Bought my Valentine's bouquet here via instagram. The staff was friendly and patient in explaining the different types of bouquets available and worked well within my budget. They have both delivery and self-pickup options which made it very convenient for us buyers. Needless to say my special one was very pleased with the bouquet. Will definitely come back here again for my flowers.
