Marks and spencers flowers are always lovely when they arrive. Some sites I've used online have been kinda disappointing.

Try [url]WWW.FLYINGFLOWERS.CO.UK[/url] I've always found them to be really good-or [url]www.valueflora.co.uk[/url]

i've used both before and been impressed.

been on their site but they seem quite pricey compared to the next site. will deffo have another browse through if they are worth the money. thanks :-D

Why not try your local florist, or the one local to your Mum. My sister-in-law is a florist and I have to say that flowers from her last longer than a lot of "shops". If you don't live near your mum just find one that is close to her and give them a ring, they'll usually deliver on Mothers Day too and will take your order over the phone, support the independent florists I say!!

Have a look at [url]www.theflowerstork.com[/url], gorgeous and they do chocolate boquets too.

Go to your nearest wholesales market and get loads for your £30... :thumbsup:

hmmm might just try a different one than last time, take a special trip somewhere else. i always get carried away in florists and go over budget cos they always look so nice in the shop

Not sure if you have ordered them yet, but I would not order flowers from next again. They dont last as long as marks and spencers or John Lewis flowers, and dont always look like the photo. We were not that impressed with what we got for the £ and especially since they didnt last that long

John lewis flowers are brilliant for the money, delivered on time, some open flowers and some buds, last weeks! We wouldnt hesitate to use them again and everyone we have sent them to have been really impressed
