Best florist to deliver roses in Zurich

Hi all, I've been lurking for a while and learned a lot from the forum... but now I need to ask a question... I live in the US and am dating a Swiss person in Zürich. I would like to have a dozen roses delivered to him... I'm trying to find the best local florist to take care of this.

I searched this forum and found many old threads about this, but most of the old links were broken (or I couldn't find web sites for the florists mentioned).

One suggestion was this florist: http://www.crotfleurs.ch/ The web site looks promising but does anyone know if they are good? (And I can't read French so I don't understand if they are even in Zürich or deliver to Wiedikon! lol it's difficult from 9,600 km away!! )

I would prefer to avoid https://www.fleurop.ch/ if possible, only because my experience with this kind of service (it's called "FTD" in the U.S.) is that you tend to get the most basic flowers, arrangements from a standard catalog, etc. I am happy to pay a little bit more for a really good local Zürich florist that I can order from directly, who will use the absolutely best product and can make something really amazing and exceptional.

Thank you all for any suggestions! (And thank you for this forum! I've been visiting Zürich regularly for many months now and as my boyfriend and I get closer, the next step is for me to live in Zürich for three months... I am SO excited about that idea and the adventure!!)

Best wishes from West Hollywood, California
Eric

Re: Best florist to deliver roses in Zurich

to the EF!

Since I do read French I can tell you that http://www.crotfleurs.ch/ is affiliated with Fleurop, and so can deliver flowers worldwide. They themselves are in the French-speaking part of Switzerland, and do not seem to deliver beyond a rather limited area which definitely excludes Zurich.

I obviously know absolutely nothing about them other than what I could glean in a quick scan of their site.

Re: Best florist to deliver roses in Zurich

I like Rosenbörse. The flowers I got there were in impeccable condition and fairly priced in my opinion. All roses are fairtrade (so I was told). They do deliveries, by Swiss Post, and accept Paypal payments. But I don't know about an English version of their website, perhaps emailing them could help you get info you need.

Thank you very much, sounds like I can cross them off the list.

Ok, this looks VERY promising... I like how they talk about the quality of their roses, and it says they can deliver in Zürich in person. Thanks!!

You can actually order by phone - so maybe email to inquire about orders in English and then call to place your order?

Good luck.

Second that!
Used them a few times for flower deliveries (in both Zürich and Zug) and was really good service (and nice flowers as well).
They use bike couriers to deliver their flowers.

Re: Best florist to deliver roses in Zurich

There are so many! But I can recommend http://www.real-feel-look.com/de/ges...nladen#!/real+ by Christian Felix, f.e. Tina Turner had her wedding flowers from him!

Re: Best florist to deliver roses in Zurich

Just to post a quick follow-up... I ended up going with http://www.rosenboerse.ch/

And they were great. I called their Zurich office from the US (the map on their web site is wrong; they're located just south of the main train station). The person who answered the phone spoke good English, he took my order and my credit card, and the flowers were delivered exactly as promised. I paid US$74 for a dozen roses and delivery. The boyfriend was very pleased.

Thanks again everyone for the help in making a romantic moment for my boyfriend from far, far away! :-)
