Frequently Asked Questions
Day to day we get asked a number of the same questions about choosing flowers and so we thought it might be helpful to list a few here. We love chatting to our customers but understand that many of you like to be prepared before placing an order. So here goes:
Can I order a specific flower or design?
Due to current international and government restrictions on flower markets here, and around the world, there are some limitations on what flowers are available for us to order and get delivered. Please call the shop to chat through what flowers you are looking for and we will do our best to source them for you. If they aren’t available we will be able to advise on what flowers may work just as well.
All of our products and designs are subject to availability. In the event of any supply difficulties, we reserve the right to substitute a product or flower but will always ensure it is of equivalent value and quality.
I don’t know what I want! Can you help me?
Don’t feel under any pressure to know flower names or styles, we can help you work out what it is that you want or your intended recipient may like. If buying for other people, think about what colours they like or tell us about their personality. Are they a romantic? More traditional? Outdoorsy? Think about their home and décor. What’s the occasion? We can use all this information to create something to suit. If you’re really stuck, don’t worry, that’s what we’re here for.
How much should I spend?
It’s best to have a budget in mind, the best way to work this out is to think about where you or your recipient may display the flowers. A small bouquet (approx. £40-£50) would be suitable for a side table, medium (approx. £50-£70) for a coffee table and large (approx. £70-£100+) for a dining table or a wow factor entrance.
What shall I write in the message?
This is obviously very personal but can fox many of our customers when put on the spot. Here are a few suggestions to get you started!
- Thanks a bunch!
- Thanks for all you do, you are a true friend
- Couldn’t have done it without you, thank-you
- You make my heart smile
- Accept these flowers in place of the words I said
- I'm wrong - you're right
- I'll never forgive myself...but I'm hoping you will. I'm sorry
- Sending sunny thoughts to brighten your day
- Hope this brightens your day!
- I hope these ruin a perfectly bad day
- Sending you some get well cheer!
- Hoping your wishes come true year after year
- Love on your birthday and every day

Our most popular local destinations include Didsbury, West Didsbury, Chorlton, Heaton Moor, Northenden, Heaton Mersey, Withington, Sale and Altrincham. Some of our dried designs are also available for National Delivery.
Is it cheaper to buy flowers that are in season?
It can be, we can advise which flowers are in season and present the best value. Our Florist Choice Hand-Tied Bouquet and Seasonal Posy Jar use flowers chosen by us, ensuring the freshest, most seasonal flowers available at the most reasonable price.
If I have a specific idea in mind, can you help?
Yes of course, we love to get creative and think there’s nothing better than delivering a bespoke arrangement. Although we do have to make sure the flowers you ask for are in season, they are available under current international and government Covid restrictions on flower markets, and you have given us enough notice to organise delivery.
Can I have my arrangement delivered with a vase?
Yes, we stock a large range of vases including a stunning range of high quality glass products that really complement our bouquets so are more than happy to include these in your order.
How about extra gifts?
Yes, we work with luxury chocolate supplier LOVE COCOA, as well as stocking a beautiful range of soy wax, hand-produced candles from Old Man and Magpie. We have a large range of stunning vases and candle holders, as well as handmade cards from local artist Lois Riley, plantable cards by Charlie Collis and we also stock hand printed Nova Cornwall cards. There are lots of ways to make your gift extra special.
What information do I need before I order?
For any order we will need the recipient’s full name and address, a contact telephone number, an idea of budget and any message you wish to include.
Orders can be placed online or by ringing up the shop on 0161 446 2556. You’re also welcome to visit the shop anytime to discuss your questions, we love an excuse to talk flowers!
