Haven't been in for a long time and I think is not cheap but took my disabled father there for flowers for mum and they were very helpful and flowers excellent, sure they did them for no profit that time

OK but the front of the shop, outside area always seems to look scruffy and uncared for, as if no one wants to be the one to do the job. It's a pity because the cafe behind is great.

A huge thank you to Karen and the ladies at Bluebells for a stunning bouquet made and delivered today for my grandparents 70th Anniversary. I gave a brief guide of what I wanted and left the creative flair to them....we were not disappointed one bit.

Ordered flowers over the phone, recieved email to confirm that had been delivered. See photos of the flowers that were delivered and they looked great. All in all an excellent service from start to finish.

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.
