I was on my way to pick up some chocolates for the team at my chemists. I know I cause them lots of stress! But I passed the secret garden and was helped to buy some lavender instead. The price was great and I got a hug from the boss at the chemist!!! I had to write a review because I was having a bad day, but I am smiling now. And to think, they were closing up when I came, but iI still got taken care of.

Fantastic service! I used wild for flowers for a bouquet for my wife and they went well above and beyond the call trying three times to make sure they were delivered as we were in and out all day and kept missing the delivery. Amazing flowers as well and lasted 16 days before my wife finally parted with them. I Will be using time and time again and would definitely recommend to anyone wanting long lasting flowers and very good service! Thanks guys.

Highly recommended florist! I used Alex at Christmas (sorry for the late review) to create me a beautiful centre piece for the table for Christmas Day. Wow! What can I say... The whole family commented on how lovely it looked and it lasted for so long. Will definitely be using again and would thoroughly recommend to anyone looking for a florist in Folkestone.

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.
