The staff is very careful about the freshness of the flowers. They avoid use of fully blossomed flowers in bouquets as it reduces longevity of the flower arrangement.
Several ready to buy flower bouquets fill the store. You can also ask them to prepare a flower arrangement of your choice, without paying any extra charges.
Our verdict - Despite its popularity in Chandigarh, their prices are very affordable. The staff is polite and patient. No matter what time of the day you visit the store, the flowers are fresh. Plenty of free parking area is available behind and in front of the shop.
