Flowers Vasette are honoured to be invited to amplify such an important and publicly recognised landmark.

We are overjoyed to be entrusted with the iconic and International recognised Flinders Street Station location. We are pleased to bring together local growers and many of our long-standing suppliers to hero locally grown seasonal plants and flowers in an installation like no other” said Cherrie Miriklis-Pavlou, Founder and Creative Director, Flowers Vasette.

These plants will be sourced from Victorian growers and from Beechmont Garden Retreat, Flowers Vasette’s own expansive formal and rambling gardens, and will include a wide variety of native and seasonal flowers and foliage demonstrating the capabilities and the beauty of Victoria’s Flora.
