It’s that time of year when many of us thank or remember our mothers with a large bouquet of flowers.
Nobody wants flowers that fade after a day or two, and some delivered bouquets can be costly. So where should you go to get the best value for your money?
Martyn James, consumer expert on The Sun’s Squeeze Team, says: “Avoid delivery costs and save yourself a package by buying a bunch of flowers in a supermarket and delivering them in person.”
Here, mother-of-three Lynsey Hope sees how store flowers compare to more specialized bouquets.
Lynsey says: I loved Aldi’s range of flowers, especially this bouquet. It had more hydrangeas and a nicer pitcher than eFlorist’s.
Lynsey says: The bouquet from Amazon is expensive. Instead I put together two bundles from Sainsbury’s. They even looked fresher.
Lynsey says: Interflora’s is impressive. But from its chic packaging, it looks little different from Tesco’s bouquet.
Lynsey says: The Moonpig bouquet is very pretty, but quickly deteriorates. The cheaper Waitrose bundle has more stems.
Lynsey says: M&S’s are very pretty, but Morrison’s has a similar bouquet without the sunflowers. They have held up well too.
Lynsey says: Prestige’s are incredibly expensive, while Asda’s are a bargain at £3. You can even buy two bundles and put them in a gift bag.
