If I ever need to send flowers to the hospital, to a funeral or for most any event I call Martina's Flower's and Gifts http://www.martinas.com in Martinez, GA. The area I live in is centered around the Savannah River and is called the Central Savannah River Area or CSRA.
Augusta is the largest city on the Georgia side of the river and North Augusta and Aiken are the two largest on the SC side. But the CSRA is comprised of many smaller towns on both sides of the river and we shop all over.
What I like about Martina's is the prices are great and I have never ordered anything that was skimpy on flowers. The flowers are also fresh and last forever. The other thing I like is I can go online and go through the arrangements and see what I like and what the prices are before I call. Then I have an idea of what I want before I call them. If some of the flowers I have picked are not in season the folks at Martina's will always tell me which ones are not available and what they can use to replace them.
They tell me up front about extra cost if flowers are being sent out of town and I have never had any problems with being over charged or flowers being late. I order my flowers, they put it on my account and mail me a bill for what ever the amount is. I don't have to put it on a credit card, I can just mail them a check.
They handled all the flowers for my mother's funeral and I can honestly say everything they did was beautiful and the flowers lasted through the whole thing. That was a tall order too, because Mom's funeral was done in two parts. Saturday we had part one here in North Augusta and then a small graveside service in Greenville, SC on Sunday for her friends and family where she was born and where she and my Dad are buried.
Even though there are several florist in North Augusta, and I have used them in the past, I still go to Martina's for most of my flower needs. You just can't beat them.
