Floral Ambitions

139 Liberton Brae, Edinburgh EH16 6LD, UK – 0131 639 6587

I ordered flowers online for my friends birthday. I always find it a hit or miss doing this with other companies and have been badly let down in the past, with flowers not looking as they do online. Floral Ambitions have restored my faith. The flowers were beautiful. My friend loves them. Thank you. Won't hesitate to use again and again.

Not only are the flowers always beautiful but the customer service is outstanding. Nothing is ever too much trouble for these girls, they are incredibly hard working and always smiling. I would never consider using any other florist. I highly recommend this florist to anyone in Edinburgh and the surrounding areas.

Spiral Flowers

2-4 Westmill Rd, Lasswade EH18 1LX, UK – 07538 838438

We used Spiral Flowers for our wedding at Dalhousie Castle in December 2017. They were INCREDIBLE. I planned everything through email from the US and they were so patient and accommodating. Everything was so easy. Not to mention, the flowers, candles, and decor were stunning. I HIGHLY recommend Spiral Flowers!

Style Exotic Flowers

50 Wisp Green, Edinburgh EH15 3QY, UK – 0131 563 7545

First time I've used Style Exotic and I'm very impressed. Ordered a large "One and Only" bouquet of Strelitzias for my wife's birthday. The bouquet was beautifully arranged with approximately a dozen large, healthy blooms and the greetings card was nicely written; my wife was extremely happy with the bouquet. The flowers arrived on time on the agreed date and I was given a 1 hour dekivery slot. Great customer service.

I asked for dramatic and got dramatic! Just lovely! Thank you very much! Also very helpful. Great job!

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.
