Thankyou so much for the beautiful flowers you did for my sister in laws funeral. They were exactly what I asked for.

With reference to the above review, what a shame Mr Welch failed to get the facts right. The flowers were ordered by himself to be delivered Christmas week,which is one of our busiest times of the year. Four extra delivery drivers are employed this week to ensure flowers are delivered as quickly and professionally as possible. The delivery was made by 11.40am, but unfortunately the recipient was not at home. The driver put a card in the door to explain that the flowers had been left at the neighbouring pub. We could have taken the flowers back to the shop, but thought the recipient would not want to drive to Rye to collect them. We then had a very rude Mr Welch on the telephone, telling us how we had ruined the day. I trust his mother was satisfied with the flowers she received, since there was no complaint about the quality of the arrangement. After thirty years of running a successful business, our customers have always been satisfied with our service.

Tips - Caring for your flowers once they are delivered


Placing your flowers in vase half to two thirds full with lukewarm water, will help closed buds to start opening.

  • Be careful when un-wrapping a hand-tied bouquet as it is delivered in a water bubble to keep the flowers fresh.
  • Arranging your flowers in cold water should be avoided as this can reduce the their life in the vase.
  • Avoid puting flowers in metal or aluminium containers - glass is ideal. Keep your flowers in a cool location, away from draughts, direct heat or sunlight. Arrange once unwrapped
  • Your flowers may take up to 24 hours after being placed in water to reach their full potential.
  • Strip off all excess foliage and leaves below the water level to reduce any harmful bacteria within the water.
  • Bacteria can block the stem and stop the flowers taking up the water.unwrap. Flowers like their stems trimmed. So, trim them, at an angle with a knife (rather than scissors) by an inch or so. When trimming stems, always cut at an angle of roughly 45degrees; this increases the surface area allowing your flowers to absorb more water.
  • If a Rose starts to droop at the head, re-cut the stem, wrap the head in paper to support it upright and plunge 5cms of the stem into boiling water for about 30seconds. Cut the stem again and place in deep cold water for two hours.trim

Most orders are accompanied by a sachet of cut flower food which will encourage buds to open and help to prolong the life and beauty of your flowers. Top up regularly with water and flower food, removing any fading flowers. Ensure the floristry foam used in arrangements is moist and topped up daily; this helps to prolong the life and vibrancy of your arrangements.
