My DC usually club together to get me a decent birthday present, This year I thought I might ask for a flower subscription - one of those companies that sends you flowers once a fortnight or whatever. Has anyone had one of these and is there any companies you would recommend?

I've heard very good things about Freddie's Flowers - but they may be London only.
I've looked into similar things only with houseplants, but I can't remember their names...
Sorry - not the most informative post! Hope you get some better responses than mine!

My daughter got me a three month subscription to Bloom and Wild for my birthday this year, they are flat packed and come through the letterbox. They were absolutely beautiful, different flowers each time.

I wish my daughters wouldn't spend large amounts of money in sending me flowers. I have had some shocking bunches of flowers that upset me because they had obviously spent a lot of money on them.

One time they were so bad that I sent my daughters a photo and the flowers were replaced.

One bunch was from Bloom and Wild and they were good.

I'd much prefer a plant that I could look after and keep alive.

At Christmas I was given a three month subscription to Bloom and Wild. All the bouquets were lovely. I recommend them.

Bloom and Wilde are excellent. Work out about £20 a month for an annual subscription, but there are others. The flowers often last for 10 days, although as they are letterbox they take a day to wake up.

Cornish blooms are a UK company using only UK flowers.
Most are grown on their own farm.

I have only been buying British blooms for a few years now and I know this company is reliable.
They have a subscription offer.

After glowing reviews on Gransnet I stopped using Bunches and went over to Bloom And Wild. They certainly are really fresh by all accounts.

Check with a local florist, though, if they do a similar system, cut out the middle man and maybe get more for the money.

Cornish blooms look interesting. Will give them a go. Never heard of them before.
