Wilting flowers – I purchased tulips from here that wilted within 2 hours of putting them in a vase. While the selection and presentation look impressive within the store, quality is subpar.
Stay Away – If you enjoy flowers and expect them to be alive upon delivery then do not use this florist. I can appreciate a tight budget, but when that's not even a question how hard is it to deliver flowers that are ALIVE!
My Dad sent me an orchid thru his local florist in Florida and the service they used to send flowers picked these guys! What a waste. I felt so bad for my Dad since the thought was such a nice one (I had just had a baby and he wanted to do something nice because he was too sick to travel to see the baby).
The first orchid they sent was half dead and there was no way to drain it. Everyone knows you mist orchids daily and then run a bit of water thru them every week or two. Since the it couldn't be drained my mother called the shop and asked them how to water it properly. The man on the phone said "fill it with water and then tip the plant upside down to drain it. Do that once a week." So we did, and then it completely died.
I called and explained the situation very nicely and the guy got way too defensive right off the bat (which figures since he probably knew the thing was half dead when they delivered it). So I called the florist in Florida and the best they could get out of these guys was a new orchid, but they made them pay an additional $20. How pathetic. But then the worst part was the replacement - it was potted so poorly it fell out. Oh, and half the buds on one of the two stems were dead. So if I have any hope of keeping this thing I know need to go learn how to repot orchids - not something that's too easy with a three week old baby.
Oh, and the guy who delivered the flowers...stoned out of his mind!
They are Wonderful – I have used this florist for 5 years and they are fabulous. The guys who work there are super nice. They carry a good selection of high quality flowers at very reasonable prices. Local delivery is free and there is no minimum (or if there is a minimum it must be pretty low - they've delivered $35 plants for me for no charge). These guys have provided me with so much kind extra service over the years - I cannot recommend them highly enough!
Quick Blooms – Nice people. Crack service. Nice to talk with someone who listens and does not need to be told every word twice. Asked the right questions and did what I asked.
