The Orchid florist has been a significant icon of Dunedin and the Florist industry for many years, it was established in Dunedin in 1947. With Peter Johnston running the business for many, many years himself an icon, but to me a friend and mentor, I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to take this business on in 2020 and what an adventure it has been, adding it to my current floristry business Simply flowers in Musselburgh Dunedin which I have owned since 2011.

I am Donna Hewer and have a wonderful little florist family ,my team has worked in the industry for a combined total of 53 years. The Orchid Florist is well regarded in the New Zealand and world wide florist industry, as well as being the heart and soul of its many clients and their families throughout the years.
