About OASIS® Home & Hobby

How it all began?

60 years ago Vernon Smithers invented OASIS® Floral Foam the green sponge like material that holds water and enables flowers to be inserted into it. Prior to its invention florists and flower arrangers used chicken wire and newspaper, clay or foliage’s as a base for floral arrangements. This wonder product revolutionised commercial and recreational floral design.

How did we grow?

We started to develop a portfolio of products many of which would not have been possible without the invention of floral foam. All of these products enabled design applications and commercial opportunities previously unavailable. With a growing reputation of providing innovative products for florists, flower arrangers and hobbyists we started to develop and introduce ranges of complementary sundry products. Quickly becoming a one stop shop for everything floral product related some of our ranges crossed over into the home, leisure and garden markets creating further opportunities for us and our hobbyist customers.

Why OASIS® Home and Hobby?

With such a diverse range of products we regularly received requests from hobbyists who were unable to access many of our products. We wanted to make it easy for hobbyists and crafters to access our products and realised an OASIS® Home and Hobby web shop as a way of achieving this. We hope that this web shop becomes a hub for creative people who want to access brand leading products and inspirational ideas that will enable them to create wonderful floral arrangements, gifts and craft projects.
