The best flower delivery services 2020

These online florists will deliver a bouquet of fresh flowers directly to your door

A bouquet of flowers is one of the simplest, most time-honoured gifts you can give to someone to show them you care. Of course, you want to make sure said bouquet is up to scratch - there's nothing more dispiriting than a bunch of sad, wilted flowers.

So which florists are the best? From fabulous budget bouquets to dazzling artisanal arrangements, here’s our list of the top online flower delivery services in the UK.

The best flower delivery services 2020

Floom: best luxury flowers

More a network than a florist in its own right, Floom links online shoppers with independent florists across the UK. As soon as you hit the site’s homepage, you’re asked for a postcode and are given a list of products from sellers who will deliver to that area. Their flowers and plants are typically high-end, with prices to match - you can spend in the region of £200, although there are also bouquets at the £30 mark. New customers will get free delivery on their first order.Buy here

Appleyard: best for beautiful bouquets

A company whose arrangements are classically elegant, and typically made with flowers from growers in the UK. While it’s easy to spend extravagantly at Appleyard, there is also a section of products in the £20 to £40 price range. Currently, only Londoners can enjoy same-day delivery, but a next-day service is offered across the UK.Buy here

Marks & Spencer: best for variety

The high-street mainstay has alway excelled in flower delivery, offering a free next-day delivery service if you order before 7pm, and Sunday delivery is available on certain products too. If you fancy treating someone to something a little more leftfield, take a look at their excellent selection of plants, too - they offer everything from peace lilies to lavender trees. Their flowers, fizz and chocolate hampers are also great-value, available from £40.Buy here

Interflora: best for delivery options

Interflora started as a humble, telegram-run company between the wars, but is now a booming online business. Their bouquets are bright and fun, if a little generic. But what we like best about this company is the sheer number of deliver options. Order before 6pm, and you’ll get next-day delivery; order before 3pm and you’ll get same-day delivery. Those who are frequent flower-gifters should consider their Delivery Pass schemes, which offer year-long savings on delivery charges.Buy here

Moonpig: best value for money

The company best known for its cheerful customisable cards also run a fantastic flower delivery service, and one that’s great for those on a budget: you’ll find cute bouquets for as little as £18. A drop-down menu which lets you search by intended recipient - mum, girlfriend, male teacher, and so forth - is a boon for the inexperienced buyer.Buy here

Bloom & Wild: best for letterbox flowers

If you want to guarantee timely delivery, considered treating that special someone to letterbox flowers - and take a look at Bloom & Wild before anyone else. Their letterbox-friendly options are exquisite, ranging in price from £23 for the Ella (alstroemeria, scented freesia and solidago) to £44 for the Eternal Valentine (heidi roses, lilac roses and rice flowers). There’s something very special about opening a plush box, to be met by the scent and sight of a bundle of neatly wrapped flowers.Buy here
