Review: Getting in Janes good books with Blossoming Gifts

Postman knocks on the door and hands over a big box. Inside the big box is a lovely bouquet from Blossoming Gifts. Surely I’m on to a winner here with 😉

With so many florists out there, it is hard to know who to choose especially with the run up to Valentine’s Day.

For the past few years, I’ve tended to avoid the usual high-street suppliers after being disappointed by the quality, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised at the quality and value for money from a bouquet we received from Blossoming Gifts.

Blossoming Gifts have a huge selection of bouquets at very reasonable prices for all different occasions and it helps that their website allows you choose which specific day you’d like them delivered.

The Lily & Rose bouquet

With Jane being a lover of pink, I plumped for the Scented Lily & Rose bouquet containing Sorbonne pink oriental lilies and sweet avalanche roses with delicate green bell foliage.

Our bouquet arrived in an extremely sturdy box to protect the flowers during transit and unusually, Blooming Gifts left a number of “guard petals” still attached. This is a good thing!

Florists usually remove guard petals for aesthetic reasons, but as they provide protection to the more delicate petals of the rose (usually 2 or 3 per bloom), Blossoming Gifts leave them in place to ensure the flowers arrive in the best possible condition.

Once you receive your bouquet, you simply peel and discard the guard petals revealing the rose in all its glory.

The bouquet hadn’t even begun to flower when we took delivery meaning we’ve had the maximum amount of time to enjoy them. Looking and smelling lovely in the hall, a week after we took delivery, the Scented Lily & Rose bouquet still looks as fresh as the day it was delivered.

Ideal for Valentines

The selection of Valentine’s Day flowers from Blossoming Gifts, all of which are handmade, caters for all tastes from traditional roses through to Germini, Chrysanthemum and Daisies.
