Muck Floral & General

A florist, cafe and homeware store in one. Florist Sophie Wolanski and baker and shopkeeper Carter Were’s design destination in the Auckland suburb of Grey Lynn is big on locally sourced freshness and low on pretension.

Wolanski prefers her bouquets to be ordered in advance to minimise wastage; her structured-but-natural aesthetic is also in demand as installations for events and photo shoots.

Were’s sprouted bread is served as open sandwiches in Muck Floral and General’s small seating area or as takeaway; she also sells a winning range of hand-crafted homeware that is well worth a browse while you wait.
