Thrive Floristry

3 Old Hall Barns, Thurston Road, Bury Saint Edmunds IP31 2NG, UK – 01359 231009

Claire and the Thrive team did the beautiful flowers for our wedding at Hengrave Hall - we couldn't have been more happy with the service we received and the final creations Claire put together to fit our style and look of the day. The entire process was relaxed, enjoyable and we felt excellent value for money (especially compared with the many town centre/shops we approached originally.) It was lovely to visit Claire at her workshop in a beautiful barn just outside Bury St Edmunds and the process of discussing and sharing ideas was extremely relaxing in these surroundings. Claire really focused on understanding our ideas and needs and was really helpful, flexible and open minded with all the changes of plans we made! She really helped us stick to our budget without having to lose out on any of the items which we had initially thought might end up too extravagant. On the day itself Claire was on time, friendly, un-obtrusive and we didn't even need to think or worry about how the flowers were getting on - it was just such a beautiful surprise to walk into the Church (and later the venue itself) and see everything look just as we had hoped it would (and more.) If you are considering a florist for your wedding, please go ahead with the Thrive team - you won't look back! Thank you Claire and team! x

lovely lady who cares very much about her floristry! can't wait to see the flowers on our wedding day!

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.
