Dykstra's in Spring Valley has been our favorite for 35 years. Always on time, always well designed, always the most help with the best advice. They are also very caring and involved with the community.

Pearl River Florist hands down. Great flowers, great service and great delivery. They are also very generous when called upon by local non profits and charitable groups. That goes a long way in my book. Maybe that is why they have been in business for over 25 years. Check them out next time you need flowers or a gift basket.

You should include Petals & Stems in Monsey. The owner Barbara Cohen is a "floral" legend in our county. It would be a great disservice to our community to leave her off of your list. Thank you.

Thanks for the nominations! Dykstra and Petals & Stems have been added

The Flower Peddler is by far the BEST florist EVER! They superceded my expectations for my wedding flowers in every way possible. They did such an AMAZING job. They were super creative with the flower arrangements. The flowers going down the aisle, on the Chuppah, for the reception, and on the wedding cake were arranged in such spectacular ways. The kinds of flowers I wanted and received were absolutely gorgeous one-of-a kind arrangements. I've never seen flower arrangements so beautiful and stunning in my whole life. I am still getting compliments from my wedding guests about the flowers. All my guests wanted to take them home after the wedding and they did!!!!

The Flower Peddler...hands down!! Been buying flowers from Glenn since he was on the side of the road on rt.304, and continue to buy flowers from him in his store. Even when I was in California, I had Glenn deliver to my mom every Mothers Day!
