Online flowers not all blooming marvellous

18 March 2009

Shop around online and you’ll find there’s plenty of flowery bargains to be had ahead of Mother’s Day this weekend. But will you get the sumptuous bouquets you see in the pic or something looking more like a fistful of brightly-coloured weeds?

Researchers for Which? Gardening suggest that in truth it’s a bit of both, with a wildly varying bunch of results from their survey of online floral fare. Their gnarly-handed experts shook the soil out of their hair and analysed a range of bouquets ordered from the net with Marks And Spencer coming out as top dogs for their Large Serene Bouquet (right).

Next and Interflora also scored well, but Teleflorist, Flowers Direct and Aldi Flowers were adjudged to be the skankiest blooms on the block. More on the survey here.
