There are many places you can go in order to get yourself a bunch of flowers. Gone has the time where you had to go to a florist to get a beautiful bouquet. Now, convenience stores, supermarkets and even petrol stations will have a collection of bouquets available for you to purchase. However, with all this competition around, each and every establishment will claim that their flowers are the best. As a consumer, it is your job to make sure that you get the most for your money and that you are getting the best service possible, and this is where we come in.
Flowers by Post UK is an online flower shop, meaning that we cannot be found on the high street or the corner of a street. This means that our prices will remain low since we will not be secretly charging you for florist maintenance etc. Secondly, it means that your life is made much easier. Not convinced? Well then carry on reading…
Imagine having to buy a bunch of flowers and not having access to our flower shop. You will at some point have to visit a supermarket or a florist to pick out the flowers that you like. If you decide to go to the supermarket you may find that there are no professionally trained members of staff who can help you with your needs and queries. If you do end up going to the florist, you may find yourself paying more than you would have liked to. Then, after having made a purchase, you will have to go to the recipient’s house in order to drop the flowers off. Now with us by your side, this story would be a whole lot different.
With us, you simply go online and see what we have to offer in our flower shop. You will find that we have a lot of different bouquets varying in size, shape and price. If you would like something that is not in our list, then simply get in touch by calling 020 3890 5166 and let us know what it is that you would like. We can personalise and customise any bouquet to suit the needs of the recipient. Once you have paid (online of course), we simply get the arrangement together, make sure that it is all okay and deliver it. Yes, that’s right – we can deliver the flowers to a destination of your choice. We have a variety of flower delivery services including the same day flowers service and flowers by post service. Now, see the difference? You just managed to order, pay and get your flowers delivered without potentially having to leave your house or office or wherever you are at the point of purchase. How easy and convenient is that?
Next, let’s talk quality. Whilst high street florists claim to have fresh flowers, what you need to remember is that they are kept at the florist for quite some time – until they die actually. So if you happen to purchase your flowers on the day of a delivery then go you! But if you happen to be down there a few days into the delivery, chances are that you will not be getting the freshest flowers. The same thing goes with supermarket flowers. That leaves us with petrol station flowers. Do not even get me started on those! I’m sure giving a loved one a bunch of flowers that have been standing in the petrol station for a few days being intoxicated by petrol fumes is just what everyone wants! Sounds very attractive right?
Customer service is also important right? We at Flowers by Post UK make sure that every member of staff is educated and trained. We like to hire and employ people who not only know everything there is about flowers, but also enjoy working with flowers. This means that you can talk to us about anything that you may have concerns about. If you would like to know more about how to get the most of your flowers, which flowers portray the perfect message or even about any additional services that we offer e.g. little additional gifts such as chocolates, wine etc. then all you have to do is pick up the phone and ask – we will be more than happy to help! You may not be able to get the same customer service from a petrol station or a supermarket, since supermarkets and petrol stations tend not to hire specialist staff. They may be able to give you a general helping hand, but if you are after professional advice, we are the people to contact.
Since we do not have a florist on the high street or a supermarket of some sort, we will not be charging you for anything extra when it comes to our flowers. This means that you will find yourself saving money in comparison to going to a high street, top of the range florist or a supermarket. So, to summarise, purchasing flowers from us will mean that you will be able to purchase flowers which are fresh, of great quality, cheaper than others alike and all of this under the greatest convenience to you. Why would you go anywhere else?
Buying flowers can sometimes be very difficult and this is why people stop sending flowers. With flowers having different meaning and a variety of them to choose form, you may find yourself confused and frustrated. You might not know much about flowers and may wish to get some expert advice. This is where we come in. We can help you with everything and anything, which makes us as popular as we are. To speak to one of our members of staff, simply dial 020 3890 5166 and get the ball rolling today. You will find yourself relaxed and stress free, and your recipient will certainly enjoy receiving them. For perfect flowers every time, come to us and see the difference – you will not be sorry.
Online is definitely the cheapest way to send flowers. You can order whenever and wherever you want, and you get the best prices compared to high street florists. So you will save time and money by ordering online.
There is no best day of the week as such. It really depends on when you need them delivered. Ideally, you want to give as much notice as possible, so you have the largest selection. But we also do same and next day flower delivery, so if you order today, they could be on their way within hours.
You certainly can get flowers delivered tomorrow. We provide next day flower delivery across the UK. Our extensive courier network ensures that even at short notice, you can get the best flowers delivered.
White roses symbolise innocence and purity. They make great wedding flowers or christening flowers for this reason. They also mean eternal love and are perfect for an anniversary too.
Flowers are precious cargo, so we use special packaging to keep them safe. For our letterbox flowers, this includes a specially designed box for them to go in. Our ready-made bouquets are packed with great care, stored upright at all times, and include a special water vessel so they stay fresh and bright.
It depends on how many you need. A single red rose could cost a couple of pounds, whereas a bouquet of a dozen maybe upwards of £30. It also depends on where you buy them from. We have roses of all varieties for all budgets available.
You can order as early as you like. We recommend a longer time if you want bespoke bouquets or lots of personalisation. However, you can also get flowers delivered the same day or the next day, so there is lots of flexibility depending on your needs.
If you have told us where we can deliver them (e.g. with a neighbour, porch, or safe space), we will leave them there. If not, we may try and call to let you know we have arrived and ask what you’d like us to do. Alternatively, we may leave a message with details of how to arrange re-delivery.
Roses are probably the most popular flower. They can be used for everything, from weddings to anniversaries, birthdays and funeralsл They are very easy to incorporate into a bouquet. Other popular flowers include sunflowers, carnations, poppies, and lilies.
Roses are number one and are used in lots of bouquets. Tulips are also very common. Sunflowers, daisies and marigolds are also commonly used. And we can’t forget carnations.
We get asked why flowers are so expensive a lot, and we always say that we don’t think they are. At least not the flowers you can buy from us. We work very hard to keep our flowers affordable, and we are sure you will find something perfect for your budget once you have a browse.
Unfortunately, supermarket flowers are often a false economy. They are stored in very clever ways that make them look bright and fresh in store, but they often die quickly, because they're not that fresh. This is why they can sell them for so cheap because they know you will probably have to buy more in a week.
Lilies are the most common flower for sympathy and funeral arrangements. White lilies, in particular, are very symbolic of loss and bereavement. They are a beautiful tribute to a lost loved one and a very popular choice for this time.
You can put anything you like. Most people will write about how they felt about their deceased. Others will keep it simple with something like ‘you will be missed’ or may not put a message at all. We can offer suggestions if you are having trouble thinking of something to include, please contact our team for more information.
This is such a hard question to answer, as everyone will have a personal preference. The experts would probably argue that the Kadupul is the most beautiful because it is so rare; it only lasts for such a short time. But we think it is up to each person to choose their favourite.
There are a few simple things you can do. Make sure they get enough water (sometimes this is less than you think). Keep it somewhere light. Use the plant food provided. If you follow these steps your flowers will look fresh for a week and much longer (depending on the flowers).
It is a personal choice. You will normally include the deceased’s name on the message that you send with the flowers, but you can get it included in the flowers themselves too.
This is a very hard one to answer, as bereavement is a very personal thing. Ideally, it is best to write something specific to the person, but if you are struggling to think of anything, then a simple ‘I’m sorry for your loss’ or ‘we are thinking of you’ will often go a long way.
It can depend on the flower, but yes, baking soda can help balance out the acidity of a flower and can help make it last longer.
Things to consider include when to send flowers, where to send them, and what kind to send them. It should be noted that different cultures and religions have different etiquettes when it comes to flowers for funerals, so we advise researching this before sending them. One thing to consider is whether the family have asked for flowers. It is increasingly common for the money spent on flowers to be donated to charity instead, so if this is requested, it is best to follow that.
Peonies are one of the most popular flowers for weddings. But they only bloom for very short periods and can be quite hard to grow. This makes them both very desirable and expensive as a wedding flower.
It is advised to change the water every two days.
Peonies are very popular wedding flowers. So are white roses, lilies, and carnations. But modern brides are also considering different bouquets, and lots are including much more colour, with tulips and even sunflowers being used more often.
Regular vinegar isn’t recommended, however, apple cider vinegar is. Mix a small amount into the water of flowers, and it can help them stay fresh and last longer.
There is some debate about this. But generally, tap water at room temperature will do the trick. After all, your hot or very cold water won’t stay at that temperature for long. The most important thing is that your flowers have enough water.
This depends on the flowers. Some flowers, such as carnations and zinnias naturally last quite a long time, close to a month. Whereas some other flowers will wilt more quickly. If you are looking for a particularly long-lasting bouquet, speak to our team, and they can advise on the best flowers.
Some say it is the Kadupul flower because it is so rare. Others argue that certain types of orchids are the most beautiful. But we think all flowers are pretty in their way, and we are sure you have your preference. Luckily, we have flowers to suit all tastes, so no matter what you prefer, we have got you covered.
There are a few varieties that bloom all year. This includes petunias, begonias, sunflowers, and pansies. These are just a few of them, but a good gardening book will be able to help you find more. Or send a message to our team to find out.
Easy: visit our online flower store, choose the flowers you want, and tell us where to send them. It is very quick and simple, and the best part is you can do it wherever you are, whenever you want.
You can choose to send your flowers in a vase. This makes it an extra special gift and is a particularly great housewarming present, or for someone who doesn’t own one. But it is not mandatory, so you can choose when you order.
You can send flowers anonymously. However, we always recommend putting a name or note, as people like to be able to say thanks when they receive a gift.
It depends on the flowers and delivery option you have chosen. Many of our flower arrangements can be delivered the same day, thanks to our UK-wide network of couriers.
We offer delivery every day of the week, including Sundays and Bank Holidays. The only day we don’t do this is Christmas Day.
We will send you updates at every stage of your order. Plus, when your flowers are with the courier, they will usually send you a code to allow you to track the order in real-time.
We can do that. However, not all hospitals allow flowers in the wards. Please check this before placing an order, as we can’t be held responsible if the flowers cannot be delivered as a result of hospital policy.
It will depend on when you placed your order and the type of delivery you selected. Most bouquets will arrive at their destination before 7 pm on delivery day. You can track most orders and will be kept up to date as they make their way to you.
Just let us know when you order your flowers that you want to include a message. Tell us what you want to say, and we will include the note with the flowers. It is a great way to let someone know you are thinking about them.
You might think so, and it can be if you are experienced in floristry. But overall we’d say it is cheaper to buy flowers from a florist. This is because we have special deals on high-quality flowers, and we know how to put them together to make them last. If you don’t have this knowledge, it can end up more expensive to do it yourself.
We have flower delivery options for all your needs. It includes same day flower delivery and next day flower delivery. You can see all our options online.
Flowers are very common at graveside services and are a great way to express your appreciation for the deceased. However, not all families want flowers sent to the funeral, so it is best to check their preferences ahead of time.
Absolutely, if you need multiple orders, we will be happy to help. However, if you are sending flowers to lots of different places, it may be easier to do it in separate orders. This helps keep things organised for you and us. For very complex orders, please contact our team directly, and they will be happy to help.
We certainly do. There may be uplift on the delivery charge for flowers sent on bank holidays, but we can organise delivery.
Flowers are packaged using specialist supplies and placed in delivery vans in a highly secure way. Our couriers are experts at flower delivery, so they know how to take great care of your bouquet as it makes its way to you.
If payment can’t be processed, we first recommend trying a different card or payment method. If that also fails, please contact our team so we can look into it and advise you.
We offer a range of beautiful vases that can be purchased alongside your flowers. But if you are sending flowers to someone else, we always suggest checking if they already have a vase, as they may not need another.
When you visit our website, you will find the most up to date selection of flowers. This is the easiest way to see what is in season. However, if you want a more in-depth discussion around your needs, you can talk to our team, and they will be happy to advise.
You certainly can. If you just want to order as a one off and want to do so quickly, you can purchase flowers as a guest. However, if you plan to order more than once, we recommend setting up an account. It is quick and just makes it more convenient for future orders. We can even save you favourites and remind you when special occasions are coming up - plus you get access to discounts and savings.
Yes, we can arrange delivery to most places. However, it is best if you have specific details, such as a room number, that we can have them delivered to as not all hotels accept flowers at the front desk.
I have ordered from this florist on several occasions, and they get it right every time! They're the best in the area.
Definitely, call these folks if you need same-day flower delivery. That's what I did, and it was such a good experience. I got confused after calling a few places and being disappointed, but they made it all as stress-free as possible on me. Thank you!
I needed flowers delivered to a hospital in London for my dear friend. I went to visit today, and in my opinion, they really stood out from the others! Very nice flowers.
I ordered a bouquet of roses for my wife. I wanted to send flowers to go with the other anniversary gifts that are waiting for her. They had no trouble getting to us, and I must say, I think I will enjoy having these roses around as much as she does.
