Guiseley florist Flowers By Karen has been accepted as a member of the Good Florist Guide.

This means they can now proudly display the 2023/2024 roundel to show they are accredited. The Good Florist Guide is the only kitemark of quality in the world that checks and accredits members before they are allowed to display the coveted logo and also re-checks the members each year to make sure they are maintaining standards.

Owner Melanie Harvey, of Flowers By Karen said: "We are delighted to be accepted into the Good Florist Guide. The whole team at Flowers by Karen are passionate about flowers, design, quality and the service we give to each of our customers, so it is wonderful to have this recognised."

Melanie added: "What’s special about our business is that we focus on working to a very high standard of products and services, we specialise in a wide range from classic and modern bouquets and arrangements, a full range of funeral flowers including very specific bespoke requests and of course our wealth of knowledge and experience in helping our brides choose the perfect flowers for their wedding day. Being a qualified Floristry Tutor I am more than happy to share skills and design philosophy and offer private one-to-one training sessions that are specifically designed to meet individual requirements which could be an ambition to join the floristry industry, improving existing skills or group workshops for people just wanting a bit of creative fun."

Caroline Marshall-Foster, Editor of the florist industry bible The Florist Magazine, and Chief Executive of Good Florist Guide set up the accreditation scheme as a way of ensuring customers always receive top-quality floristry from businesses that value excellent customer service.

Caroline said: “You can buy flowers virtually anywhere these days. But nothing really beats the experience of receiving fabulous flowers from a truly bespoke florist and without it costing an arm or a leg. The Good Florist Guide is my way of sharing all that is good about floristry. It allows consumers to know that the florist they choose is able and willing to go the extra mile and make all their purchases, big or small, truly special.”
