Local Inverinate florist Loch Duich Plants has been accepted into the exclusive Good Florist Guide, the gold standard of floristry and only merit-based guide to the finest florists in the UK and Republic of Ireland. The so-called ‘little black book’ of British and Irish florists awarded the prestigious accolade to Loch Duich Plants. Owner Donald MacIntosh described themselves as very pleased.
Each florist shop or freelance florist invited to be in the guide undergoes a rigorous evaluation process before being approved. Loch Duich Plants submitted a detailed description of their floristry business, including range available and services offered as well as images of their business premises, their design work, their team and even the delivery vehicle! Good Florist Guide businesses are vetted to ensure its members provide not just gorgeous designs, but also best value when buying bespoke floristry and flowers.
Commenting on their success Donald MacIntosh of Loch Duich Plants said: "We are delighted to be accepted into the Good Florist Guide. We are passionate about flowers, design, quality and the service we give to each of our customers so it is wonderful to have this recognised."
Donald MacIntosh said "What’s special about our business is that we focus on excellent customer service and work with the freshest flowers we can possibly source for our customers."
Caroline Marshall-Foster, Chief Editor of floristry’s industry bible The Florist magazine, and Executive Director of the Good Florist Guide set up the guide as a way to ensure customers always receive top quality floristry from businesses that value excellent customer service. Industry insiders describe it as the ‘little black book’ of British and Irish florists.
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 use is able and willing to go the extra mile and make all their purchases, big or small, truly special.”
