Rainbow Floral Sundries was started in the 1980's by Harry & Jean Hawkes selling artificial flowers from a small van. Over time Harry progressed through larger vehicles until acquiring a 'nursery' unit at Netley; eventually moving to the present address, then retiring at the end of 1990.

The business was then purchased by its current owner, Paul Bulpit, and continued to grow - opening hours and product ranges were extended & a truck was now needed as a full-time salesman joined; the business moved into a larger unit, next door. A second van & salesperson came on board to further extend coverage of the South's florists, and in 1996 the firm became a limited company by acquiring the stock, staff & assets of Power's (CF) Ltd., of Chandler's Ford, which lead to acquiring a third van.

By then, the adjoining warehouse had been taken & the firm now has over 5500 square feet of space over two floors.

The website was launched in March 2005 & in 2006 we acquired the next adjoining warehouse - we now occupy the whole block!
