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.”
