Top 3 on my list.
I frequent about 10 different flowershops depending on where I'm shopping for the week. They're all around brooklyn, but 2 are in the city.
I have them listed in order from 1-10.. I must say Orchid Florist tops my list.
How does a flower shop top a list?
Well I take a few things into consideration
How long the flowers stay fresh, with or without hydration
How "alive" the flowers look throughout the week (some limp faster)
How much of a variation does the shop have.
For orchid, the flowers are still fresh come week 3 with hydration, without water they'll last about a week and a half.
The flowers keep their non-limped "alive" look for a good two weeks. which may not seem like much, but fresh flowers on the dinner table are a must for my family -- the fact that we have to change them twice a month max when we frequent orchid is a big moneysaver.
As for variation, i must say, nothing tops orchid. They have every flower you can think of in almost every color you can imagine.
Their service is great. Fast, courteous, and their prices can't be beat.
#2 is parkway flowers -- who i'm about to review.. the only reason their lower than orchid is because of the price issue & the fact that they begin to limp midway through week 2.
