Ramsgate’s florist York Street Flowers has been crowned as one of the UK’s best florists
The business has been accepted into the exclusive Good Florist Guide, the gold standard of floristry and the only merit-based guide to the finest florists in the UK and Republic of Ireland.
Acknowledged as the ‘little black book’ of the very best British and Irish florists, York Street Flowers were awarded the prestigious accolade last week.
Owner Karen Harvey said: “We are delighted to be accepted into the Good Florist Guide. We are passionate about flowers, design, quality and the service we give to each of our customers so it is wonderful to have this recognised.”
To be part of the guide, florists undergo a rigorous evaluation process before being approved. York Street Flowers submitted a detailed description of the floristry business, including the range available and services offered as well as images of the business premises, design work, their team and even the delivery vehicle! It was then assessed by industry experts to ensure it met the strict criteria of not just offering gorgeous designs, but also the best service and value for bespoke floristry and flowers.
Caroline Marshall-Foster, Editor of industry bible The Florist magazine and founder of Good Florist Guide, set it up as a way to ensure customers always receive top quality floristry from businesses that value excellent customer service.
Caroline said: “You can buy flowers virtually anywhere these days. But nothing really beats the experience of receiving fabulous flowers from a truly bespoke florist and without it costing an arm or a leg. The Good Florist Guide is my way of sharing all that is good about floristry. It allows consumers to know that the florist they use is able and willing to go the extra mile and make all their purchases, big or small, truly special.”
