Well done on your recognition by Interflora! Completely deserved.
I must have used Lizzie before you for 10 years, then you guys since you took over 8 years ago. Whether it’s been a single rose as a “thank-you”, a small bunch of freesias for the latest pretty girl to arrive in Braintree, or a large basket or bouquet for a special occasion, the flowers are always gorgeous, beautifully arranged, and there seem to be more than I was expecting.
Keep it up.
