Cydney immediately put my fiance and I at ease from the moment we met her. She was professional, creative, and competent, showing us a variety of arrangements and weddings she had participated in. Cydney listened carefully to who we were and what our vision was for the wedding. Her excitement was contagious! Through the planning process she was a dream to work with; quick to communicate and organized while providing several sample arrangements and budget plans. She went above and beyond duty even offering advice on linens and helping choose the cake! As a bride I really appreciated how she respected our budget. The flowers she provided at our wedding were absolutely stunning. We could not have been more impressed with either her or her arrangements. I consider it an honor to have gotten to know her through the wedding process and call her a friend.
- Pros: Gorgeous arrangements, creative and energetic professional
- Cons: absolutely none

The owner helped me find a perfect housewarming gift for my boss. I had a limited budget but needed something that really made a statement. She helped me put together a really custom gift basket with organic teas, a candle and locally grown zinnias that were amazing in color. The owner and her staff really know their stuff. She was so knowledgeable about the source of her products and you can tell that being green and eco-friendly is really important to her. I will definitely shop there again!
- Pros: Fantastic, personalized and creative gifts
- Cons: no cons

If you are looking for flowers that you and your guests will be talking about for years to come – there is no other choice than The English Garden. Cydney and her entire team treats you like family, and like family they only want the best for you. They cater to your every need - no mater how "off-the-wall" or "out-of-the-ordinary" your requests are.
From classic and traditional designs, to contemporary and modern (or a mix of both) The English Garden will make your dream a reality!
My wedding would not have been the same with out the entire staff's dedication and details they provided to make my day look as special to everyone else as it was to me. Many, many thanks!
- Pros: Caters to your needs in a very personable atmosphere

The English Garden did my wedding flowers recently and they were beautiful beyond my wildest dreams. I cannot say enough about this florist. I had gone to another vendor. He was supposed to be Raleigh's top wedding vendor but he treated me like I was just taking up his time. When Cydney met me , she was so personable and paid such attention to every little detail. And even better she brought my wedding in right where I needed it to be budgetwise. If you need wedding flowers, book English Garden now. It won't be long before a magazine or TV show snaps up this talented designer and her staff.
- Pros: incredible design and attention to detail
- Cons: nothing at all

I am helping coordinate bouquets for my daughter's dance recital and our group has a really limited budget. Cydney and her staff went above and beyond putting helping us put together several options for parents to consider and even offering a discount so that we can use the flower sales as a fundraiser for the dance program. I had called three other florists who told me they couldn't help me with what we needed to do. Cydney and her staff said "no problem, tell us what you need and it will be done." I can't thank them enough!
- Pros: Super flower selection. Really friendly staff.
- Cons: none

This review is written by a totally delighted Mother of the Groom who knows little to nothing about flowers. The bride and her mother wisely chose The English Garden after talking with them at the bridal show in the Spring. To work with Cydney was a true delight. As other reviews so aptly put it....she listened to the brides requests and put her special touch on all the flowers in the most delightfully pleasing way. The flowers were elegant but not stuffy and she did them for not only the wedding reception but for the Rehearsal Dinner and Bridesmaids luncheon as well.
We were a fortunate group in that our bride knew very clearly what she wanted but Cydney made her vision come alive with her creations. I would highly recommend her for any occasion and feel content to now have a florist here who is so competent and accommodating at the same time.
- Pros: The entire experience
- Cons: None

I cannot say enough about the English Garden. From beginning to end, Cydney and her staff went above and beyond to make our wedding day perfect. The flowers were spectacular, the attention to detail above and beyond our expectations. Most importantly, Cydney really made an effort to get to know us and to really capture our personalities and style in the decor. I checked out other florists before finding the English Garden and I can honestly say there is just no comparison. We came in right on budget, the flowers looked like they were right out of a Platinum Weddings show and we formed a friendship with the Englishes that we know will be a lasting one. Thank you again for making our wedding day the day of our dreams!
- Pros: Spectacular design, incredible attention to detail, personable and caring service
- Cons: No cons whatsoever

The English Garden did the floral work for my daughter's birthday celebration. As a professional event planner, I have worked with The English Garden before and knew what a wonderful job they have done for my clients. I met with Cydney to discuss the event theme (Chinese New Year) as well as my ideas for this event. I really wanted to capture the asian theme and create some spectacular additions to the event. Cydney far surpassed my expectations with the arrangements she provided. She completely captured my vision for the event. The chinese dragon centerpieces with tails crafted from orchids, tangerines and flowing ribbons were breathtaking and the chandelier made from bamboo poles, draping orchids and chinese lanterns was beautiful. I would absolutley recommend The English Gardn for any type of event, large or small.

These people are wonderful. They really listened to everything that my bride was wanting and that is very important when we search for a florist, especially one from out of town.

I am a local Raleigh DJ and work lots of weddings and events. I can honestly say that when the English Garden does the flowers, people are blown away. Their design ideas, the way they listen to their clients, and the way they really focus on each and every detail really sets them apart from other florists. They treat every wedding like it is a platinum wedding. I just got an anniversary bouquet for my wife that was her favorite ever. Cydney helped me come up with a really great idea. She designed a bouquet like my wife's wedding bouquet and she couldn't believe it. It was awesome!
