Enjoy Plant Sale During January

Our plant sale kicked off at the start of January and will run for the entire month, giving you time to take advantage of these plant deals at our Finger Lakes flower shops. One of the best days to take advantage of this sale is National Houseplant Appreciation Day on Saturday, January 10th. This day was created to bring more awareness to the benefits nature brings to us, including the ability to purify the air, help us access more oxygen, can provide some assistance to sleep better, and provide a calm atmosphere that helps cope with stressful times. Plus, houseplants are easy to care for and, in return, last a long time for further enjoyment. Our in-store plant deals help you take advantage of these benefits while also providing a way to share it with those around you. After all, plants also make great gifts for birthdays, anniversaries, get well soon, congratulations, and even just because moments. For example, our Good Luck Bamboo. Bamboo is known as a plant tied to prosperity and good fortune. It comes in a natural bamboo cube and makes a thoughtful gift for those in your life. Of course, our other plants can send positive messages to friends, family members, colleagues, clients, and more.  All of our Finger Lakes flower shop locations have a wide range of green plants, succulents and cacti, and blooming plants to choose from to fit your preference, style, and budget. We also have stunning displays like orchids, bromeliads, and azaleas. We also provide a way to enjoy many plants at one time by creating gardens in containers like ceramic bowls and baskets. Find something that matches your own decor so your plant displays complement your home. These garden options include green plants and succulents and sometimes even blooming plants. Please place your [...]

Introducing Bloom Gal!

We are excited to introduce you to our latest endeavor: BloomGal! While we have been voted the best flower shop in Rochester, New York and serve the entire Finger Lakes area, we are always looking to make improvements and offer our customers even more when it comes to variety, value, and service. Here's how BloomGal got started. BloomGal was the idea of Wendy Jones Rockcastle, co-owner of Rockcastle Florist. With the help of her daughter, Mary Ethel Rockcastle, BloomGal was born. It was based on the idea of creating a floral subscription service that was accessible to more people. It seemed like a good idea to launch during COVID-19 with everyone stuck at home and the need to bring more natural beauty and color to all. Besides selling a floral subscription service, however, BloomGal has another higher purpose, which is to encourage others to nominate a BloomGal. In doing so, you are helping to highlight women in the community who inspire us. Each woman nominated will get highlighted in upcoming blog posts. We'd love to hear from you! Now, back to the floral subscription service. You can choose from weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, and seasonally for your bouquets. Our subscription bouquets are hand-crafted by a trained floral designer who uses the freshest seasonal flowers available. Every bouquet is different! Add-ons include a vase and shirt. Contactless delivery is free for our floral subscription service.  Currently, the service is only available within the Rochester and Canandaigua area. We are hoping to expand the service area in the near future. We also cannot accept orders for same-day delivery for the floral subscriptions.  If you chose today’s date in the date selection when placing your order, then your flowers will be delivered the next applicable day. For example, if you place an order for Monday delivery on Monday, your [...]
