Where is the nearest florist to Reading train station?

Are there any good florists in Reading (near the railway station)?

I appreciate this sort of thing is available on the web, but I find that Google Maps results cannot really be trusted (after being sent to Costa's regional distribution warehouse in South London after searching for somewhere to get a coffee). Also, searching for businesses on Google tends to get you results for whoever paid the most money - and most of them tend to be directories with no real information in them.

What I'm looking for is for someone to say "Yep, this place exists, I pass it on the way to work and it's five minutes' walk from the railways station.

See, I'm meeting my girlfriend on Sunday who is a skiing holiday with all of her female friends at the moment. I'd like to surprise her with a nice bouquet of flowers when she gets off the train, but I'm not familiar with Reading, so I don't want to leave this to chance.

You can buy nice flowers in the Marks and Spencers inside the train station. There are often florists outside on Saturday, or if you walk into town there is a florist on Broad Street by Cath Kidson.

mild deer, the Green Parlour is over five miles from the station...

The Broad Street one is here about 7 minutes walk from the station, and although expensive (I think so, anyway) does have some nice flowers sometimes.
