The 17 best online flower delivery services for Valentine’s Day and every other occasion

  • Quickest delivery: next day if you order before 10pm, free
  • Letterbox flowers available: yes

Bloom & Wild were among the first to offer letterbox flowers, where they’re packed in aerated boxes slim enough to fit through the front door, meaning the recipient doesn’t have to be in to take delivery. In order to fit in the smaller box, they’re sent in bud, opening out after you arrange them in water. You do have to explain this to the recipient sometimes.

As innovators they’ve gained a cult status, with people forming attachments to their dozens of named bouquets like the £28 Mia (carnations, solidago, freesias, eucalyptus, rosemary and asters) or the £44 Whitney (tulips, freesias, stocks, roses, limonium and eucalyptus). You can also buy someone three months of flowers, six months or even a year’s worth. 

We ordered the Nadia (£50, above), a 23-stem bouquet of roses, alstroemeria, snapdragons, greenbell and eucalyptus, which came by Royal Mail in 48 hours, arriving on a Sunday. The flowers were in full bloom by the end of the day. 

Bloom & Wild offer free trackable next-day delivery and free same-day delivery for certain London postcodes, although you can pay £5 for a courier service. If the flowers aren’t fresh upon arrival, you can send a photo to the company and receive a new bunch or a refund. They’re not a budget choice, but on the whole, they offer good value for money.
