The Great British Florist | Review

The Great British Florist*

Most girls love flowers - it's almost a fact. When I was offered a posy bouquet a couple of weeks ago, I of course jumped at the chance. My white roses that my boyfriend bought me were on their way out, so it was pretty good timing!

I've never heard of The Great British Florist before. To be honest, I've never bought or received flowers from an online store before. It doesn't have a massive selection, but what it does offer is handpicked posies and bouquets to suit each occasion. Sometimes you don't need loads to choose from.

They arrived really quickly, in the biggest box EVER. I was surprised at how well packed it was - the flowers weren't damaged in the slightest. The presentation was lovely too as they were hand-tied - it was a shame to take them out to put in a vase to be honest.

I can only presume I received the British Posy, as each posy is different and handpicked - I quite like that it was surprise and the flowers are unique to me. The posy was filled with a variety of flowers... I can't tell you the names of each one, because I have no idea, but they're all so pretty and colourful, and the smell of them is gorgeous (but quite strong when you first open the box)! They also lasted quite a while - flowers only tend to survive for a few days, but these lasted just short of a week, which was pretty good going. I also received a thorough guide on how to ensure my flowers last longer, which I thought was a really nice touch.

For around £35, the flowers are pricey, but if you want a high quality florist that will deliver your flowers safely (and quickly) then I recommend The Great British Florist. I hope they get some more selections soon (maybe smaller bouquets or the ability to choose your own flowers).
