These florists just provide quality floristry with an abundance of choice from a different array of flowers and plants, and in particular Potteround at Rozelle would stand out in a league of its own due to standing the test of time, and there is always an element of surprise regardless. Expect quality plants and flowers that last at least two weeks, and at reasonable prices. Their indoor ferns are just terrific.
Otherwise for beautiful bamboo plants that have lasted at least a couple of years; without starting to show any wear and tear Iris Florist in the city, as well as Christophers in Darlinghurst provide quality plants which only need a watering (and if so just a little bit) only once a week; just remember not to place these particular plants in the sun.
On many occasions one has had to buy bunches of flowers at Lotus 8 Flowers, which just stands out as a quality florist in the city; great for buying flowers in beautifully presented boxes with the right amount of ribbon. Fantastic and handy for when I have purchased such flower designs for wedding anniversaries, and on a much sadder note, for those unfortunate hospital visits upon leaving the city. Great customer service, and these establishments have also been handy for the occasional bunch of flowers to liven up one's living space before moving to Melbourne.
