Review: Sensational Sunflowers From Prestige Flowers

Readers of this blog will know that I am a huge fan of fresh flowers.  There is nothing like a flower delivery to brighten both your day and your home.  Prestige Flowers recently gifted me with some fabulous summer flowers from their range of Next Day Flowers – an arrangement of bright and breezy sunflowers guaranteed to add a pop of colour wherever you place them.

They arrived by next day delivery, safely packaged in a stout cardboard box with a cute welcome note tucked inside.  The blooms were carefully wrapped in moistened material to keep them fresh.

Sunflowers are one of our favourite flowers but their thick, woody stems will require cutting back a little to allow them to absorb water from the vase. And, it transpires, there’s plenty that we did not know about them.  For example, each sunflower is made up of tiny individual flowers and a typical bloom can have up to 2,000 of them!

And did you know that the sunflower’s name comes from its tendency to turn itself to face the sun? Its genus, Helianthus, is the combination of two Greek words — “helios” meaning sun and “anthos” meaning flower.

Sunflowers were worshipped by the Incas due to their resemblance to the life-giving sun and in Chinese culture, sunflowers are said to mean good luck and lasting happiness and are often given at graduations and at the start of a new business.

Sensational Sunflowers From Prestige Flowers

When you order a UK flower delivery from Prestige Flowers, you also receive some free chocs.  From past experience, the chocolates accompanying other flower deliveries I have had haven’t been particularly exciting but these were delicious British handcrafted chocolates from Valley Chocolates in Yorkshire.

The box contained a dozen chocolates including Strawberry and Lemon Truffles, a Lime and Cornish Sea Salt Square and a Caramel Crown.

I also received a soft and fluffy cuddly bear from Keels Toys (just add £7.99 to your order) and we are all fighting over who will get to keep him.

If you need to arrange a UK flower delivery, I’d recommend Prestige Flowers.  Whether for a gift or a thank you, you can get a lovely arrangement with free chocs from £19.99 and with next day delivery – just order by 7 pm.  Flowers can be delivered 7 days a week and delivery is contactless which is reassuring at the moment.

After spending so long in lockdown thanks to COVID-19, I think there are plenty of people who need cheering up – and thanking too!
