Sue's Flowers of York

4 Toby Ct, Strensall, York YO32 5BD, UK – 01904 492059

I ordered a bridal bouquet and button holes through Sue's Flowers for my daughter's wedding. They were all lovely. (I actually had button holes for my own wedding last year from Sue's as well - and they were what made me come back). I have also ordered 4 bridesmaid bouquets and, following a conversation with the shop, they were so conscientious they emailed me to say there is a slight difference if the colour of the bouquets I had ordered to what had gone in the bride's bouquet; and therefore did I want them matching up. That's service for you. Excellent service, excellent products.

Button holes, table decorations and wedding bouquets all had that WOW factor

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.
