"Best ever bridal bouquet"
"At our wedding, one of our guests said that our flowers were the best she had ever seen. We certainly agree!
Gemma provided exactly what we wanted in colour and design and to suit our budget. I would certainly recommend her.
Thank you to all at Booker Flowers."

Featured gift of the month
Our gift of the month is this stunning parasol / umbrella – just perfect for Ladies Day at Aintree.
These umbrellas are walking stick length and made out of fibreglass frames which according to manufactures makes them virtually indestructible.
They come in several different beautiful designs so you should be able to match your outfit with ease.
Please have a look on our gifts website for further details. Prices range between £20 and £30.
Flower arrangement of the month
As part of the Ladies' Day theme, our featured flower arrangement of the month is a wrist corsage.
This will be created with your choice of flower and colour. It comes on an expandable pearl effect bracelet.
Prices are around £15
There are some lovely examples of other corsages on our website but you are not restricted to these choices. We will work with you to ensure that whatever you choose looks wonderful and perfectly accessorises with your outfit.
Corsages are also lovely to wear at weddings, graduation balls and other special events when you want to look your very best.
Exciting new garden product range
Just in time for the summer season, we have added a gorgeous range of aged metal products for your garden. These stylish items will really set your garden or yard off, and you will be the envy of your neighbours.
The range includes planters, bird feeders like this one, lanterns and butlers trays. There are more pictures and details on our website.
Caring for your fresh flowers
If you have bought roses and had to keep them out of water for any length of time please follow this great tip. Cut their stems at a 45 degree slant, and keeping the heads wrapped with stems sticking out, plunge about 2” of their stems into boiling water for 30 seconds then put them straight into cold for a couple of minutes. Remove wrapping and arrange as usual. This will get rid of any airlocks in the stems and stop the heads from drooping.
