In 1873, Stephen Tidy came to Canada and built a small suburban greenhouse at 477 Ontario Street, where he operated as a grower until 1877. Realizing the demand in market, he opened the retail business S. Tidy and Sons Limited. It was then relocated to King Street West. Tidy's three sons, Stephen, William, and Charles, worked with their father and opened a second flower shop on Yonge Street. Tidy's legacy remained even after his demise in 1896, when another store was opened on King Street. Elliott purchased the company after the death of Charles Tidy in 1947. He became president in 1948. Elliott's son Nick, an engineer with General Electric, joined the business in 1951, and 13 years later bought out his father. After his father's death in 1974, Nick Lye became president, with younger brother Douglas at his side. In 1983, Janet Lye, Elliott's granddaughter, become the new president of Tidy's Flowers. Tidy's Flowers has undergone countless historical moments crossing three centuries.

My fiance and I choose Tidy's, and worked with Tim Radford for our bouquets/boutonnieres/corsages for our Toronto wedding in September 2015. Tidy's was having major computer issues when we went in for the consult, but Tim was a superstar, the price was very competitive (we were on a budget), and the process was easy. I already knew what I wanted for the bridal party bouquets, but he offered some very good advice on the corsages and boutonnieres. I could not believe how beautiful everything turned out when the flowers arrived the morning of the wedding - and still love admiring those flowers in the photos!Sent on 09/11/2015

Our flowers turned out beautifully. A concern with fresh flowers is that they may not be fresh when you get them. Ours were perfect. They arrived on time, everything was accounted for, and they looked (and smelled) amazing. We worked with Ester at Tidy's Flowers to create our vision of the perfect day, and she listened! Once they were set up at the venue, it looked amazing (I have extremely high standards and I could find nothing wrong!). We had centerpieces, standards, small vases with flowers and candles strewn around, kissing balls, corsages, boutonnieres and of course, bouquets. For all that we got and the beautiful quality, the price was unbeatable. In a heartbeat, I would recommend Tidy's Flowers for wedding flowers!Sent on 20/09/2014

Frances is by far the best in the flower business! When we did the ordering of the flowers, she sat down and myself not knowing anything about flowers showed me different pieces she could make and what would go together well. In the end, she made my flowers more beautiful then I ever imagined! I got many compliments on them throughout the day. Flowers are very important as they are in most of your pictures and you cannot go wrong with Tidy's Flowers. Frances always got back to my emails within a couple hours and was very efficient! I absolutely loved my flowers and was blown away with how amazing they looked on the day!Sent on 01/08/2013
