A bunch of flowers

Comments (3)

MANY of us will be grabbing a bouquet this Mother’s Day, but M&S is said to be the pick of the bunch when it comes to flowers that last.

Consumer organisation Which? has said the £35 Spring Brights Gift Bag bunch from the high street store scored the highest mark in a survey.

The flowers – including roses, chrysanthemums and geraniums – were described as ‘a good-quality bunch’ and ‘well-presented’ and said to last for a week.

Ceri Thomas, editor of Which? Gardening, said: ‘It’s the best of the lot and the roses are still perky.”

The full rankings were: Marks & Spencer £35 Spring Brights Large Gift Bag (94 per cent); Teleflorist £32 Vibrant Bouquet (81 per cent); Next £29.99 Spring Bright Bouquet (79 per cent); Lakeland £34.99 Bright Bouquet (77 per cent); Moonpig £35 Spring Tulips (73 per cent); Scilly Flowers £28 100 Scented Narcissi (70 per cent); Waitrose £35 Passionate Tulips Bouquet, a Valentine’s Day offering no longer on sale (67 per cent); Serenata £29.98 Kaleidoscope Deluxe (66 per cent); Wiggly Wigglers £34.95 Wiggly Posy (62 per cent); and Interflora £32.98 Scented Spring Perfect Gift (53 per cent).

    How about people not fall for this "Mothers/Fathers/Valentines,Grand Parent" day con. Why not give flowers ANY time of the year? I'm sure people would appreciate it more. I know I would.

    Which? magazine has never had any flowers delivered by M&S then.. utterly shambolic and days late. The date you order for is the date it will turn up in the courier depot.. not your doorstep. If you order for a Saturday, don't expect them until Tuesday, if at all. Read some of these reviews here: http://tinyurl.com/qzowynx Go to Interflora, they will get delivered on time, not days later.
