At this year’s RHS Chelsea Young Florist of the Year competition 3 out of the 14 competitors were Strelitzia users.

The brief this year was to create a Spring Wedding Throne, and the official schedule states that fresh flower and/ or plant material must be visually dominant and make up at least 2/3 of the finished design. There was also a nod to designs being eco-friendly.

Here are the competitors and information about their amazing thrones:

Update from Mark


I hope you’re all gearing up for a super busy bank holiday, but not so busy there’s not time for the odd drink or two!

Here at Strelitzia, it’s been a crazy few months, and we re-launched at BFA Vision Business Conference with our brand-new logo, and the first sneak-peak of our new software. It was so great to see so many like-minded florists at what was, the best Vision conference yet.

GDPR Advice


The information and advice available on the GDPR legal requirements coming into play on the 25th May 2018 is enough to make your head spin.

For those of you that don’t know, the GDPR is regulations on how you collect, store and use your customer data. It’s important to note that this is not a new data protection obligation. It replaces and mirrors the previous requirement to have ‘appropriate technical and organisational measures’ under the Data Protection Act 1998 (the 1998 Act).

Important Update for Users


As many of you know, we have been in talks with Florismart regarding a collaboration between the two companies for some time now.

Due to differing priorities, Strelitzia’s Board of Directors have come to the regrettable decision that the company should carry on without Florismart. This is within the best interest of the software, and you, our customers.

It has been a hard decision, but one that we feel is right, and we are now putting everything into rebuilding Strelitzia so that it will be on the cloud, and encompass many new features that you are asking for. We will update you in the New Year as to a time-scale for this.

Mark and Katie are now working entirely for Strelitzia, with Matt here for help and support when you need him.

Thank you for your continued support, and if we don’t speak to you soon, good luck with Christmas and we hope you get a good rest when it’s all over! Please don’t hesitate to send us an email at info@strelitziasoftware.com or give the office a call on 01325 722398 if you have any questions.
