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. Read on for my Appleyard Flowers review.
Appleyard Flowers Review
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 Flowers 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 which is a nice gift idea. Prices start at from £22 for the Classic collection and £26 for the Lux collection for a new set of blooms straight to your door every month.
You don’t have to pay monthly either. There are prepaid plans for 12 months, 6 months and 3 months and Appleyard London is very flexible as you can pause deliveries if you are going on holiday or will be away.
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 Flowers has 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).
If you have been thinking about gifting a subscription service to your loved ones, flowers are a fabulous choice. Fresh flowers in the house always brighten my spirits and waiting to see what the month’s blooms will be is definitely something I would look forward to.
