GIFTED: I was recently sent a gorgeous Scented Garden Bouquet from expert florists Appleyard London. I adore fresh flowers and they are my new favourite things to photograph. I hope you feel I did this lovely bouquet justice. And read on, because there’s a chance to win a bouquet like mine at the end of this post.
What particularly impresses me, apart from the quality of the flowers is that Appleyard London offers a 7-day freshness guarantee as well as promising to refund you in full if your flowers don’t arrive in time for a special occasion.
I don’t know about you but I have certainly had Mother’s Day flowers that have gone astray and late birthday deliveries.
Appleyard London delivers across the UK with same day delivery up to 8 pm (4 pm if you are in London). Delivery is free on certain bouquets and you can track your order online too.
As well as hand-tied bouquets, they offer a floral subscription service starting at £22 which is a nice gift idea.
The Scented Garden Bouquet featured here is a colour rich mix of blousy pink Mayra garden roses, vibrant cerise roses with clematis and Veronica. It’s the kind of bouquet that is feminine, luxurious and lifts any space in which you display it. And, as the name of the bouquet implies, the fragrance is wonderful.
Appleyard London has a particular expertise in roses and orchids, which you can buy in a bouquet or potted.
Did you know there are 25,000 species of orchid?
I’m afraid my track record with any potted plant isn’t particularly great – apart from Spider Plants which aren’t the most glamorous, even if they do help with air quality! Something to think about when you’re choosing a gift (you’ll find chocolates, champagne and hampers on their website too).
The prize is an Appleyard Scented Garden Bouquet RRP £64.99 for one lucky winner.
Entry is via the Gleam widget below and the usual terms and conditions apply which you can find on my giveaways page.
The giveaway is open to UK entrants only and ends at 11:59 pm on Tuesday 30 April.
