This Titania's Garden[a], a florist in Marylebone. The name is taken from the queen of fairies from A Midsummer Night's Dream.

I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine:
There sleeps Titania sometime of the night,
Lull'd in these flowers with dances and delight;
And there the snake throws her enamell'd skin,
Weed wide enough to wrap a fairy in:

William Shakespeare, "A Midsummer Night's Dream", Act 2, Scene 1[b]
