolutely thrilled with it.  Yellow roses and Scottish thistles were in my sisters bouquet on their wedding day and it meant such a lot to have them in another bouquet celebrating 25 years later!!

They had a lovely day together and your bouquet was the icing on the cake!! 

Many thanks to you all for your efforts!  From the initial first email I sent to you, to the lovely person delivering the bouquet, you have all been so professional, helpful and accommodating!

You’re all bringing a lot of happiness to people and doing a brilliant job!!  Keep up the good work!

With kind regards

Hilary - 05/11/2020


........ I have never ever been the recipient of such a fabulous and huge bouquet of flowers!  So, the surprise and delight you have given me makes it almost worth being 70 - (since that was inevitable anyway!), it has certainly softened the blow
Thank you so much, they are now safely transferred to the largest vase I own, looking stunning, and set to bring me days of joy!

Jan - 30/09/20

Bary - 27/06/20

Good afternoon Kim,
I spoke to my sister over the weekend and she was so very happy with the Christmas basket- the chocolate/fruit combination, choice of fruits and the overall obvious care you took with the presentation and delivery; the hand written card…..
So thank you. It is so helpful to have a quality item go to those you love, when we live so far apart!

Mary - 13/01/20

This is a thank you for our bouquet. The service was excellent. Mandy was delighted and surprised by the standard and quality. We are both very happy and will use your services again. Once again thank you

Whow, having just moved to Swaffham we discovered "Starlings". We have found staff fantastic, friendly and helpful. Quality of fruit and vegetables (local suppliers) superb and the taste unbelievable. However, three weeks running have been amazed at the extreme high standard of bouquets, floral tributes, window displays. They have been created with care, imagination, and really outstanding. Don't have any doubts as to quality, speak to them regarding your requirements, whether fruit and vegetables, or something extra special involving flowers, we hope you will be impressed as we are.

"Starlings have contributed so very much to my enjoyment at living in Swaffham! I was overjoyed when I discovered this wonderful shop. It is run with the true old fashioned principles of friendly helpful service and a real pride in the service and goods that they provide. So unique in this world of supermarkets! It is a joy to go in there and it is always buzzing with life! This 60 year old business has superb florists and the flowers are unbelievably fresh. They are sourced from Lincolnshire and direct from the growers in Holland. They take pride in offering local produce such as Asparagus, Strawberries and raspberries not to mention fabulous local grown tomatoes, skalds and greens. They also have the pick of luxury foods from abroad such as wonderful dates and apricots as well as superb olive oil and honey to mention a few. They strenght is in having the best! Swaffham is very lucky to have wonderful Starlings florists and greenrocers in its midst!

JSBach / Yell.com review - 16/06/2015

My Mother lives near Swaffham and I live in America.  I used to use one of the international flower delivery services to send flowers for Mother's day and for her birthday.  They were usually OK, but one time the flowers were not particularly good and I had paid quite a lot of money, so I thought, "Why don't I just call a florist in Swaffham?" (After all, international phone rates have been quite cheap for several years now.)  I have never regretted that decision, and have been using Starling's to deliver flowers for several years now.  Kim knows me and she is always very helpful.  Best of all, when I speak to my Mother, she always tells me how lovely and fresh the flowers are. 

The last two years Kim has included a fruit basket for Mother's day, and my mother told me recently it was the best fruit she has ever had -- every piece was delicious and perfectly ripe.  I am grateful that there is such a good florist like Starling's in the Swaffham area and I have no intention of shopping anywhere else.  Also, I would rather support a local business than some big anonymous internet company.  You never know what you'll get with them, and I prefer to deal with a real live person who knows me.

I would like to thank Starlings of Swaffham for my beautiful flowers. I asked for a specific design which was matched perfectly, in fact it was better!! The flowers used were top quality with the colours so radiant. The price was also half the price of what I was quoted at a well-known florist chain. I will absolutely be using Starlings again because of the 5* personal service provided. Thank you.
I love the flowers thank you.

Clare Biggie

The best and only florist I would use they go out there way to help you so thank you all that work there x



Dear Girls at Starlings, Thank you so much for Vicky’s lovely wedding flowers, the church looked fantastic. Vicky was so pleased she had a terrific day and ended up playing football in her wedding dress.. !! Thank you once again for the excellent flowers.

“Dear Starlings staff, You have just delivered this lovely “bunch” to me, which I am so thrilled, with that I want to try to send you a picture of it. Many thanks for all your work!”

Diana Fullbrook

Many thanks for helping arrange the bridal bouquet. As Danish tradition it was the grooms task to provide a bouquet. A daunting task that was made far easier with your help and guidance. His bride adored the flowers and enhanced a beautiful day. Many thanks Wendy.
